Fox Sports Tennessee is a regional sports network in the United States. It serves 1.8 million people in Tennessee, northern Alabama, and northern Mississippi. It was created in October 2008 when Fox Sports South was split into three feeds, the other two being for Atlanta and the Carolinas.1
FS Tennessee is home to the Memphis Grizzlies (NBA) and Nashville Predators (NHL). It also carries Major League Baseball games of the Cincinnati Reds (via Fox Sports Ohio)2 and St. Louis Cardinals (via Fox Sports Midwest),3 as well as coverage of SEC college athletics. It also airs Fox Sports South's main feed of Atlanta Braves (MLB) games throughout Tennessee.
Most Predators and Grizzlies games and national Fox Sports Net games and events on Fox Sports Tennessee are available in 720p high definition. Prior to July 2009, the HD version of the channel was only on the air during games and displayed colored test pattern bars the rest of the time. Since July 2009, FS Tennessee HD has transitioned to full time channel although live sports games as well as their late night replays are the only programs in HD.
During regular programming and national sporting events, the Fox Sports logo is shown with a dark blue, rounded arrow shaped drop-down containing the word "TENNESSEE". The bottom of the drop-down contains a small arrow, colored light blue. During Grizzlies basketball games and Grizzlies Live, the text in the drop-down changes to "GRIZZLIES" (so that the bug reads Fox Sports Grizzlies), with the arrow at the bottom of the drop-down shown in a slightly lighter shade of blue. As for Predators hockey games and Predators Live, the text in the drop-down changes to "PREDATORS", with the arrow at the bottom of the drop-down shown in yellow.
