    Can't wait until they decide to create a third channel, FXXX.

    "You know, Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually, I didn't even notice."

    This is mostly because they lost the rights to English Premier League soccer, which will be on the various NBC channels next season. I wonder how much of the other soccer programming they have will remain?

    From what I've read (more speculation), their remaining soccer would slide over to Fox Sports One (currently Speed) or Fox Sports Two (currently Fuel).

    Thanks for the info and reminder. With the USWNT season being over, I need to turn off Fox Soccer.

    I can't see them moving first run episodes of any of their comedies to a channel that most people don't get. I have FX but FSC would cost me an extra 7 bucks a month. Most are in the same boat.

    Fox Soccer is included as part of the DirecTV Choice Extra package now and does not cost extra. I think this was part of their preparation for the change to FXX. I am not sure what tier other providers have the channel on.

    I was wondering if this was because soccer on US TV just doesn't make it, or if there some shift in soccer coverage. I had forgotten that EPL had moved to NBC next year. I didn't even watch this channel, so for me, this is definitely a net gain. Sounds like they are doing here what TBS did with their two entertainment networks.

    I didn't know that. I had subscribed to the Sports Package just so I could get Fox Soccer for USWNT.

    Thanks for letting me know.
