FOX Sports 1 Reaches Deal With Three Major TV Providers

If you subscribe to television service through DirecTV, DISH Network or Time Warner, you likely have been sweating whether you will get FOX Sports 1 in time for Saturday’s card.

Well, have no fear, as the sides have come to an agreement to bring the network into the homes of over 40 million people this weekend.

“FOX Sports 1 just finished its deal with Direct TV, Dish and Time Warner!” UFC president Dana White posted on Twitter Wednesday night. “Everyone has FS1 now :) time for some fights.”

UFC Fight Night 26 takes place Saturday from Boston’s TD Garden. The event starts the all-sports network off with live fights, including Chael Sonnen vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

FOX Sports 1 takes the place of the Speed Channel, while FOX Sports 2 is slated to replace FUEL TV. UFC programming in the future will be on both networks.
