By Ron Ledgard Published: August 16, 2013

Here are the channels for Fox Sports 1 and FS2 for the four most prominent video providers in the Akron area:

FS1 is Channel 75 on Time Warner Cable; FS2 is on Ch. 328
FS1 is Channel 219 on DirecTV (no listing for FS2 yet)
FS1 is Channel 652 on AT&T Uverse; FS2 is 651
FS1 is Channel 150 on Dish (no listing for FS2 yet)

If you live outside the area or have a different provider here is a link to a channel finder provided by Fox Sports.

Yahoo! Sports put together FAQs for the new sports network and below are what I consider the top 3. And here is a link to the FAQ segment that gets into NASCAR and the loss of Speed Channel and Fuel TV too.

Q: How will FOX Sports 1 be different from the other sports networks I get?
A: Over the past several years, FOX Sports has acquired or renewed rights agreements with entities like the FIFA World Cup, MLB, NASCAR, NFL, UFC and collegiate conferences like the Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, Conference USA, Pac-12, and soccer leagues around the world to develop a full, robust programming schedule. FOX Sports 1 will have nearly 5,000 hours of live event, news and original programming annually.

Q: In addition to NASCAR, what sports will FOX Sports 1 televise?
A: FOX Sports 1 has seven pillar sports: college basketball and football, MLB, NASCAR, NFL (ancillary programs), soccer and UFC. FOX Sports 1 boasts nearly 5,000 hours of live event, news and original programming annually and that number will continue to grow. College football on FOX Sports 1 is highlighted by regular season coverage of Big 12, Pac-12 and Conference USA games. FOX Sports 1 carries dozens of exclusive prime time college basketball games from the Big East, Big 12, Pac-12 and Conference USA and the network is home to the Big East men's basketball tournament. Starting in 2014, select MLB League Championship Series and Division Series games as well as regular season games are coming to FOX Sports 1. Soccer is highlighted on FOX Sports 1 with the world's most prolific club soccer competitions, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League and CONCACAF Champions League. FOX Sports 1 carries the world's oldest soccer competition, the FA Cup; CONCACAF Gold Cup; CONCACAF Qualifiers, FIFA Women's World Cup coverage in 2015 and 2019; FIFA Men's World Cup coverage in 2018 and 2022. UFC is also a core programming pillar. In addition to Saturday pay-per-view preliminary cards, Wednesday nights are home to the UFC with UFC Tonight, live events and The Ultimate Fighter.

Q: Can I get FOX Sports 1 on my phone or tablet?
A: When FOX Sports 1 launches in August, the FOX Sports GO app will also be released. The groundbreaking mobile sports experience for iPhone, iPad, Android devices and web will offer more than 1,100 live games and events from across FOX Sports, FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports' 22 regional sports networks. It will also have scores, highlights, news, stats and analysis. Access to games and live events will be free to fans who receive their video programming from a participating cable, satellite or telephone company.
