CBS and CBS Sports Network have picked up the BIG 3:

 

Smart move since they have plenty of open ad blocks in summer. FS1 can use baseball and other programs to fill those in, CBS cannot.

Which channel is available in more homes, FS1 or CBS Sports Net?

 

I have FS1 on my basic HD package with Xfinity, but would need to upgrade if I wanted CBSSN

FS1 by far.  CBSSN is  only in as little as 44M to as many as 50M homes. FS1 is in 83M.

I see. I'm guessing BIG3 will air it's Friday night games on CBSSN and the Saturday games on regular CBS

After losing UFC you would have thought Fox would have wanted to keep as much live programming under their channel as possible.

Saturday is MLB. Sunday is MLS.

 

And Fox teamed up with Al Haymond and his PBC boxing brand to replace UFC on Fox and they partner with the PPV side with this four year contract. Ten cards will be on Fox and an additional 12 cards will be on FS1 each year.

 

But as I wrote earlier in the thread, Ice Cube and his partners in the Big3 were not really in line with the direction which "New Fox" was going to go after the asset sale to Disney was announced.

According to a post on their official facebook page (and I'll assume on other official BIG3 social media) BIG3 games will be on Saturdays and Sundays this year.

We don't have anywhere in Seattle for Big3 to play, unless they mean Hec Ed at UW.

I assure you, it's not. It's under construction now for the new NHL team. The Storm are playing at Hec Ed this year.

Aren't they also playing a few home games in Everett?

 

I would guess that the WNBA would love to be in the same position the MLS is in now: growth and expansion.
