Fox Soccer Channel Bringing Premier League Matches Live to the Internet

fox soccer channel Fox Soccer Channel Bringing Premier League Matches Live to the Internet
Beginning this August, Fox Soccer Channel will begin broadcasting some Premier League matches live via the Internet at

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.

    Yea but I wonder how much it is going to cost?

    My guess, free for a while. They won’t be showing ManU-Chelsea, but a mid week clash between 2 bottom of the table teams seems likely.

    Remember the crowd for the CL the chat had mid week. Well people can tune in on their computer at work. FSC ma for once be trying to get ahead of the market.

    Hopefully they won’t mess up the broadcast.

    Will it be only available for ppl with US based IPs?

    No word on the cost yet or whether it’ll be blocked for users overseas. My guess is yes, there’ll be a cost associated with watching some matches live (although it depends how many are offered).

    They’ll have to block the internet feed from people with IP addresses overseas. Otherwise, they may run the risk of being sued themselves.
