  1. Reading the press release “between the lines”, there is no mention of what FOX plans to do with the Spanish-language US rights to the Europa League.

    Can anyone say “sublicense to ESPN Deportes”?

    I know you can…

  2. Fox better partner with DirecTV, not everyone likes to watch a match via the internet when one’s preferred method of watching is via a big screen.
