It's Official (Finally): Setanta Sports USA Launching On Verizon FiOS In July

Posted on by Jeff Hash

 It's Official (Finally): Setanta Sports USA Launching On Verizon FiOS In JulyIt has been a long test of patience for EPL fans in America and Setanta to see if the sports channel would finally make the jump to cable. Today, the wait has finally come to an end.

Verizon and Setanta have confirmed that Setanta Sports USA will be added to Verizon’s fiber optic cable system beginning next month in some areas, and will be available in the following months to all FiOS areas. Just like on DirecTV or Dish Network (or IPTV providers Gek TV or NexTV), the channel will cost $14.99 a month to FiOS subscribers.

Verizon told Multichannel News that at launch, it will be the only cable system to offer the channel. This would mean that Setanta’s other rumored cable deal with RCN would not start at the same time. FiOS is currently available in 13 states, and had 1.2 million subscribers as of March 2008. There is no word at this time about whether or not Verizon will offer Setanta’s overflow channel Setanta Xtra, which is currently only on DirecTV.
