Oklahoma, Fox Sports launch sports TV venture

The University of Oklahoma and Fox Sports announced a 10-year partnership Wednesday to air programming of Sooners sports, including live broadcasts of basketball, baseball and softball games.

The agreement allows Fox to air at least 1,000 hours of sports programming each year. Much of the content will be available to about 9 million television homes in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana over Fox's regional sports networks. Some select programming will air nationally on Fox College Sports.

The deal includes pregame and postgame shows for football games, Bob Stoops' weekly television show and coverage of the annual spring football game.

It does not include Oklahoma football games, some of which already air on Fox channels through the Big 12 television contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.
