    Fox to Broadcast CL Final on a Saturday Afternoon

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/spor...-air-live.html

    For the first time, a U.S. network will broadcast this year's European Champions League final.

    Fox, which airs Champions League matches on its cable channel, Fox Soccer Channel, will televise the Champions League final live from Madrid on May 22. The game was originally scheduled to air on another Fox-owned cable channel, FX.

    Fox is in the first year of a three-year deal to broadcast Champions League matches
    Big step for soccer in the US as anyone has acess to the match. Cant wait to see the number as it is on a Saturday afternoon this year.

    Wait so, it's gonna be on Fox Fox? Not Fox Soccer Channel? If so, this is amazing. Can't wait for to hear Joe Buck and Troy Aikmen do this game.

    and person above me: The tournament is currently in the first knock out round. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009%E2...knockout_stage

    Nice! HD hopefully. FSC compresses their signal to almost being unwatchable.

    On a Saturday afternoon? That's awesome. The Wednesday at 3pm kickoff time was always a killer. This is really great news for soccer fans in the US.

    Do you get FSC in HD?

    During some matches (usually Premier League), it says FSC HD up in the corner, and the picture looks slightly clearer, but it's not full screen and definitely not in HD. I have Cablevision, so I'm wondering if they will start carrying an FSC HD channel.

    Is Fox also broadcasting the WC? Maybe trying to get people interested before the big stage?

    In any case, good for news for soccer in the US.

    No, I don't get FSC in HD. I thought I read something awhile back that Fox/FSC was taking over some Setanta games, and would start broadcasting in HD.

    I haven't kept up with the goings on, but this looks set to start March 1st:

    Now...if they would just pony up the cash and sign Ray Hudson to call the games!

    ESPN/ESPN2/ESPN Classic are broadcasting all the matches except USA/England and the third place game/finals. The only way that changes is if USA gets into the semifnals.
