March is the first of two months when the NBA, NHL, MLB, ACC and SEC are all in action and the FOX Sports Regional Networks across the South will televise a live event and/or new original program each and every day.

And beginning March 13th, FOX Sports South and SportSouth will televise six Braves preseason exhibition games (see the schedule on page 3). While March signals the start of the MLB season, it also means every game counts in the NBA and NHL as teams fight to secure playoff berths. The FOX Sports Regional networks across the South will combine to televise 99 games featuring the Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, Indiana Pacers, Carolina Hurricanes and Nashville Predators (availability of games are subject to territorial restrictions).
