Premiership Countdown: 10 Days to Go.

We now know what mid-week matches will be shown by Fox Soccer Channel and Setanta Sports during the first week of the Premiership season. With both Setanta and FSC, we now have the opportunity to watch an amazing 11 Premiership matches the first week (compared with an average of 5-6 last season, not including PPV matches).

Fox has also made a change to the start-time of the “Super Saturday +” show. Instead of starting at 2:30pm ET, it’s now been moved to 4:30pm ET, which means that the 3pm tape-delayed matches on Saturday will now begin at 2:15pm ET. The first Saturday tape-delayed match to start at 2:15pm is Reading versus Middlesbrough.

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2:30pm ET (FSC):
Watford vs West Ham United

Tuesday, August 22nd, 3pm ET (Setanta):
Tottenham Hotspur vs Sheffield United

Wednesday, August 23rd, 3pm ET (Setanta):
Charlton Athletic vs Manchester United

Wednesday, August 23rd, 3pm ET (FSC):
Middlesbrough vs Chelsea

There’s been quite a lot of criticism aimed at Fox recently, but Fox Soccer Channel will be showing more Premiership matches this season than last. They’ll be showing one tape-delayed match instead of two this season. And because Fox made the deal with Setanta, we now have many more Premiership matches to watch this season (if we can find a way to subscribe to Setanta for those of us who don’t have satellite).

If Fox hadn’t signed the agreement with Setanta, we’d be watching the same number of Premiership matches this season as we did last year. So, at the end of the day, it’s a win-win for us.

In the meantime, I should be getting more information about IPTV shortly. As soon as I do, I’ll be sure to post it on this blog. Thanks for your support!
