According to an AP wire story Fox Soccer Plus reaches deals to start airing DirecTV, DISH Network and Verizon FiOS have agreed to carry Fox Soccer Plus when the network launches Monday.
The new network, a companion to Fox Soccer Channel, is taking over many of the rights that had been held by Setanta USA, which shuts down Sunday night. Fox Soccer Plus, a premium channel, will televise the European Champions League, the English Premier League, FA Cup, League Championship, FA Cup and national team and the Italian Serie A, plus rugby from the Magners League, the Guinness Premiership and the Heineken Cup.
None of the cable carriers will televise the new network in HD at this time. DISH is carrying FSC in HD and will charge $14.999 monthly for Fox Soccer Plus as an “a la carte” option.
I don’t have the Mediacom HD package, if they were to add this channel it would be the motivation I need to finally spend the money. What is your experience, tell me if you see the new channel now that it’s premiered!
