Fox Deportes (formerly Fox Sports en Español and stylized in all caps as FOX Deportes) is an American pay television network dedicated to broadcasting sports-related programming in Spanish, aimed at the Hispanic population in the United States. Launched in 1993, Fox Deportes, a division of Fox Sports, is the first and longest-running Spanish-language sports network in the country.

Fox Deportes features a diversified programming, including NFL pre and post-season games, MLB regular-season, All-Star Game, Divisional Series, National League Championship Series and World Series, the USGA's U.S. Open, NASCAR, Premier Boxing Champions, college football and soccer competitions including Liga MX and MLS.

The channel first launched in Southern California as La Cadena Deportiva Prime Ticket, a sister network to the original Prime Ticket regional sports network (the present day Bally Sports West), on November 1, 1993. The network was renamed Prime Deportiva on April 1, 1995 to align with the rebranding of Liberty Media-owned regional sports networks with the "Prime Sports" brand. After News Corporation (NewsCorp) formed a 50-50 sports television joint venture with Liberty Media, NewsCorp rebranded the network Fox Sports Américas on October 1, 1996. The network was rebranded Fox Sports World Español in February 1999 to align with the recently launched (November 1997) English-language soccer centric network Fox Sports World. In 2002, the network was rebranded as Fox Sports en Español before becoming Fox Deportes on October 1, 2010.[1]

As of February 2015, approximately 21,831,000 American households (18.8% of households with television) received Fox Deportes.[2]
