Fox Sports New Orleans is an American regional sports network serving Louisiana, East Texas, parts of Mississippi, parts of Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle[1] that is operated as an affiliate of Fox Sports Networks. The channel is owned by Fox Cable Networks, a unit of the Fox Entertainment Group division of 21st Century Fox.

Its formation was announced on June 25, 2012, after Fox Sports Networks signed a new long-term carriage agreement with the NBA's New Orleans Pelicans.[2] Fox picked up rights to the Pelicans after Cox Sports Television declined to renew its contract with the team.[3] The channel launched on October 31, 2012, and aired 75 games in its first season while the team was still named the Hornets.[4]

In 2014, Fox Sports New Orleans has also shown the occasional Tulane Green Wave football game, starting on September 9, 2014 when the team played on the road against Duke.[5]
