I wonder how regionalizing EPL matches in the U.S. would work.
quote:That makes more sense. Yeah, I used to hate when the FOX station on the coast would not show the few EPL matches that FOX showed live. The station would show some god-awful hunting and fishing shows instead.
I assume he means regionalizing coverage on main NBC based on regional soccer interest/affiliate preference (aka letting affiliates choose whether they want to show EPL games or not). When NBC says they will carry an 11:30 central game, the affiliates will have to show it.
agreed. FSC is terrible. BeIN is much better.
Just in terms of broadcasts, and original programming.
FSC is wildly overrated by American soccer fans. The network never really had any competition for its rights until the past few years, and never seemed to improve its telecast. That's why Eric Wynalda and Warren Barton still have jobs. ESPN and NBC wouldn't put up with their mediocre analysis. Americans just have this loyalty to it because it showed the Premier League before any other cable outlet.
Yea they really do. The analysis for the rest of their sports is so miserable that it makes me forget about their soccer staff.
