What Is Fox Deportes?

Since 1996, the channel has been known by a variety of names such as Fox Sports Americas, Fox Sports World Espanol, and Fox Sports en Espanol. In 2010, the channel was rebranded under its current name.
Shows, live events, and other programs mostly presented fully in Spanish. But some content is provided in English with Spanish on-screen graphics.

Fox Deportes is the home for games featuring teams from domestic leagues such as Major League Soccer (MLS), Liga MX, and Liga MX Femenil.

Does Thursday Night Football air on Fox Deportes?
Fox had the rights to simulcast Thursday Night Football (TNF) games through the 2021-2022 season. However, starting in September 2022, the rights to those games will be shifting to Amazon Prime. Therefore, Fox Deportes will not broadcast TNF contests going forward. Of course, it’s likely that there will still be a way to watch these games in Spanish after the new rights deal takes effect.
