Fox Sports Carolinas is an American regional sports network that is owned by Diamond Sports Group, a joint venture between Sinclair Broadcast Group and Entertainment Studios, and operates as an affiliate of Fox Sports Networks. The channel is headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The channel broadcasts professional, collegiate and high school sports events, with a primary focus on North Carolina-based teams, namely the Charlotte Hornets and Carolina Hurricanes. It is available on most cable providers in North and South Carolina, with an estimated reach of four million cable television subscribers; Fox Sports Carolinas is also available nationwide on satellite providers DirecTV and Dish Network.
Fox Sports Carolinas launched on October 31, 2008, and was created through the separation of Fox Sports South into three regional networks: the main Fox Sports South channel (originating from Atlanta), Fox Sports Carolinas and Fox Sports Tennessee.
The channel holds the regional cable television rights to the Charlotte Hornets of the NBA and Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL; it also carries team-related programs from the Carolina Panthers NFL franchise, and broadcasts games and team and collegiate programs from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and Southeastern Conferences (SEC). Fox Sports Carolinas also broadcasts Major League Baseball from two of its sister regional networks: the channel carries Fox Sports South telecasts of Atlanta Braves games in South Carolina, and portions of the Charlotte and Piedmont Triad markets; and Fox Sports Ohio telecasts of Cincinnati Reds games within and surrounding Asheville, Charlotte and Winston-Salem.
Fox Sports Carolinas HD is a high definition simulcast feed of Fox Sports Carolinas, which airs most Charlotte Hornets and Carolina Hurricanes games (including tape-delayed late-night replays) and events telecast nationally throughout the Fox Sports Networks in the 720p format. Fox Sports Carolinas HD originally transmitted only during game telecasts (with a test pattern being shown at other times) until July 2009, when it was converted into a 24-hour channel.
