    Acording to, the free radio link is no longer free... it is now part of and is available in either monthly or yearly subscription. The prices are not high, but jeez, for all the overseas supporters who don't have access to other live feeds this really cuts down on the feel and the excitment of listening.

    I guess it's time to pony up some extra "pounds" (who needs that new black away kit anyway!!)

    Well that's too bad...and with most of Man Utd's matches on PPV, I have to pay now whether I watch or listen!

    I don't begrudge them, though...if there's money to be made, have at it...just make sure you buy some good players with the cash!

    It looks like it's ₤25 a year. That's about $42. Not exactly cheap.

    Damn! I loved the Man U radio. It was great when I had to be at school, but I had a couple of breaks inbetween classes that coincided with the games. go to the computer lab, listen to the game, go to next class.

    oh well..

    Prior to the start of Champions League, you could subscribe to for the equivalent of 20 pounds a year as compared to 25 now. I didn't but that's what their website said you could do. Granted that you may not be allowed to subscribe if you don't live in the UK or Ireland because of licensing issues (I think Sky can only offer subscriptions to EPL highlights in those countries). Does any American on this board subscribe?

    I subscribe to I began my subscription mainly because the big pub in the area is pro-Chelsea and they, in turn, will show Chelsea over United on Champion's League or Carling Cup matchdays. I think its worth the six and a half bucks a month to subscribe because, in addition to the radio commentary, there is a lot of exclusive content (player interviews, press conferences, etc.) and video match highlights. I find that I don't watch the match highlights as much now that I have's Action package. If you don't know what that is, check it out. Its absolutely brilliant.

    And even worse in Australia. I don't know what the exchange rate is from British pounds to $AUD, but that looks like it's close to $70 US, based on what I know about the exchange rate ($US --> $AUD).

    But still, I'll pony up the dough, as it's well worth it.
