FOX International Channels announced last August of their move to consolidate sports shows in 3 new channels. Basically turning FOX Sports, Star Sports and FOX Sports Plus, into  Fox Sports, Fox Sports 2 and Fox Sports 3

One of the reasons for this is to provide more airtime for Sports that the local market is looking for.

Fox Sports will be featuring more on Basketball, Football and Nascar events.
