The new Premier League (known in the US as the EPL) kicks of this coming weekend, and I am still bummed out that Comcast is still not offering Setanta Sports as an option package.
I wrote previously about my disappointment with Fox Soccer Channels EPL lineup last season. They basically sold half their rights to Setanta in order to secure the rights to MLS games. I was hoping that Comcast would announce that they were going to partner with Setanta and offer this channel before the season began. But it seems it is not to be. Comcast are really forgetting about their soccer watching audience. Dish Network and DirectTV both offer Setanta Sports already.
One of the cool things about setanta is that they also show the 6 nations rugby championship, as well as the rugby world cup. I have missed my rugby immensely since moving here, and would love to introduce my lovely wife to the gentlemen’s game. Come on Comcast, you gotta get going on this… Or maybe its time to switch to satellite?
