PSN is heading for resurrection in Brazil under the aegis of Fox Sports, which has taken over some assets from the extinct channel. The new name is Fox Pan-American Sports, and its launch in Brazil is scheduled to coincide with the Pan-American Cup in August (formerly the Mercosur Cup). It may even be generated in Brazil, via a partnership with a local production company that would be responsible for supplying some of its content. Sources tell PAY-TV News these plans won?t hinder the creation of ESPN Fox Sports as a joint venture of Fox, ESPN and Globosat, currently awaiting judgment by CADE, Brazil?s competition tribunal. The Finance Ministry?s economic surveillance unit (SEAE) has submitted a technical opinion opposing the joint venture, however. Like the extinct PSN, Fox Pan American Sports will be a premium channel and will sell à la carte. Flagships will include the Libertadores Cup, for which PSN had a seven-year contract. Fox Sports continues in the rest of Latin America.
