News presentation and formats have long since changed and that too quite dramatically. From pre designed scripts which were just to be read; now news has become more interactive with more features, reviews and interviews being added to the normal news bulletin.
Another major development has been the airing of breaking news, live action as it happens in the hub of action. Breaking news is just not limited to covering social, political or economic happenings but has extended to the world of sports. Sports breaking news is quickly becoming a frequent feature of most these news channels who aim at getting the complete lowdown about the sports action.
A lot of sports information gets listed daily and is listed as sports breaking news. But for the sports enthusiast, it is actually of extreme importance that this information is authentic and of consequence. It has been seen in a number of cases where sports bloopers are presented as sports breaking news. Usually it takes a while to filter such information and obtain information that is of any real consequence.
To fill out these discrepancies there are some reliable sports news channels which cover virtually all of the sports breaking news events and bring them to their viewers. A few of these channels are ESPN, Sky Sports News, BBC Sport and Fox Sports and convey latest sports news from around the globe for their viewers.
Fox Sports is one of the most popular sports news providers in the United States. Since their inception they have aimed at covering major and very popular sporting events from across the nation.

Besides this, they, along with their sister channels, also cover football championships from countries such as Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, Italy etc. Fox Sports has also forayed into the arena of action sports through the help of Fuel TV another sister channel.
ESPN on the other hand calls itself the “worldwide leader in the arena of sports”.
