Before it was Fox Sports Net...

Typical Phenom

I think what it was is all the local sports networks being bought up and being combined into one large network. For example, in Minnesota here we used to have Midwest Sports Channel, which then became Fox Sports.

The Fox Sports Regional Networks, or simply Fox Sports Net, are cable TV networks that were originally owned by separate companies. The most notable were the SportsChannel networks, which went on the air in 1977 with the original SportsChannel (now Fox Sports New York), and the Prime Sports Networks, which went on the air in 1983 with the charter member being Prime Sports Southwest (now Fox Sports Southwest).

During the 1990s, News Corporation, which launched the Fox Network in 1986, bought both the Prime Sports and SportsChannel regional sports networks.
