FSC and ESPN have lost their bid to win the rights. I wonder what will happen to FOX Soccer plus now.

NBC has been getting European sports lately. Formula 1 and now this. Hopefully they'll be able to accommodate for it all. Fox and ESPN have multiple channels for sports but right now NBC doesn't. New channels perhaps?

I really hope they retain the crew who does the Formula 1 races.

Wouldn't they be better off with a crew and chief who knew and loved football? (soccer, if you will.)

Still chuckling. Silly me - searching the site for a thread on "football, soccer, Premier League" before I posted elsewhere.

Why int he world did they bid three times its current rates. Ridiculous. I can see the next increase for NBC coming...

I thought that figure was awfully high too. Are they going to be putting a lot of games on NBC? Anyone have any figures for how the few games that FOX has aired after the NFL on Sundays have done?

No idea on the EOL.... but I was mighty pleased to see they've stopped the annoying sound effects when they whisk some graphic into a corner. They didn't do too badly with the visual portion of the World Series... Now, audio, that's another problem. Not technically, though.

Or the first sign that FOX sports national channel has already found a new home?

Fox has World Cup TV rights in 2018 and 2022. The next round of EPL TV rights will be interesting.

And overly expensive...maybe moreso if NBC allows people to watch EPL matches on devices w/o charging an absurd amount
