Fox Sports is a Latin American pay television network that is owned by The Walt Disney Company Latin America, a unit of the Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International. The network focuses on sports-related programming including live and pre-recorded event broadcasts, sports talk shows and original programming, available throughout Latin America. The network is based in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay.

History

The network was launched in 1996 as Prime Deportiva, under the ownership of Liberty Media. Prior to its launch, on October 31, 1995, News Corporation acquired a 50% ownership interest in Liberty's Prime Network group and its international networks (including sister channels Premier Sports and Prime Sports Asia) as part of an expansion of its Fox Sports properties in the Americas.[2][3] In 1996, the channel was rebranded as Fox Sports Américas, later shortened to Fox Sports in 1999.

In 2009, a second feed called Fox Sports+ was launched, to allow simultaneous broadcasting of football. In 2012, the channel was renamed to Fox Sports 2, whereas Speed Channel was rebranded to Fox Sports 3.

On February 21, 2019, Bloomberg reported that Disney will divest the Fox Sports television network from the 21st Century Fox purchase in order to get an approval from the governments of Mexico and Brazil. The division is among the last major hurdles for the Disney-Fox deal.[4]

  • Fox Sports (Chile) -- localised feed exclusively available for Chile, replacing Fox Sports on November 2013.
  • Fox Sports 1 (Chile) -- formerly known as Fox Sports Premium, it was launched at the same time as its sister channel. It covers pay-TV events from Fox Sports and Fox Sports 2 that can't be aired live on the localized feed due to broadcast licenses.

  • Fox Sports (Uruguay) - localised channel launched in February 2014 with original programming and voice-over narrations for Uruguayan football teams.
  • Fox Sports Premium (Argentina) -- additional pay-TV channel that was launched on August 2017 due to the agreement between Fox Broadcasting Company and Turner Broadcasting System (via TNT Sports Argentina) to share their purchase on the Argentine football matches from free-to-air airing on State television, such as the Superliga Argentina (National First Division).
