Fox Soccer Channel Bringing Premier League Matches Live to the Internet
According to a source at Fox Soccer Channel, the 24/7 soccer network will show a combination of some live matches not airing on the channel and selected matches on short delay. The live Internet feed will not be a simulcast of the channel.
The news comes after Fox Soccer Channel last week announced a deal to show Premier League highlights in the United States via the Internet and cellular phones beginning in August with the 2007/2008 Premier League season.
Allowing soccer fans to watch Premier League action legally via the Internet is a huge step in a positive direction. While Fox Soccer Channel is making big advances with technology, so too is Setanta Sports who is expected to announce this summer that some of their matches will be available via Setanta Broadband also beginning in August.
