Discussion in 'Manchester United' started by xfactor857, Oct 27, 2004.
It seems most, if not all, of games this year has been on FSW PPV or Close-circuited TV.
FSW will show any 7:30 or 12:00 (Eastern) Saturday kickoff live, and most likely any midweek Man U game live as well.
Games at 10:00 Saturday or 11:00 Sunday are on PPV and closed circuit.
Oh yeah? On what authority do you have that info? I know I've paid the $19.95 for a Saturday 7:30AM Man Utd match because it wasn't on FSW...
Um, yeah. Exactly. On what authority do I have that info? Check the FSW schedule for every EPL Saturday this season starting in August up to however long they go out. Tell me how many 7:30 games have aired on FSW, and how many have aired on PPV. If you want to save time the answers are all and none respectively.
Maybe this happened in past years, but not this year.
Well the match two weeks ago vs Birmingham at 7:30 am et/6:30am ct was on FSW. There have been a couple this season that have been on FSW.
I think United have been televised more than last year, just less than two years ago...when...err...the 6:30am game might as well be called "The Manchester United show." Part of that was the incredible run that allowed United to catch up with Arsenal, but they were televising United every week before that happened.
*shrug* - not really in FSW's control.
According to my cable guide, this weekend's Manchester United game will be on FSW Saturday
How is that? I don't understand, since the rest of the world gets to watch the games without payperview.
Your cable guide really says that? Because FoxSportsWorld has the match listed under "Soccer on PPV/CCTV."
I was under the impression that FSW has a limited package. They always get certain game "slots," but don't actually get to pick which teams play. I would guess Sky would determine that.
You could always email them...
Yes and no. Yes, they (well their parent company) made the decision to give the 10:00 Saturday and 11:00 Sunday to PPV. So in that sense it was. Given that, they don't control scheduling. I'm not sure how much choice they have in showing the delayed Saturday game, if they can choose whichever game they want or if they have to take what's given to them.
Interesting decision they made - it certainly paid off for the MU:Arse PPV. Oh well, I suppose Arse and Chelsea fans can look forward to the same as their bandwagons grow.
If FSW keeps showing me the bottom and mid-table teams matchups only, forget it... I don't care how soccer-starved I get, watching Norwich:Citeh will never be attractive.
To the radio!
fsw shows the live sky games during the 10am/11am time slot on sat/sun. that is part of the contract they have w/ the epl to show games in the us. arsenal, chelsea, manu are going to feature in that time slot, therefore a lot of the games will be ppv or sattelite in the pubs.
that has to do w/ fsw putting up a lot of money for the fa cup and england internationals. to recoup this money they farmed out the live main sky matches on sat/sun to...Setanta who are a ppv company, thus the fee at the pubs for the matches.
plenty of games have been shown in the 7:30 slot-arsenal v bolton, chelsea v. villa (?) are a couple I can remember from this season. Unless Arsenal are playing, I don't get out of bed for them, my choice.
the live 12.00pm match is a new one this season, I think.
Looks like we are again screwed by FSW's programming decisions for the wonderful destruction of Siddy this weekend...
Haven - I think we're seeing less of United this season than we have since before FSW came around lol. We just can't get a game on the TV!
If I am not mistaken, the Manchester United - Fulham match is gonna be on FSW on Monday, Dec 13th. I would assume there is at least one more on FSW before then, but I know the Fulham match is on TV that day for free.
I just got the soccertv update and the Manchester United - Charlton game on the 20th of November is on at 6:30AM CST Live on FSW.
Our one game per six weeks, I guess...
Wait till after FEB 1
ARS vs MAN U
This game will be on FSW
Good to know - thanks
hip hip hooray...hip hip hooray...
How does one go about ordering the PPV games? I was unaware of them until I read this thread. I looked on FSW's website and sure enough, there are two games each weekend listed as PPV/CCT (in addition to the usual 2 or 3 on Sat).
Any COmcast subscribers out there? If so, can we get the games? Do I just call Comcast when the game starts and order it? any info would be appreciated. If not, I'll call Comcast this weekend and see what the deal is
