Complaints About Fox Sports Asia[edit]

Fox Sports Asia (Fox Sports 3 HD) in Taiwan often does not keep the schedule as published by MOD or on Fox Sports Asia's own website.. This happens often for F1 broadcasts. Fox Sports Asia broadcasts other, local programs, delays the broadcast or only broadcasts only part of the program. Advertisements in Taiwan run very long, often they are local adds and sometimes they occur during critial stages in the races. This often results in competely losing where the race is or what has happened during the breaks, losing the context of the commentatory and loss of large parts of the F1 race. Furthermore, the channel take preference for matches such as basketball and baseball where Taiwan has some interest in, be it a local match or a international match with local players and thus broadcasts this instead of the scheduled F1 race. In all the many years (about 10) before Fox Sports Asia took over STAR Sports such problems never happened. Multiple emails to highlight these issues in Taiwan to Fox Sports Asia were never replied. It appears the Taiwan distributor of Fox Sport Asia totally ignores the published schedule and just broadcasts whatever they prefer. On November 4, 2014 the scheduled F1 replay was not broadcast at all and replaced by local high-school basketball and local basketball news. The slogan is absolutely correct: Sports goes Boom! The channel were sport goes absolutely "kaput" !
