FOX Sports Florida, Sun Sports alternate channel information

Due to contractual obligations and scheduling conflicts among our team partners when seasons overlap, games that are traditionally seen on FOX Sports Florida and FOX’s Sun Sports are made available on our second channel: FOX Sports Florida Alternate and Sun Sports Alternate.

As the exclusive local television partner of the Miami HEAT, Miami Marlins, Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Rays, Orlando Magic and Tampa Bay Lightning, FOX Sports Florida and Sun Sports televise over 700 live events annually. With multiple teams and just two channels, scheduling conflicts are inevitable, particularly in the spring and summer when all six teams are in action. FOX Sports Florida Alternate and Sun Sports Alternate offer a solution.

The alternates are available to all cable and satellite providers that carry our networks. While some providers offer the alternates as a 24-hour full-time HD channel, others choose to activate the alternates in conflict situations, or designate a local channel to show the events.

As our networks continue to expand their programming lineup, FOX Sports Florida Alternate and Sun Sports Alternate becomes an essential outlet to televise more sports programming.
