The games they bought (road qualifiers) weren't on regular TV to begin with. Home qualifiers are still owned by ESPN as they've been for years.

I watch a lot of soccer on TV but it's all MLS, EPL, USMNT, and Champions League. My access to that isn't changing and I'm not going to worry until it does. I have pretty much ignored Serie A and La Liga because there is only so much time in a day.

I believe the EPL is not shortsighted enough to sell out to the highest bidder if it's going to decrease exposure, in spite of the fact that the BeIn street-teamers here want to make it sound like a fait accompli. Even so, that possibility is a year away and I'm not going to worry about it now.
