Effective August 17, 2013, Fox Sports relaunched Speed Channel as Fox Sports 1 and Fuel TV as Fox Sports 2.

According to sources on Wikipedia.org:

“Fox Sports 1 airs an array of live sporting events, including college sports (most notably Pac-12 Conference football and Big East Conference basketball), soccer matches (including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, and CONCACAF Champions League), UFC mixed martial arts, and a variety of motor sports events. Beginning in 2014, FS1’s schedule will expand to include Major League Baseball, United SportsCar Racing, and FIA Formula E Championship events, with coverage of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and United States Golf Association championship events starting in 2015. FS1 also features daily sports information, highlights, and discussion programming (with Fox Sports Live serving as the centerpiece), as well as sports-related reality and documentary programming. Both FS1 and FS2 absorbed most of the sports programming from its predecessors, as well as content from Fox Soccer, which will be replaced by the entertainment channel FXX in September 2013.”

“Fuel TV was rebranded as Fox Sports 2 to complement the replacement of sister channel Speed with the general sports network Fox Sports 1; … Upon the re-launch, the channel was expanded into a mainstream sports service with a wider variety of content, although combat sports (such as UFC-related programs) will remain an integral part of the lineup.”
