FOX Sports South is a regional cable sports network that was launched on August 29, 1990 as SportSouth. Originally, the network was owned by Turner Broadcasting System, but in 1996 was purchased by Fox Cable Networks. It became known as FOX Sports South in 1997. The network's headquarters are located in Atlanta, Georgia.
FOX Sports South coverage included Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, plus parts of Kentucky and Florida. However, the channel was separated into sub-regional fields to maintain the home territory rules of the professional sports leagues. In 2008, the network began to separate into different channels, such as FOX Sports Carolinas.
FOX Sports South covers Major league sports plus the collegiate events, including the Southeastern Conference, Atlantic Coast Conference and Big South Conference. Teams found on the channel include the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks and Atlanta Braves. FOX Sports South also has exclusive regional cable rights to teams such as the Carolina Hurricanes, Nashville Predators and Memphis Grizzlies, as of 2015.
