MotoGp will be on Fox Sports 1 this weekend

Heads up so you are not frantically looking for it on speed on Sunday

http://auto-racing.speedtv.com/artic...o-motorsports/

Earlier this year, FOX Sports signed a three-year deal with the MotoGP World Championship, renewing a long-running relationship with the world’s most prestigious motorcycle series. On launch weekend, FOX Sports 1 offers fans LIVE coverage from the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway, one of three U.S. venues on the MotoGP international circuit. Below is the schedule for MotoGP racing on Aug. 18.

• MOTOGP MOTO3 (Indianapolis, 11 a.m. ET, LIVE)
• MOTOGP MOTO2 (Indianapolis, Noon, LIVE)
• MOTOGP WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (Indianapolis, 2 p.m. ET, LIVE)

In addition to MotoGP, FOX Sports 1 and the FOX family of networks continue to be the home for Monster Energy Supercross and the ARCA Racing Series. Look for announcements in the near future, as FOX Sports 1 brings additional motor sports programming to America’s new sports network.

Capturing all of the sports action throughout the day, fans can catch up with motor sports news as part of the new FOX Sports Live, the flagship news, opinion and highlights program airing nightly on FOX Sports 1, premiering at 11 p.m. ET on Aug. 17. For more information on FOX Sports Live, please visit: HERE

In addition to FOX Sports 1, additional motor sports and automotive programming will continue to be a part of the FOX family of networks daily lineup, including launch-weekend coverage of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Lucas Oil Motocross, MotoGP qualifying and the Rolex Sports Car Series from Kansas.

LIVE coverage of the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auctions, the undisputed leader in the collector car world, also continues across the FOX family of networks.

everyone will not be getting the new channel

Four days until launch and Fox is still negotiating carriage with three major cable and satellite providers for Fox Sports 1. As it stands now, DirecTV, Dish and Time Warner Cable remain the lone holdouts to pick up FS1 in time for its big launch on Saturday. If the stalemate holds past this weekend, it means that 47 million homes across the country won't have access to the new cable sports network.

Sports Business Daily's John Ourand reports that as of today, AT&T U-Verse, Cablevision, Charter, Comcast, , Suddenlink and Verizon FiOS have signed up to carry Fox Sports 1. That amounts to 45 million homes. Back in July, we told you that Fox was having trouble in gaining carriage and one month later, that is still the case. When the network was officially announced back in March, Fox boasted that the network would be available in 90 million homes, but right now, it hasn't even hit 50 million. Unless something drastic happens this week, Fox will be way short of its goal.

As with the CBS/Time Warner Cable dispute, this whole issue is about money. Fox wants to charge 80 cents per subscriber at the outset with the cost eventually rising to $1.50. The channel which Fox Sports 1 is replacing, Speed, cost the cable and satellite providers 23 cents per subscriber. So you can see the providers are balking at the price increase. And while the talks between Fox and the three holdouts are ongoing, there's little hope that an agreement will be reached in time.

The three remaining holdouts have been stubborn over certain sports networks and have been willing to keep them off their systems for extended periods. In DirecTV's case, it's going into its second year of its dispute with Pac-12 Networks. And Time Warner and CBS are going into their second week in their fight.

Can the stalemate be broken in time? There's a possibility, but if recent history is any indication, subscribers to DirecTV, Dish and Time Warner may have to wait a while before they're able to see Fox Sports 1 on their televisions.

I thought speed was becoming fox sports?

For many operators, FOX Sports 1 will launch in the same channel location now occupied by SPEED. We hope that all major cable, satellite and telephone video services will offer FOX Sports 1 at the time of its August launch, giving it wide distribution in over 90 million homes. Specific channel information will be posted at FOXSports.com closer to the launch date.

Looks like SPEED is being replaced

The onscreen guides are wrong at times, so I wouldn't go by that
