DirecTV Moves FOX Soccer to Choice Xtra and Choice Ultimate, While ESPN3.com Adds 2013 Africa Cup Of Nations

espn fox soccer logos1 DirecTV Moves FOX Soccer to Choice Xtra and Choice Ultimate, While ESPN3.com Adds 2013 Africa Cup Of Nations

DirecTV has moved FOX Soccer from the sports pack to the more widely available Choice Xtra and Choice Ultimate packs. The move means that customers wishing to subscribe to FOX Soccer on DirecTV could save money by not needing to subscribe to the sports pack anymore. Plus, it will help bring FOX Soccer into more U.S. homes.

In other exciting news for soccer fans, this year’s Africa Cup Of Nations tournament will be shown live on ESPN3.com to viewers in the United States. Coverage of the tournament in previous years had been practically non-existent on US television and Internet, so ESPN’s decision to show the competition online should be applauded. It’ll give many viewers of the Premier League a chance to see star players such as Yaya Toure, Emmanuel Adebayor and many others.

The Africa Cup Of Nations tournament runs from January 19 to February 10, and will be staged in South Africa.
