Easy, What do you think will be the result of ESPN having competition?

Better shows, or more of the same.?

Well, they are losing the rights to the Premier league so I will definitely be watching less. They will still have UCL, EL, and FA Cup matches though.

I read that Gary Payton will be part of their NBA coverage team, so they have that going for them.

They have two guys from TSN (ESPN's Canada equivalent) that are absolutely terrible. Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole...its dry Canadian humor and it is very painful to watch, let alone an American audience. You will be pulling your hair out with them.

you be the judge

Well, FOX no longer has the rights to the EPL or MLS but they will be airing UEFA Champions League, Europa League, and CONCACAF Champions League matches.

I watch The Speed Channel as I'm a car guy to catch Pass Time and the car auctions. I see that this is going to be carried on the old Speed Channel spot (150 Dish) and they did about 3 million ads about it during the car auction last night and if their show is as boring and mind numbing as them bragging about themselves it will be terrible.

:roll:

Sounds like ESPN to me.

Why doesn't soccer have its own 24/7 network so the rest of us that don't watch it or care can be free from hearing about it?

FOX already has two dedicated soccer channels.

I am extremely bitter over it! I chatted with DISH today and they told me that they are not even going to carry it at the moment due to a dispute with FOX. I pay extra for the programming (top 200) package I have because I am a huge motorsports fan and SPEED was the place to watch that until this year. They lost F1 coverage to NBC, World Superbike coverage to Al Quaeda television (al Jazeera owned anyway) and now MotoGP which has the Indianapolis race this weekend are all going or gone. I have resorted to watching the F1 broadcasts on Spanish tv! Still no idea how or where I will be able to watch the race Sunday! Oh the Humanity!

This last year has been full of the sat channels battling with Fox,(actually their owner Northwest Sports) which is a huge conglomerate based in Chi-Town. They almost caused Direct TV people to miss last years super bowl and we over here in Eastern Washington were without Seahawks games for about a month.

Give it time and it will work itself out. For once this kind of problem is not Dish or Directs fault. When Fox started years ago this small company was smart enough to grab that franchise and now they are basically the tail that wags the dog as far as Fox is concerned.

I may have to resort to one of the shadier European feeds just to watch a goddamn domestic round of the biggest two wheel racing series on the planet. BURN IN HELL FOX!

They must have listened to my bitching! I just got an email from DISH telling me that Fox Sports 1 will be available 8/17 on ch 150 and I will not have to upgrade my programming to get it. Small win for me! Woo hoo!

I'm guessing the are trying to update the Speed Channel. So now rather than all we car people getting something to watch most of the time we will have to check the schedule and when we can avoid more sports than we'd like.

It seems to me there are way to many sports channels now and the next time Northwest Sports,(the owner of Fox franchises) goes on strike we will lose this channel as well as our football ones.

But I'd wager they will drop all this other sports stuff when Barrett-Jackson is on because I think they draw huge numbers for their car auctions, especially the one from Scottsdale, Az in January.
