I will only subscribe if fsc and fsc+ are part of the same package.
If FSC moves a lot of its Serie A programming to FSC+ I will be pissed. I'm not paying $30 a month just to get FSC and FSC+.
Do I have to cancel Setanta and add FSC + or will it do it automatically?
Per DirecTV CSR, the switch will happen automatically, you would need to do anything for it.
Just checked MCN, they put the story back up.
Something official from FOX:
That is what I would like to see eventually. I only subscribe to the Sports Pack for FSC and to a much lesser degree GolTV. I don't feel like paying $30 a month for the two Fox channels, but would gladly give up the rest of the Sports Pack for an all soccer pack.
so has it been confirmed that FS+ will be dropping part of the setanta coverage?
they haven't announced SPL, French League One or Russian Premier League rights, so we all assume they are going away.
I think that the 2012 Euro Qualfiiers were not picked up either, and in Rugby I did not hear that they will be continuing to show the 6 nation tournament that is the most important national Rugby tournament in Europe.
RIP Setanta, FSC+ begins at 6AM Eastern.
it's live! short name is FSP - still not in any online TV guides that I see
EDIT: looks like it's FSCPL in the online TV guides
It's channel 621 - same as Setanta was - you'll probably have to check the edit box to show it in whichever guide you keep proper football.
Oh, and if you had season passes set-up on Setanta, e.g., EPL, etc., you may as well delete those and reset them.
It doesn't happen automagically.
a chance for fox sports to provide us with the most coverage of Euro soccer , they mistakenly remove some the good sports .. Certainly not adding fox+
It looks like directv is making the same mistake as the record companies. trying to sell an expensive product you can get for free. Until there is a soccer ticket at a reasonable price then I will continue to watch the EPL for free through streaming on the internet.
Is FSC+ in HD? I was not a subscriber to Setanta but would consider it if FSC+ was HD.
619 (FSC) still isn't in HD is it?
Is 621 14.99 a month to get, as people predicted?
Thanks for answering my questions!
Not yet, speculation is that it may launch when D12 is active
Not yet, see answer 1
Only things dropped from Setanta were French League, UEFA 2012 qualifiers, SPL on delay, and Russian League. Serie A from Italy was added. Check out www.foxsoccerplus.com for schedules and details.
looks like i will be cancelling tonight . . . i dont' see why i should pay $15 per month to get leagues that are covered on FSC. I am sure that i won't be the only one.
IMO, this channel is appealing to only english die-hards, which i am not. unless they are planning on acquiring additional leagues in the future, this really looks like a loser to me.
i am curious to hear if anyone is excited about being subscribed to FSP . . .
