ESPN Sports Channel UK


June 26, 2009

The satellite broadcaster ESPN has recently acquired some of the rights to the Premier League football matches from the collapse of the satellite channel Setanta UK.

The Disney owned ESPN intends to set up an all new sports channel to cater for sport relevant to the UK.

ESPN has already come to an agreement with satellite broadcaster Sky to carry the channel, although it is not going to be included in with Sky Sports.

It is believed that the cost of the new ESPN sports channel will be around £10 per month on satellite.

The channel is still in talks with other broadcasters.

The cost is expected to be unified across the board, unless the broadcasters decide to run an offer or possibly a deal to encourage new customers to subscribe to the service.

    ESPN, please don’t put all your eggs in one satalite channel, the UK needs a stand alone channel, also any USPGA golf coming along that was really outstanding on Setanta hope you can follow. I would certainly subscribe.
