San Francisco, CA – Fox Sports Net announced today the launch of Fox Sports Net Plus, which will carry Fox Sports Net games when the network has dual events scheduled for the same particular time period. The announcement was made by Jeff Krolik, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Fox Sports Net Bay Area.
Fox Sports Net Plus events will be on Comcast Bay Area channel 15 or 22 in most cases, 655 on DirecTV, and 445-448 on Dish Network. Viewers on other cable systems are encouraged to call their cable provider for the channel of Fox Sports Net Plus.
On days with simultaneous games, Fox Sports Net will carry one game, and the cable and satellite providers will make Fox Sports Net Plus available to air the second contest live. Fox Sports Net Plus will be made accessible by Comcast Cable, other area cable companies and satellite providers, to deliver more live events to viewers in Northern California and Northern Nevada.
The first Fox Sports Net Plus game airs January 15. Fox Sports Net will cover the Warriors/Cavaliers at 7:30 P.M., while Fox Sports Net Plus concurrently carries Sharks/Canucks live at 7:30 P.M.
Currently, five events are scheduled on Fox Sports Net Plus through February 19th (3 Pac-10 basketball, 1 ACC basketball, and 1 Sharks). Additional Fox Sports Net Plus events will be announced at a later date.
