FS1 On Dish
Channel 150 is the place to go on Dish to watch Fox Sports 1.
Don’t ask me why FS1 is after FS2 although most of the best games are on FS1.
Fox Sports 1 is in a row of about 20 sports channels on Dish. Before FS2/FS1, is ESPN and its affiliated channels and after the Fox Sports channels are channels like the MLB and NFL Network.
When games aren’t on FS1, sports commentary are on. The most popular news shows on FS1 are Shannon Undisputed and The Herd with Colin Cowherd.
What most people watch FS1 for is the games they air from the following leagues – the MLB, NCAA, Nascar, and FIFA.
It’s a rich bounty.
For instance, 40 regular season MLB games are on FS1. From our research, at least 8 of the playoff games will air exclusively on the channel.
That makes Fox Sports 1 a can’t miss channel.
Besides MLB, both NCAA football and basketball are on FS1. Some notable games you’ve got to watch include the Holiday Bowl and the Pac 12.
Finally, Nascar and soccer are on FS1. The World Cup is likely to come back on Fox Sports 1 in 2026 and you’re not a true Nascar fan unless you’re able to watch the best races on the channel.
What Channel Is FS2 On Dish
Go to Channel 149 to watch FS2 on Dish.
Fox Sports 2 runs mostly reruns of FS1 programs. If there’s multiple games, the bumped game will air on FS2 instead of FS1.
FS2 does have unique content of its own. There’s not much but they have Big East basketball and Mountain West Football.
You’ll also have the chance to watch some classic and new Rugby games as well.
Most people get FS1 and FS2; they’re useful to have together but most people will spend more time watching Fox Sports 1.
Fox Sports On Dish
Fox Sports on Dish is more than FS1 and FS2.
It’s also the games that air on the FOX broadcast channel and even Fox Business!
Unlike Fox Sports 1 and 2, finding the broadcast Fox channel can be more of a challenge.
That’s because broadcast channels developed differently than cable networks and have a lot of affiliates who had all different channels.

A final thing that you need to know is that games will air on Fox Business on busy weekends. That’s because the market is closed those days and the same parents owns all those channels.
