Just as I was really excited about the launch of FOX Soccer’s Premier League TV coverage this summer, I ended up being severely disappointed. The same can be said — if not worse — about the relaunch of FOXSoccer.tv, FOX’s broadband channel which promises “Watch Live Soccer Anytime, Anywhere.” Maybe […]
