I got sick of having to pay for digital cable + a sports package just to watch EPL games.
Also, HD...

I have been waiting patiently for Fox Soccer HD to show up from my cable provider and nothing. I always look forward to the early Arsenal matches on ESPN2 because those get the HD treatment.

As an aside, no MLS, no EPL, what the heck is left for Fox Soccer to broadcast?

Fox will have to scramble to pick up some rights, probably buy some from BeIn.

They currently have Champions League & FA Cup.
I'd bet they will try to pick up some MLS rights, possibly buy La Liga from BeIn. I also see them doing more reality type shows like the Being Liverpool deal. Then theres also international matches.

Amazing.
I turned it off when they went down 4-0.
Then around midnight, I looked at the highlights and nearly flipped out.

I wonder if that's enough to sustain the channel. Methinks that the same plan is in place for Fox Soccer as is in place for the Speed channel. Slow conversion to a general sports channel a la Fox Sports 1,2,3 etc.

I was at work so I couldn't watch, but I stopped paying attention until my English friend called me right when I got on the train screaming about 4-4 and extra time.

I started following it on a live blog and then laughed like an idiot at 5-7...

Thats something I hadn't thought of.
One of my friends thinks they will move Champions League games & the rest of their soccer agreements to Fox sports, and turn Fox Soccer into an MMA channel, with their interest in UFC.

And now Arsenal has an epic comeback of their own to go along with the one they surrendered to Newcastle last year.
