Now that NBCSports has snapped up EPL, what does FoxSoccer do?



Pick up other premier leagues (Spanish, German, Italian) or close up shop?

Drive a hard bargain with the leagues you mentioned, and promote the hell out of real football, as opposed to punt and run under it?

Spain, attacking football and tactical
Germany, some English semblance, and tactical
Italy, tactical, tactical, did I say tactical?

I hope they get all 3. I'd like to pick a team in those leagues as well. I'd be more interested in Spain and Germany.

My guess would be Germany, Italy, Brasil, and Mexico(maybe).

I don't see beIN letting Spain go.

Pick up the Bundesliga from GOL. Continue with the UCL and future World Cup coverage. They'll be more than fine.

You may want to write this in Italian, as I don´t understand this in English.

What is beIN Sport's contract with the Spanish, German, and French league? Any chance of two networks being able to show matches like ESPN/FSC with the EPL?

Oh, and by the way, I'm getting beIN Sport next month!

BeIN doesn't have Bundesliga, they're still with GOLTV.
BeIN has Italian Serie A and Coppa, Spanish La Liga and Copa, French Ligue 1, English championship, most Europa League.


Not sure what their precise deals are with matches they don't show. They actually show a few more Serie A matches than FOX did though and I think more La Liga than GOLTV though most are delayed.

Mostly live on beIN's Spanish channel (English SAP)

I'm most interested to see what happens with commentary for the Premier League on NBC next year. The shell-less turtle won't be able to give us his SKY stream

When do all the other leagues contracts run out? Will NBC give the MLS back to ESPN? We are about to hit that dry time in sports where these leagues should try and get on.

All the BeIN deals for US/Canada, I believe, are through 2016.

I think I recall Bundesliga's deal with GOL being 2014.

OK McKay. What I meant to say was, your comment in English was muddy. You speak English and Italian, but prefer to watch English. What the hell does that mean?

Use your brain. I trust it works as well as an English one, even though you may have less than favorable ancestry.

Seriously, say what you meant to say, when writing what evidently doesn´t properly transmit your thought or intention.

English is my first language. I will naturally want to watch English football. 99% of people would have understood what I was getting at. I'm not sure if this is some type of troll or something....

No fricking idea from your post. Simply, you state that you speak it. What the hell has that to do with your choice of football viewing? Absolutely nothing.

Because they punt and run under the ball in English? WTF? Do you have problems following the match when those who do not hail from the Isles are in on the play?

lol. right.

I have no problem at all. I simply enjoy it more when I understand what the commentators are saying, instead of some annoying Eastern European/Arab gibberish. I'm speaking in reference to FSC and carrying English games, because that's the only soccer channel I have. Otherwise I'm streaming from some foreign country Hezbollah news source or something.
