Soccer fans have rated Fox Soccer Channel as the number one network for quality soccer programming. That’s according to the latest poll by EPL Talk.
Thirty four percent of the fans chose Fox Soccer Channel, while Setanta Sports was close behind with 28% of the vote. ESPN2 and GolTV both receive the same number of votes with 21% of the total. Eleven percent said “Other,” which could include Fox Sports Espanol, Sky Sports or other networks depending on where the fans (i.e. TV viewers) were in the world.
You could assume that Fox received more votes because the vast majority of fans watch the network in the United States for coverage of the English Premier League. Setanta Sports, while growing, still has a limited viewership and many fans complain about lack of access to the network. Setanta is primarily available via DirecTV and ITVN.
Thanks everyone who voted. Be sure to take the next poll (located on the left column of the EPL Talk Blog at http://eplleague.blogspot.com).
