Fox Sports Tennessee is an American regional sports network that is operated as an affiliate of Fox Sports Networks. The channel is owned by Fox Cable Networks, a unit of the Fox Entertainment Group division of 21st Century Fox. It serves 1.8 million people in Tennessee, northern Alabama, eastern Arkansas, and northern Mississippi. It was created in October 2008 when Fox Sports South was split into three feeds, the other two being for Atlanta and the Carolinas.[1]

Fox Sports Tennessee holds the regional cable television rights to the Memphis Grizzlies (NBA) and Nashville Predators (NHL). It also carries Major League Baseball games of the Cincinnati Reds (via Fox Sports Ohio)[2] and St. Louis Cardinals (via Fox Sports Midwest),[3] as well as coverage of Southeastern Conference college athletics. It also airs Fox Sports South's main feed of Atlanta Braves (MLB) games throughout Tennessee.

Availability[edit]

FS Tennessee is available nationwide on DirecTV and Dish Network, and on most cable providers in Tennessee, northern Alabama, eastern Arkansas, and northeastern Mississippi.

Most Predators and Grizzlies games and national Fox Sports Net games and events on Fox Sports Tennessee are available in 720p high definition. Prior to July 2009, the HD version of the channel was only on-air during games and displayed colored test pattern bars the rest of the time. Since July 2009, FS Tennessee HD has transitioned to full-time channel, although live sports games as well as their late night replays are the only programs in HD.
