Speedvision was launched on New Year's Day, January 1, 1996. Its launch identity was created by Novocom.
On February 4, 2002, Speedvision became Speed Channel and relaunched after its purchase by News Corporation.
In late 2005, Speed Channel re-branded themselves as Speed, cancelling some TV shows including NASCAR Nation. Sometime in 2007, the change became official, as the word "channel" was dropped from its logo.
After the closure of Speed in the United States, it was still available on select cable providers in Canada, the Caribbean and Puerto Rico until 2015.
Fox Sports 1
On March 5, 2013, News Corporation announced that Speed would rebrand as a general sports network titled Fox Sports 1. The channel launched on August 17, 2013.
Since June 2015, a new wordmark was slowly introduced, beginning alongside a redesigned ticker, before being used during college football broadcasts and promotions. Starting in August 2015, the network officially began to be called on-air as FS1, with the network's social media pages adopting new logo and name on September 4, 2015.
