Greetings from the sister site!
Over at Soccer on Dish, we’re back from a summer holiday, and we’re ready and raring to wake up at 5:45 to watch the Community Shield.
But there are a few items you might want to know about:
— Aside from dropping GolTV, Dish Network has added the NBC Olympics Soccer Channel, and it’s all soccer, all the time, and in HD no less! Too bad we can’t get the EPL in HD yet.
— Fox Soccer Channel can help fill the La Liga void with the SuperCopa, which pits Real Madrid and Valencia against each other on Aug. 17 and Aug. 24.
We’ll be back contributing here on the mother ship site, too, and I’m really looking forward to being a part of the live blog for opening day of the EPL. The season finale live blog was tons of fun (especially as a Man Yoo honk). And if you didn’t know and you have a Dish Network account, Setanta is available for free for some users on channel 406 or 852 for 60 days!
So even with the odd name (I don’t JUST talk about satellite. cable people have feelings, too), we’re going to do our best to follow every move on the dial that relates to soccer.
Come on by and say hi!
