how scottish football even gets any airtime is beyond me!?

Yep, as long as they keep showing the other leagues. SPL is boo!

FSC never had the rights to Serie A.
So NBC has EPL and MLS.

beIN owns the rights to Ligue 1, La Liga and Serie A.  GOL still owns the US broadcast rights for the Bundesliga, which means the games are unavailable on DirecTV.

Bake the Douche,  Foxsoccer extended their rights to show Serie A in 2010 up until 2012. Up until the end of last season Foxsoccer was showing Serie A. Always in a hurry tuh post like yuh know. Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Exclusive: Al Jazeera Sports Network Wins Serie A US TV Rights, Say Source

Posted on March 19, 2012 by The Gaffer

EXCLUSIVE: Al Jazeera Sports Network has won the US TV rights to Serie A, beginning with the 2012-13 season, according to a source.
 
The news comes hot on the heels of last week’s exclusive story by sister site La Liga Talk that Al Jazeera has also won the US TV rights to La Liga for seasons 2012-13 onwards. With La Liga and Serie A under their belt, Al Jazeera now owns rights to two of the top European soccer leagues that are aired on US television and the Internet.
 
FOX Soccer currently owns the US rights to Serie A, and will continue to broadcast Serie A games for the remainder of the season with commentators Christian Miles and Christopher Sullivan. When reached for a reaction to the news, a FOX Soccer spokesperson said ‘no comment.’
 
Questions surrounding how Al Jazeera Sports Network plans on broadcasting Serie A and La Liga games next season remain unanswered. Expect more details to be announced in the coming months.

For a woman... or whatever you are, pushing 50, you really ought to show a bit more maturity than childish name-calling... but perhaps you can't help your true nature.  That said... how does Fox own the US rights to Serie A when the 2012-2013 games are also being broadcast on GOL TV?  That of course indicates the absence of exclusive rights being held by either broadcaster... but don't let facts and rationality get in the way of your emotional flailing.

The US broadcast rights to Serie A has long been held by a company called MP & Silva, which then packaged and sold the games to GOL and Fox.  Starting next season, exclusive US rights to Serie A will be held by RAI... who will package and sell most games to other broadcasters here such as beIN and GOL.

I thought FCS had Serie A games that usually came on around 2ish, though I haven't watched FCS since last year.

JR they did broadcast games... as part of a non-exclusive deal with MP & Silva who holds the actual rights.

Douchebag I am not toting any feelings, but apparently you are, since you like to insert my name up in threads/discussions. We know you can't help yourself, because being on this forum, gives you the opportunity to act like you would, if you were walking around invisible. Carry on son  ;)

The bottom line is FSC has not shown SerieA matches after last season which is when they had the broadcasting rights to show the matches. Which is what the orignal question was about. Bein/Goltv now owns those rights and now shows those matches.

Massive coverage of the EPL on NBC
« Reply #43 on: July 30, 2013, 01:22:09 AM »

NBC is really committed to broadcasting soccer.  The upcoming schedule is simply incredible.

http://www.sbnation.com/2013/7/29/4568642/2013-14-nbc-epl-tv-schedule

NBC announces massive EPL schedule to open season


NBC, NBCSN and CNBC will combine to televise 69 games through Dec. 1.

Well, Premier League fans were promised coverage like they'd never seen before, and the NBC Sports Group appears to have delivered.

The network announced its EPL schedule through December 1 on Monday, and it features an impressive commitment to the league. NBC itself will air 10 matches live on Saturday afternoons, while NBC Sports Network (soon-to-be rebranded as NBCSN) will air 57 matches on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. CNBC will chip in with two additional Sunday matches, while Telemundo and mun2 will handle Spanish-language broadcasts of 27 matches.

NBC will also make every game available via TV Everywhere (the NBC Sports Live Extra App) and via a new package that works similar to the MLB Extra Innings or NFL Sunday Ticket packages. This is known as Premier League Extra Time. To date, AT&T U-Verse, Cablevision, Comcast, DIRECTV, DISH and Suddenlink have opted to carry the Extra Time package. Verizon hasn't agreed to carry Extra Time, but does grant access to the NBC Sports Live Extra app. 100 other partners have also opted in. If you'd like a definitive yes or no, perhaps leave the name of your provider in the comments and we'll get it sorted out.

The way things work is as follows: typically, NBCSN will air a game at 7:45 a.m. ET that has already been scheduled. At 10 a.m. ET, they will air a match that will be determined as the season goes along (a spokesman for NBC told me to expend the announcement of the first month soon). NBC will air 10 matches between now and Dec. 1 live at 12:30 p.m. ET. It is the largest-ever commitment to EPL (or really any soccer league) by a broadcast network in the United States.

Arlo White is the lead play-by-play man for the EPL on NBC. He'll call two matches per week with either Lee Dixon or Graham Le Saux. Rebecca Lowe hosts NBC's studio show for all Premier League coverage.

What follows is NBC's 69-game schedule of EPL matches through Dec. 1. Note that some matches are subject to change due to things like Europa League matches moving games back from Saturdays to Sundays, but most of the matches listed here are fairly set in stone.

I assume Flow, Greendot, Blink, DirecTV, etc are all ahead of the game by replacing FSC with NBCSN  :-\ By the way Fox Soccer Channel is shutting down and all of its programming is being absorbed into Fox Sports 1  :yellowcard: (a new channel which is starting up in a couple days)

I called FLOW today and asked about this

She said Sportsmax are launching Sportsmax 2 and they will replace Fox Soccer Plus in the Max Pack and Fox Soccer Plus will be added to the basic lineup (possibly becoming channel 78)

I guess Fox Soccer will naturally become Fox Sports 1


Hopefully Sportsmax 1 and 2 will be good enough because they are sketchy with quality

If Flow were smart they would bring NBC and all their sport channels and make one Football package ..also in HD

NBC is trying to take over a market that excludes Baseball and NFL.  They also outbid versus and some other channel for formula 1 racing.  They already show Division 2 college sports and "extreme" sports as well.  Taking out competitors Fox soccer, Cbs sports, versus, etc (American channels) I'm pretty sure this is going to be the first of many steps for NBC to try and become if not take over the number 1 sports market that ESPN is.

To be honest, I just want a station that showing only football. Not one where they fit in football matches and showing a bunch of other sports when there are matches they can show. ESPN shows one EPL match a week, no replays. The beauty about Foxsoccer is that it is football 24/7. Bein unlike Goltv shows football and other sports. Not interested, especially if none showing Bundasliga or football matches people who love the sport want to see.

This itself isn't new... Fox has been showing EPL games (live and re-broadcasts) on their regular network channel for at least the past three seasons in the 4 o'clock slot on Sundays.  The main difference here is that NBC is committing to showing one game each week on their network channel.  The rest of games will be on NBC Universal... a cable/satellite channel, and via online streaming.

Yeah Storebay, the NBC lineup looks great! European league football on a major network! Love to see the sport growing!! Glory, glory ManUtd!

This itself isn't new... Fox has been showing EPL games (live and re-broadcasts) on their regular network channel for at least the past three seasons in the 4 o'clock slot on Sundays.  The main difference here is that NBC is committing to showing one game each week on their network channel.  The rest of games will be on NBC Universal... a cable/satellite channel, and via online streaming.

That's been a very infrequent occurrence on Fox, and certainly not weekly; and if you understood the main difference between your point and mine then why even comment? Don't be contrarian just for the sake of it.

But you haven't clarified anything. If anything, you've misinformed since Fox was very infrequently (and only recently at all) airing EPL matches on the main network.
