    Mexican soccer is by far the most popular of all leagues available
    in the USA. The reason is simple. Most of the games are shown free
    on over the air TV. If I were the FMF I would worry. Over time
    Mexican soccer will lose viewers.

    I have to disagree. The US experience has been the more the sport
    is on free tv the greater it’s popularity. The NFL is the prime
    example of it. The most popular MLB team in my home town of Chicago
    is the Cubs. Why is that? It is because they had more free tv in
    the 60′s and 70′s than the other team in town. When the NHL
    Blackhawks started puttting home games on free or basic cable 4
    years ago their popularity soared. I look forward to the channel
    although with Comcast I never seem to get things right away. Also I
    need to improve my Spanish.

    This really has little to do with Spanish football since Al Jazeera
    won the rights. Not all La Liga fans are Mexican or even Spanish

    Thiz new channel messed up viewing of the FMF across the US most
    people dont have dish cuz they dont let them put it in apartments
    like us so we miss out on all tha exciting games. The FMF and the
    people who made this channel will start to lose veiws cuz the
    economy is to bad so we can pay to see these soccer games in
    Univision Deportes. So in my opinion if it were for me i would say
    that the company that made this channel to just take it off or do
    something for people who cant see those exciting FMF Soccer Games
    cuz i wouldnt want to miss the Fifa World Cup 2014 :) Thank u for
    listening nd hope u guys do sumthing about it Please :)
