Local sports to break into North American market

Fox Soccer Channel and the International Media Content Limited (IMC), the parent company of SportsMax, yesterday announced the signing of an agreement which gives SportsMax the broadcast and distribution rights in Jamaica for the rebranded Fox Soccer Channel Jamaica, effective October 1, 2006.

The agreement gives SportsMax the right to place local and regional content and commercial inventory on Fox Soccer Channel Jamaica, as well as for SportsMax to market and distribute Fox Soccer Channel Jamaica to cable operators via SportsMax's satellite network.

"... This is both a unique and historical occasion," remarked the Hon Pat Rousseau, OJ, chairman of SportsMax Limited.
"This is the classical case of the whales not swallowing the minnows, but joining the minnows. We are a very small, new company and Fox Soccer Channel is part of a very big and powerful organisation and I think the alliance means a lot to both of us," he added.

"We both feel there are benefits to be gained," he said, eyeing the prospects of SportsMax placing Caribbean sports on the Fox Soccer Channel network in North America.
"This is a huge advantage and this is something we look forward to exploiting in the very near future."

The agreement also includes SportsMax developing local and regional programming on Fox Soccer Channel Jamaica, with the prospect for broadcast on Fox Soccer Channel in the USA and Canada.

SportsMax Limited has up to four hours per day to place regional and local content on Fox Soccer Channel Jamaica, after both parties agree on the local and regional programming to be broadcast.

IMC will still operate its SportsMax channel and will offer the two channels via subscriptions through cable operators islandwide for a monthly subscription fee, which was not disclosed.

Oliver McIntosh, president and CEO of SportsMax Limited, explained that the decision to offer the channels via a subscription package is in line with other top international sports channels, such as Sky Sports in the UK, Super Sport in South Africa and Ten Sport in Asia.

"Channels like ours are less dependent on the advertising market," he said. "Subscription revenues will allow SportsMax to continue to provide a high quality and quantity of international, regional and local sports and to develop sports content for broadcast into North America."

It is expected that the gross television audience will grow from 600,000 to more than 25 million cable and satellite households in the US and the Caribbean.

And Veronica Alvarez, director, marketing and communication at Fox Soccer Channel, said she believes that the Fox Soccer Channel Jamaica will be the destination for sports for the Caribbean.

"By double teaming with IMC and SportsMax, together we create a localised version of Fox Soccer Channel tailor-made for Jamaican fans," she said.

"Thanks to IMC, Jamaican television audience will get top quality programming ... and the North American market will learn more about the Jamaican game and its contribution to the world's game."

Aside from the English Premiership and the FA Cup, Fox Soccer Channel Jamaica will broadcast Italian Serie A, the Argentine League, CONCACAF Champions Cup, the USA's Major League Soccer, as well as daily Sky Sports News and Fox Sports World Report.

SportsMax currently broad-casts to 17 countries in the Caribbean and has exclusive rights for programmes such as the overseas West Indies cricket tours, the Ashes Series between Australia and England, EURO 2008 qualifiers, the South American Copa America and the IAAF Grand Prix.

Don't shoot the messenger. :) :)

Nah, I think that is good news for the Caribbean as a whole  :beermug: maybe the PFL could get a little space on FSCJA in the future...more exposure for everybody.

Big Up!

I will send you some Ackee and Saltfish one of these days. The stuff is available in every supermarket here in teh USA. When next you go to your local supermarket head straight for the section that is labelled "Jamaican food"... you might change your name from Dutty to another Jamaica name "Ackee"  ;D

pardna...ah not saying this on a hater scene...but ackee is not a thing to be bragging bout :-\ . And you could find saltfish plenty places outside of Jamaica. It not even half as 'west indian' as you think it is.

And we done tell you that the word "dutty" is no jamaica thing. I hearing that word since i know mihself, be it in TNT or Grenada. The only people in the english speaking caribbean that must be doh use that word is the Bajans, proper as they feel they is.
In the same way west indians does say tutty for thirty and tusty for thirsty and dut for dirt, we does say dutty for dirty. I ent see what yuh point is. Reggae and jerk chicken is alyuh thing, but doh try and claim every west indian thing for jamaica...since we lend alyuh we caribbean cup once or twice yuh putting on airs...doh study it, we taking back we property just now  :devil:

Bragging? where did I brag about anything? Seems your mind is playing tricks on you. I'll send you a meal of Ackee and saltfish too. Let me know if you like it with roast bredfruit or dumplings  ;D

"Dutty" is not "Jamaican".... Thing is, I have never heard the word used in any context by a Trini, particularly on this message board. Its a regular part of JAmaican dialect. So pardon my ignorance for believing the individual "Dutty" was a Jamaican wanna bee. Although he might still be  ;D. Actually, we use the caribbean cup to test our local based players and players looing to break into the senior team. How many of those Caribbean titles did you win outside of T&T? And have you won any in Jamaica? I believe we have won it in your back yards!

T&T won the Caribbean Cup away in:- Barbados (89), Jamaica (95) and Antigua (97). Biggest win in 1997 (T&T 4 v Jamaica 2).

Jamaica won it in 1998, both T&T and Jamaica played co-host that year. However, I think the final was played in T&T, not 100% sure.

Martinique won it in Jamaica in 1993.

You have hosted the Caribbean cup finals on more occasions than any other caribbean nation. Is it any surprise then that you have won the tourney more than anyone else?

I really cant recall the last time that thing was ever hosted in Jamaica.

T&T hosted the Caribbean Cup in; 1992, 1994, 1996, 1998 (co-host with Jamaica), 1999 & 2001.

Jamaica hosted the Caribbean Cup in; 1991, 1993, 1995 & 1998 (co-host with T&T).

Bear in mind we also have the facility to host such events.
