In case you don't already know..soccertv had this on their website:

Setanta Sports North America has sublicensed US video
rights to selected English Premier League (League) matches
each week during the 2006-2007 season
from FOX Sports International (FSI) for broadcast on
the subscription sports channel Setanta Sports USA
(available via DirecTV channel 615 and the GlobeCast satellite TV
platform for $11.99/month.)

As a result, FSI is NOT expected offer any
League matches via pay-per-view in the US during the 2006-2007 season.

Setanta also announced that Setanta Sports USA will have
English-language coverage of the French Ligue 1
and the Dutch Eredivisie during the 2006-2007 season, replacing
FOX Soccer Channel and ESPN Deportes as the US TV outlets
for those products.

I emailed Setanta the following:


Can you confirm if Directv, Dish Network, and various Cable tv operators
will have the English Premiership Saturday and Sunday pay per view

There seems to be some confusion as to where us footy followers wil be
able to find the weekend ppv matches.

I have Dish network and paid for the entire season package last year.
Someone has sent me an email stating only Directv will have the ppv
My Mom watches them on Cox Cable ( well when Liverpool play....)

So what is the story with the 3pm Saturday and Sunday 4pm kickoff in
England ppv matches?

We will make an announcement this week but until then I can't discuss it.
Formal contracts etc.

So either Setanta has negotiated with Dish Network and the cable suppliers and they will offer the Setanta programming either as a full blown "setanta" channel or through another channel under sub license. ( Like ESPN2 or OLN)

Or i'm going to Directv..

Guess we just have to stay tuned a little while longer..

cheers for the update.  here's hoping that sentanta is made available through all the outlets.  even at the 12 dollars per month, the number of games you get is well worth that price plus some

i just go to a streaming site that shows all the pool matches. you pay alil but see everything

I know where he is referring and last season the coverage was fantastic....but would like to see setanta as a backup to make sure you miss nowt :)

I just know my tv screen is a lot bigger than my laptop...i'd rather see the match there.
