  • Fox Sports is the brand name for a number of sports channels, broadcast divisions, programming, and other media around the world that are either controlled or partially owned by the family of Rupert Murdoch. These assets are held mainly by Fox Corporation, with the exceptions of the operations in Australia, which are part of News Corp Australia and rest of the international Fox Sports channels which are owned by The Walt Disney Company. In addition, its regional sports networks along with Fox College Sports are owned by Diamond Sports Group, which is a joint venture between Sinclair Broadcast Group and Entertainment Studios; they were managed by Disney until the sale to Sinclair and Entertainment Studios occurred on August 23, 2019. The name originates from the Fox Broadcasting Company in the United States, which in turn was derived from the name of the Fox Film Corporation (later 20th Century Fox). The Fox Sports name has since been used in Fox Corp's, News Corp's and Disney's other sports media assets around the world. On December 14, 2017, Disney announced the plan to acquire 21st Century Fox (Fox Sports' parent) for $52.4 billion; this included key assets such as 20th Century Fox, FX Networks, National Geographic Partners, its regional sports networks, and its international sports networks. The Fox television network, Fox News Channel, and the non-regional Fox Sports assets (FS1 and FS2 cable channels, and the part of Fox Sports attached to the Fox television network) were spun off into an independent company run by the Murdoch family, eventually named Fox Corporation.
