* Fox Sports launches dedicated 24 hour NRL channel Fox League

* Fox Sports pours record dollars into Fox League dedicated NRL channel

* The pay-TV network has poured millions of dollars into the initiative — more cash than its AFL counterpart Fox Footy

* Fox officials are banking on their league showpiece sparking a surge in subscriptions

Some of the key features of Fox League include:
*MORE than 32 hours of live content each week, including all eight NRL matches.
*NINE magazine shows, including an additional four pre-match and post-match programs.
*SIX new faces, including the face of Fox League, Yvonne Sampson, commentator Brenton Speed, as well as recently retired premiership winners Mick Ennis and Corey Parker.
*A QUEENSLAND-ONLY program, which will be hosted by Robert “Crash’’ Craddock with exclusive content from north of the border.
*NEW state-of-the art studios and game-day graphics, including a virtual 10m line that will give viewers a clear idea if a team is off-side.
*AND The Late Show With Matty Johns, which will run directly against Channel Nine’s long-running The Footy Show on Thursday nights.

THE Greatest Game of All is getting the greatest investment of all from Fox Sports

Super League, games from PNG, FRance, England lower divisions along with rep games of various degrees, where are they?

If this channel is just NRL, what an absolute waste.

Yep that would explain the fact that Fox has had the No.1 Fox Footy Channel for how many years now?

RL always playing catch up to the dominant AFL.


"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

So Fox Sports under News Ltd have never been interested in a RL channel, however they were interested enough in the AFL that they continued with the Footy channel, rebranding it Fox Footy and creating - the No. 1 channel on STV during the footy season. Yeah makes sense I guess. lol

as you will know, rugby league was the first of the two sports on the Foxtel..
and it was on Fox Sports..
where the cable network was dominate in the northern states..

the AFL channel fox footy was bought in to entice viewers to the cable network..
from southern states.
NRL however were locked into FOX SPORTS.

had nothing to do with popularity (otherwise NRL would of had an NRL channel since day dot.
