Fox Sports Indiana is an American regional sports network that is owned by Fox Cable Networks, a unit of the Fox Entertainment Group division of 21st Century Fox, and operates as an affiliate of Fox Sports Networks. The channel broadcasts local professional and high school sports coverage throughout the state of Indiana, with a focus on professional sports teams based in Indianapolis, namely the NBA's Indiana Pacers.
Fox Sports Indiana was launched on November 1, 2006 as a spin-off channel of Fox Sports Midwest, after the regional sports network obtained the exclusive regional cable television rights to broadcast games from the Indiana Pacers NBA franchise.
On October 16, 2009, Dish Network removed Fox Sports Indiana and sister networks Fox Sports Midwest and Fox Sports Kansas City in a carriage dispute over a proposed increase in retransmission consent revenue paid by the satellite provider. The dispute lasted for one year, with all three channels being restored on October 29, 2010 through the signing of a new carriage agreement.
Fox Sports Indiana holds the regional cable television rights to the Indiana Pacers, and the Indiana Fever of the WNBA. The channel also broadcasts select Major League Baseball games from its sister regional networks, airing Cincinnati Reds games televised by Fox Sports Ohio and St. Louis Cardinals game telecasts originating from Fox Sports Midwest.
Fox Sports Indiana sources its collegiate sports programming from Fox Sports Midwest, and carries the channel's telecasts of events and conference magazine programs from the Big 12 Conference, Conference USA, Southeastern Conference, Western Athletic Conference, Missouri Valley Conference and Horizon League.
