soccer-on-tv

I thought it’d be interesting to take a look at the number of English Premier League matches shown on TV in the US during the first week of this Premiership season and compare it to a similar week from last year. Here’s what I discovered:

  • 20% increase in number of EPL matches shown on Fox Soccer Channel*
  • 66% increase in number of live EPL matches shown on Fox Soccer Channel**
  • 140% increase in number of EPL matches shown on FSC & Setanta combined (compared to just FSC last year)***
  • 233% increase in number of live EPL matches shown on FSC & Setanta combined (compared to just FSC last year)****

*Number has increased from 5 to 6; ** Number has increased from 3 to 5; *** Number has increased from 5 to 12; **** Number has increased from 3 to 10.
