Fox sports word was awesome(584)...how can you take away the only channel dedicated to soccer with the World Cup next year(remember the World Cup ratings)? We have millions in this country who love soccer and want to watch worldwide highlights (not just premier league). Remove 1 of the other Million channels you have.

Perhaps the subject should have been "what happened to a dedicated soccer channel" but the point remains the same: we want a dedicated soccer channel not this bunch of channels when I learn how to click back and forth in the right rhythm, I get a decent dose of soccer. We push this issue with fox (who sucks), our cable providers, Espn, and others so that we may hope to receive some decent soccer programming. We have the numbers, the ratings when an event is covered well and marketed well so why should we not demand this: more worldwide. Soccer! And a channel dedicated to this!

Not sure if you are asking what Verizon did with the channel or what Fox did with the channel.  In any event, FSC no longer exists, and that was a decision by Fox, not Verizon.  FSC is no longer available and has been converted to FXX, an off-shoot of the FX channel.

 

FSC went away for several reasons, but most notably, when Fox lost the English Premier League package to NBC, a good portion of their most popular content went away.  Also, FSC doesn't have MLS (NBC), nor does it have the U.S. Men's National team games either (ESPN for now and beIn for away games except for Mexico).  Fox doesn't have the World Cup next year (it does get the 2018 and 2022 versions), so it appears Fox made the decision to pull the plug.  It is likely that when Fox gets the World Cup, it will broadcast games on other cable stations that it owns.

 

While beIn is not a dedicated soccer channel, it broadcasts a lot of soccer, so you may want to look into that channel, which is available on the Ultimate tier or through the Sports Pass package.  Also, NBC Sports has MLS and the Premier League, so you can still get a lot of soccer.

 

Hope this helps...

there is alot of people looking foward to watch the Fox soccer channel for games that are going on now. The reason why i got the higher channel package is because there was soccer channel.. now its take away and now we have to paid another channel to watch soccer that aint right.

The channel was NOT taken away, Fox Networks shut the channel down. You can always downgrade now that the channel no longer exists. If you're upset about Fox shutting down the Fox Soccer channel you should be making your opinion known to FOX, complaining about Verizon is not going to bring a non-existent channel back to life.
