Re: beIn Sport 1 & 2 (new soccer channels)
said by donjuan2002: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.
Also BEIn bought the rights for the USA soccer team games, non will be on regular tv anymore.
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.
