Beginning this weekend, commentary of every single Premier League match this season will be available live for free from talkSPORT, the UK-based sports talk radio station.
Under the new rights deal signed earlier this year, talkSPORT acquired the radio rights outside Europe for the next four years. The radio commentary will be available in English, Spanish and Mandarin.
The full 90-minute radio commentary for every Premier League game will be available through talkSPORT’s website at www.talksport.com The British broadcaster acquired the domain earlier this year from a sports message board that previously had the talksport.com domain name.
Registration is required to listen to the commentaries, but it’s free. The free radio commentary is available to residents in North America, Asia, Africa, Australasia, and South America.
This is certainly another big win for soccer fans who are on the road, or who prefer to listen to radio commentary as an alternative choice. This means no more radio commentary from Sirius satellite radio as we’ve had in previous seasons.
