Fox Sports World

Fox Sports World is a North American digital cable network, owned by News Corporation, that specializes in sporting events outside North America. FSW maintains separate channels for the USA and Canada.

FSW features live and tape-delayed soccer matches from Europe and Latin America, featuring at least one live match each week from the English Premier League and German Bundesliga. FSW also extensively covers North American soccer; it has shared broadcast rights for Major League Soccer, and airs at least one live match weekly from that league. It also has exclusive national rights in the USA for the United Soccer Leagues, and airs one live match weekly from USL's top league, the A-League.

Another featured sport is rugby, especially Super 12, selected international matches, and domestic matches from New Zealand and South Africa. FSW also airs highlight packages from the Australian Football League, plus the league's Grand Final live.

The network fills out its schedule with an eclectic mix of programming; among the sports featured (either in anthology form or actual events) are motorsports, cricket, pool, darts, and extreme sports.

However, FSW has not yet filled out its day with sports programming (at least not in the USA); the morning hours are usually the province of infomercials.
