Fox Soccer Plus HD will launch on AT&T U-verse TV beginning Monday, February 21, 2011.
In the above image, you can see a screenshot of the AT&T U-verse TV guide which shows that Fox Soccer Plus HD will be available on channel 1653. If you try tuning to the channel, it says “Service is currently not available in your area. Coming soon…” As of press time, we were unable to confirm the price details but it appears the new channel will be available at $15 per month. There is also a rumor that the channel will be available on a free preview for the first week (February 21-27) on U-verse.
Word from Uverse reps is that is will be a $15 per month fee (same as Setanta) although price is not listed on the web. There is also unconfirmed word that it will be available as a free preview for one week at launch (2/21-2/27).
In the meantime, there is no word regarding if and when Fox Soccer Channel HD will be added to U-verse. Currently, U-verse customers have access to Fox Soccer Channel in SD.
