History[edit]

Fox Sports Tennessee launched on October 31, 2008, and was created through the separation of Fox Sports South into three regional networks: alongside the main Fox Sports South channel (originating from Atlanta, Georgia) and Fox Sports Carolinas, the latter of which launch on the same date as Fox Sports Tennessee.[1] In July 2013, News Corporation spun off the Fox Sports Networks and most of its other U.S. entertainment properties into 21st Century Fox.

Programming[edit]

Fox Sports Tennessee holds the regional cable television rights to the Memphis Grizzlies of the NBA and the Nashville Predators of the NHL. It also carries simulcasts of Major League Baseball games, carrying Cincinnati Reds games televised by Fox Sports Ohio,[2] St. Louis Cardinals games televised by Fox Sports Midwest[3] and (within Tennessee) Atlanta Braves games televised by Fox Sports South, as well as coverage of collegiate sports events from the Southeastern Conference.

Other services[edit]

Fox Sports Tennessee HD[edit]

Fox Sports Tennessee HD is a high definition simulcast feed of Fox Sports Tennessee, which broadcasts in the 720p format. The channel broadcasts most Predators and Grizzlies games (both live telecasts and late night replays) as well as several NCAA football and basketball games shown nationally on FSN and other programming distributed nationally by Fox Sports Networks in high definition. Fox Sports Tennessee HD originally transmitted only during game telecasts (with a test pattern being shown at other times) until July 2009, when it was converted into a 24-hour simulcast feed.
