Watch Fox Sports 1 Live Stream HD
FS1 airs various studio shows mainly involving debating sports topics, especially in the afternoon and early evening. In May 2015, Fox Sports hired Jamie Horowitz, formerly of ESPN, to oversee the channel as Fox Sports’ President of National Networks. Following his arrival, FS1 began to pivot its studio programming towards opinion-oriented panel shows similar to those he oversaw on ESPN, and also hired away several notable personalities from ESPN, such as Skip Bayless and Colin Cowherd (who were featured on new programs such as Speak for Yourself and Skip and Shannon: Undisputed). Horowitz likened this strategy, which has been referred to as “embrace debate”, to that of sister property Fox News Channel; he argued that fewer viewers were watching conventional sports news programs such as SportsCenter due to the ubiquity of online news and highlights, but that there were “record highs” for opinion programs.
After Horowitz’s exit from Fox, his replacement Mark Silverman (who came from Big Ten Network) admitted that FS1 had matured and “grown past ’embrace debate'”, emphasizing a focus on offering shows that are “smart, entertaining and interesting to sports fans”, alongside opinion-based programs.
In September 2018, FS1 premiered a sports betting-related studio program, Lock It In, which features Clay Travis as well as Vegas bookie Todd Fuhrman, former Jimmy Kimmel Live! sidekick “Cousin Sal” Iacono, and Rachael Bonnetta.

The show’s first run featured analysis and opinions on that night’s events and that day’s sports news, with Jay and Dan discussing the day’s major stories from FS1’s sister channels (such as Big Ten Network). In February 2016, the show was rebranded as a late night talk show in order to appeal to a younger generation and to boost low ratings. The program was cancelled on February 23, 2017.
