FSN TV Schedule For Champions League And EPL Games Revealed

fox sports net logo FSN TV Schedule For Champions League And EPL Games RevealedFox Sports Net (FSN), the regional Fox TV sports affiliates around the United States, will play more of a pivotal role during the 2009-2010 season in broadcasting not only the recently acquired Champions League coverage but also Premier League football, according to a unnamed source.

In fact, you’ll be able to enjoy five hours of continuous soccer coverage on Tuesdays when Champions League matches are scheduled.

Here’s what the TV schedule looks like for a FSN affiliate, which reveals the amount of coverage that TV viewers can typically expect to see (all times eastern):

Saturday, August 15, 2009

  • New season kicks off

Sunday, August 16, 2009

  • EPL Review Show, midnight

Monday, August 17, 2009

  • Premier League game [pre-recorded], 3pm

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

  • Premier League game [replay], Noon
  • Champions League pre-game show [live], 2pm
  • Champions League game [live], 2:30pm
  • Champions League game [delayed], 10pm

Friday, August 21, 2009

  • UEFA Champions League Magazine show, 6pm
  • UEFA Champions League Magazine show [replay], 10pm

Sunday, August 23, 2009

  • EPL Review Show, midnight

Monday, August 24, 2009

  • Premier League game [pre-recorded], 3pm

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

  • Premier League game [replay], Noon
  • Champions League pre-game show [live], 2pm
  • Champions League game [live], 2:30pm
  • Champions League game [delayed], 10pm

Friday, August 28, 2009

  • UEFA Champions League Magazine show, 6pm
  • UEFA Champions League Magazine show [replay], 10pm

Sunday, August 30, 2009

  • EPL Review Show, midnight

Monday, August 31, 2009

  • Premier League game [pre-recorded], 2pm

The TV schedules are subject to change based on each regional FSN network due to local coverage and blackouts. The schedule is not complete, but it shows you a preview of what to expect during a typical two week period.

When Champions League matches are shown, you’ll be able to see five hours of continuous soccer coverage beginning with a Premier League match (replayed from the prior weekend) followed by the Champions League pre-game show and then followed by a Champions League match itself.

Plus, on Tuesdays when sports broadcasts such as baseball may be televised, there’s a very good chance that a Champions League match will be shown on delay from earlier that day.

Last week, we broke the news that the Premier League Review Show was returning to FSN. Plus our sister site Major League Soccer Talk described in more detail in April how acquisition of the Champions League TV rights by Fox Soccer Channel would also help FSN.

To watch as much Champions League coverage next season as possible, you’ll need Fox Soccer Channel, FSN and Setanta Sports (for broadband coverage).

Besides the Champions League, the increased coverage of the Premier League by FSN will definitely help promote the league (and Fox Soccer Channel) throughout the United States and will increase visibility for the league.
