looks like TWC is going to remove Fox Deportes and Fox Soccer from the expanded basic tier and you will need Digital basic or the spanish tier to view Fox Deportes and digital basic or el paquetazo to view Fox Soccer channel.

Well I only watched FSC HD and FSP HD anyway.

They've been heavily advertising Fox Sport 1 lately, so as long as that channel and, hopefully, Fox Sports 2 get added, I'll be satisfied.

There will be nothing to add, Time Warner already carries these channels. And FSC goes away on Sept 2 of this year anyway.

Speed is rebranding to Fox Sports 1
Fuel is rebranding to Fox Sports 2
Fox Soccer is rebranding to FXX

Fox Sports 1 will carry MLB, UFC, NASCAR, EUFA and NCAA Football related content. Fox Sports 2 will carry some of the more niche sports content and extreme sports. FXX will be a spinoff of FX. News Corp is doing the same thing as Turner has been doing for years. TBS = Comedy, TNT = Drama. FXX = Comedy, FX = Drama. All sports content that currently airs on FX will be moved on to FS 1 or FS 2. The rebranding of Speed and Fuel happens Aug 17, I believe. at this time the long term future of Fox Soccer Plus is unknown, but it looks like it will be around for the foreseeable future.

Have you heard anything about TWC adding Univision Deportes which has been available on Dish and DirecTV and uverse since their start?

I thought that it would've been added a long time ago to the Texas area at least.
