    Do you have Comcast Digital cable? I believe that in Boston you can pay an extra $5 a month to get their sports tier package with GOLtv and FSC.

    Do you think there are only 2 channels on TV in America? ESPN2 and the local ethnic channel that give you 1 serie A tape delay?

    Where is your

    - Fox Soccer Channel (Premiership, Bundesliga, la Championnat, World Cup quals, FA Cup, etc.)?
    - GolTV (Serie A, la Liga, UEFA Cup, South American WCQ, league games all over Latin America)?
    - Fox Sports en Espanol (league games of Brazil/Argentina/Mexico, Copa Libertadores)?
    - Setanta Sports USA (Champions League, Nationwide league, SPL, Bundesliga, World Cup quals)?

    These are all TV channels one can easily get in America. There is an outrageous number of soccer games on American TV that no one can humanly watch all of them...

    Two words:

    Bittorrent, Coolstreaming.

    Coolstreaming has been shutdown so go to pplive.com and download it in the top-right corner I think.

    Or you can go to asiaplate.com and download pplive from there (they have instructions in English) or go to either livetv and watch the links they have there.

    Your best bet for Serie A and Internationals is Chinese CCTV5 (up to 800k connection= almost TV quality). It should hold up well b/c I watched the entire Confederations Cup at work with minimal slowdowns or interuptions.

    Now that I helped you maybe you can help me in the Press Pass thread a few spaces down.

    Idiot. Which would be okay if you had a non-critical attitude, which apparently you do not. Most cable systems do not carry anywhere all of those channels.

    And who's stopping you from getting DirecTV or Dish Network?

    If you have to rely on your cable system, which you obviously have to, I suggest you follow baseball. You do NOT deserve to watch the beautiful European game here in this country.

    This is exactly the rotten attitude that I bash here: if it's not on my cable system, then it's not on TV. Grow up. The TV mainstream here does not evolve around your interest. If you want to follow niche contents, which European soccer certainly is, then you have to take the extra step, or watch baseball.

    For the last 2 years I lived in places that didn't allow you to put in satellites--i.e., high rise apartments. Don't be so smug and snobbish, dude. Not sure what your angle is. Saying people don't DESERVE to watch a sport? The thread is about internet availability of games in any case, so take the general commentary about which fans should be allowed to watch the game elsewhere. Capiche?

    Well, you choose to live in a place that doesn't allow DBS, that's YOUR problem. Did someone put a gun in your head to force you to live in a highrise? or are you in a highrise jail?

    Why not? you whiners are really something. You are not willing to take the extra step to get this niche content, and you want mainstream America to follow this niche content (to make it mainstream) just because you are not willing to take this extra step. Who has a problem here?

    Yep. Watching European soccer on TV here is not your birthright. This is a country of American football, baseball and basketball. If you don't go the extra step to get these niche channels, why do you think you deserve to watch the Euro leagues?

    I guess if I were a better soccer fan, I'd rotate the Earth so that my apartment would have a south-facing window.

    I haven't been able to access it but it would be useful to have ESPN Asia b/c that is the only channel that PPlive doesn't regularly carry.
