NEW YORK and ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ — Just in time for the English Premiership season opener and the Rugby World Cup 2007, Setanta Sports, the leading sports broadcasting network dedicated to international soccer and rugby, and EchoStar Communications Corporation’s DISH Network(TM) today announced the launch of Setanta on DISH Network to subscribers across America for the first time. Currently in high demand, Setanta Sports brings quality and depth of programming to global sports fans nationwide through 24-hour access to more than 1,000 live events, including UK and European soccer, as well as world-class rugby and other sports programming.
Airing seven days per week, 24 hours per day, Setanta Sports is available to DISH Network customers for $14.99 per month, and to business subscribers starting at $100 per month.
You can preview it for free until September 9th, 2007. I love watching soccer, but I’m not sure the family budget can handle another $15/mon just for soccer. But for those of you desperate for it… The good news is it’ll make soccer games more accessible in bars that subscribe to DISH – so that’s good.
