According to FOX Sports, “Given the broad U.S. reach of FOX and extensive international distribution of the series, the first episode of BEING: LIVERPOOL is available to more than 300 million homes worldwide. Such wide distribution is fitting in that Liverpool is one of the most decorated soccer clubs in the world, with 18 topflight English titles, seven FA Cups and a record eight League Cups to its name.”
