Fox Sports Southwest was originally named Home Sports Entertainment (HSE), one of North America’s first regional sports networks. From its launch on January 4, 1983, it broadcasted collegiate and professional sports teams from Texas and surrounding states.
In 1944, HSE was bought by Liberty Media while remaining affiliated with Prime Sports Network. Its name was then changed to Prime Sports Southwest. But not long after, in 1996, News Corporation, now Fox, bought 50% of Prime Sports Network including Prime Sports Southwest. It was then rebranded into Fox Sports Southeast on November 1 of the same year.
It was again converted into two more names within the next years, Fox Sports Net Southwest and FSN Southwest until it was finally reverted to Fox Sports Southwest in 2008 to date.
Until today, Fox Sports Southwest is still owned by Fox Cable Networks. Its headquarters is located in the suburbs of Irving, Texas, in Dallas-Fort Worth. Its master control is in the operations of Fox Sports Networks in Houston.
In the FSN Group, Fox Sports Southwest is second on the ranking of the regional networks with the highest market and total viewers.

Its broadcasting zones are Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Oklahoma, and New Orleans.
