Welcome to the new beginning

world-soccer-talk-new-beginning

Now in our 11th year of covering soccer, World Soccer Talk is proud to announce that we’re making several big changes to the site. For us, it’s a return to our roots (I’ll explain more about that later). But we’re confident that most of you will enjoy the new focus of the website.

With the new World Soccer Talk, our goal is to make it as simple as possible to find out where you can watch games legally on TV and streaming.

The changes are not just focused on providing TV schedules. We’ll be providing a more immersive experience with tools and how-to articles as well as videos and more.

We’re planning on simplifying the search for soccer games in 3 ways:

First, we’ve redesigned homepage to feature a list of the upcoming games that are available via US TV and/or streaming. The idea is to give you a quick reference guide that you can use to watch live soccer. The list will be continually updated, so it can be your go-to destination to find out what games are on now and where you can watch them.

Second, we’ve added a ‘Find your game’ tool to the homepage. Using the drop-down list, it takes just seconds to find out the TV/streaming listing for the team you want to watch. This removes the need to “hunt and peck” through pages and pages (like on other sites).

Third, we’ve significantly expanded the depth and level of our league TV listings. While previously we had TV/streaming listings for the top leagues, we’ve now expanded those pages to feature more detailed listings for the top 10 leagues that are shown on US TV and streaming. And we’ll be adding other leagues soon to make it more comprehensive.

In addition to the above changes, we’re adding another unique feature that we believe can change the way soccer fans watch games. It’s a five-star rating system that allows soccer fans to rate the game they’re watching, and to see which games are the most exciting to watch.

Instead of sticking with the boring game you’re watching, you can now see what the ratings are for other matches to see whether it’s worth switching the channels. A scoreline by itself can’t disclose how entertaining a game is. We believe the rating system will provide soccer fans with a valuable resource that they can access at their fingertips.

Speaking of fingertips, we’ve made 2 more huge changes to the site:

1) Based on the feedback from you, the readers and listeners, we’ve changed the design theme of the website. The new theme is slicker, easier to navigate and loads much more quickly.

3) And second, the mobile version of the website will load more quickly and effectively than in the past. This way, you can use your mobile device to look up the latest TV schedules or to rate the game you’re watching — in seconds.

We’re excited about these changes for many reasons, and we hope you are too. For us, it marks a return to our roots. In the first version of EPL Talk (our former name) that we launched in 2005, the main feature of the site had TV listings as well as links to streaming radio broadcasts (long before live streams of games online were available). Over time, the site evolved but TV listings has always been an important part of our strategy. Plus, our Premier League TV schedule webpage is still one of the most trafficked pages on our website even more than 10 years later.

While a lot is changing with World Soccer Talk, we’ll continue to provide you with the latest news and opinion articles about world soccer. The World Soccer Talk Podcast will continue to air too, bringing you expert analysis from Kartik Krishnaiyer, Nipun Chopra, Richard Farley, Kristan Heneage, Morgan Green and others.

As a result of the new focus of World Soccer Talk, the navigation will be different with TV schedules and news about the soccer TV and streaming industry being featured more prominently. But you’ll still be able to find the same great articles that you’re accustomed to seeing too.

We’re planning on diving headfirst into bringing you all of the information you need to help you watch the best soccer on the planet.

We’ll need your help more than ever — to rate the games you watch, and to continue to interact with soccer fans from all over the world.

Thanks for your loyalty and patience. On behalf of everyone here at World Soccer Talk, we’re tremendously excited about what the future will bring.

Cheers,
Christopher Harris (aka The Gaffer)
