but it's football (lite)
I like D* but their negotiating team sucks!!!
yet there are no niche channels of any other kind in the DTV library?
First time I'm hearing the US is not part of the rest of the world.
It is part of the world, just not the football loving part of the world.
When it comes to soccer its not
Then why did ESPN buy the rights to show some EPL matches? Why did FOX show the Champions League Final on its network channel? Why does the US have 3 channels dedicated to the sport?
Is soccer part of the big 3? Absolutely not, but to say no Americans care is asinine and unintelligent. Just because the black guy with the lazy eye doesn't say "booyah" to the highlights, doesn't mean no one watches.
I am glad we got HD soccer, it will give me something to watch instead of college football. :lol:
Not sure why I'm taking time from watching my favorite sport in beautiful HD to comment on such narrow-minded posts but...
Please, stop wasting forum bandwidth.
All I’m referring to is the fact of regional relativism. What is hot and interesting for West Coast or a larger metro area does not always transfer to the rest of the nation. Issue is not new. All I’m saying when a sport like soccer is being pushed and yet remains unpopular in this country it seems someone is trying to buck the facts.
Example, last year ESPNU starting carrying SEC games. As popular as SEC football is in the SE and other parts of the country it was no suprise to see D* not carry it in HD. I bet if it had been PAC 10 or Norte Dame they would have jumped at carrying it in HD, even though the ratings would probally have been lower.
It's been said in this forum and other places, soccer is very popular with certain demographics, the Latino communtiy to name one. These broadcast companies recognize that and are aiming to attract those groups. (Hispanics are becoming the nations largest ethnic group)
:lol: Some people in places like Hunstville, Alabama seem to think the SEC is God's gift to football & nothing else in life matters.
You hate soccer, we get it. GolTV & FSC are/will be the recent HD additions. Complaining will have no affect.
You just justified these additions. Thank you! :lol:
Don't know about that.
War Eagle, dude.
You think your complaining or anyone else here have any affect on HD additions? If that was the case, then AMC & BBCA would've been added looooong ago.
It's human nature to rather complain than to voice satisfaction. It's why some groups of people think they're in the majority when in fact they're far from it.
I really wish there was a rule on this board that said "No Soccer bashing". It's gettng old seeing the same posts over and over and over. Soccer bashing is just as bad a derail to threads as politics talk. Cut it out!
This is one of the most moronic thoughts I have seen on this forum in quite some time.
Personally I wont watch soccer HD or not, when I was growing up in Alabama only girls and stoners played soccer... no offense to anyone intended...
but I can see why it should be added, it is one of those sports that should be in HD jsut like Hockey and Rugby and SEC football I mean FFS NASCAR and Golf are in HD.....
I am personally only interested in fsc+ so that I get rugby in HD as I have found an addiction for southern hemisphere rugby.
and for the record SEC should always be in HD
War damn Eagle!
class of '91
love Rugby too, support Bath in the Northern Hemisphere and the Brumbies down south.
Then I guess DirectV is going for that demo, right?
