Setanta Breaks Sky Premiership Monopoly

setanta sports 600x391 Setanta Breaks Sky Premiership Monopoly

In breaking news, Setanta has won the bids for two of the six Premiership TV rights packages, with Sky picking up the remaining four.

This means that from 2007-2010, Sky will show 92 live matches while Setanta will show 46.

Overseas rights are yet to be finalized, but the repercussions of the above decisions will definitely impact watching the EPL on TV in North America.
