Fox Soccer Launches Redesigned FoxSoccer.tv Broadband Service
Fox Sports International launched the redesigned FoxSoccer.tv today to coincide with the launch of Fox Soccer Plus. FoxSoccer.tv is the broadband portal that previously offered delayed broadcasts of Premier League matches. But with the acquisition of many of the rights from the defunct Setanta Sports, FoxSoccer.tv is now able to show some Premier League matches live – as well as plenty of other content from other leagues including rugby.
“Foxsoccer.tv was redesigned to manage an influx of new live and on demand rights,” said Bhavesh Patel, Vice President of Interactive Media for Fox Sports International. “The enhanced site will offer up to eight live soccer and rugby competitions at once and provide for the ultimate broadband viewing experience.”
Fans can enjoy live matches and unlimited access to on-demand viewing through one of two subscription packs: Championship Pass, offering all matches through May 31, 2010, is available for $44.95 and Monthly Pass is available for $14.95. So viewers can experience foxsoccer.tv, for a limited time the site will offer a Day Pass, offering access for 24 hours, for only $4.95.
