While NBC Sports debuts its Premier League coverage this Saturday, FOX Sports 1 launches on the same day with a schedule of NASCAR and UFC. However, unless any last minute deals can be finalized, the much hyped network won't be carried by DirecTV, DISH Network, Time Warner Cable or Bright House Networks on opening day.
There are only 32 days until the launch of FOX Sports 1, the new nationwide sports network that will battle for TV ratings and advertising dollars against ESPN. In the past several weeks, the number of TV spots FOX has been running to promote the network has been increasing at a feverish rate. However, FOX Sports is still trying to find its way on to the major TV providers in the United States.
The U.S. men's national team's path to Brazil 2014 continues Friday night with the first of two
World Cup qualifying matches against Jamaica in a five-day span.

beIN Sport, a network that is being carried on Dish Network and DirecTV and has begun to be rolled
out by Comcast in different markets around the country (call your local provider for the latest
information leading up to first kick).

With less than 90 days to go before NBC Sports begins televising the Premier League on US television, the number of TV providers who will providing access to every single Premier League match next season still only numbers five. They are Comcast xFinity TV, DISH Network, Verizon FIOS, Suddenlink and Cablevision — all of whom will be providing access to NBC Sports Live Extra as well as NBC Sports Network, etc.
Great news for soccer fans in the US. DISH Network has agreed a deal with NBC Sports to provide its subscribers with access to NBC Sports Live Extra.
That means that when the next Premier League season begins on August 17, 2013, DISH Network subscribers who subscribe to NBC Sports Network will have also have access to every single Premier League match shown live on the web, mobile and tablet devices via the NBC Sports Live Extra app.
If you've been looking for La Liga or Serie A programming on GolTV or Fox Soccer Channel, you've
been out of luck. Upstart Al Jazeera owned network beINSport has obtained the U.S. broadcast rights
The problem is beINSport is only available in the U.S.on DirecTV and Dish Network. Needless to
say this has provoked much consternation among U.
The new seasons in England and Spain get underway this weekend, with full slates of action
featuring some of the top teams in the world. Manchester United's campaign doesn't start until
Monday, but Manchester City kicks off its title defense against Premier League newcomer Southampton
a week after defeating Chelsea to win the Community Shield.
Saturday EPL on ESPN: Arsenal - Sunderland at 10am. On Fox Soccer: WBA - Liverpool at 9:30am,
Newcastle - Spurs at 12pm, West Ham - Aston Villa at 2:30pm, and Reading - Stoke City at 4:30pm.

Chelsea make the move from Seattle to the Apple for the second match of their preseason tour of
the United States. Some wealthy Parisians await. This should be pretty good for a meaningless,
insignificant friendly, I reckon.
And so it goes, as per the schedule, that we are to do battle once more with Liverpool. In
fairness, I could do without this routine of exercises, particularly after our weekend triumph. But
the schedule is what it is, and we have a trip to Anfield on the books. So lets make the most of
this then, and at rub some additional salt in those wounds.
Obviously, I have a bone to pick with this lot. For it was on their turf that our season began
its endless spiral into darkness- before Roberto strode in and saved the day. Needless to say,
Sunday is all about redemption- nay, revenge. Coming off the heels of our impressive Barcelona
victory, ahead of a critical showdown with Newcastle in midweek, this match is all about setting
the record straight.
Spurs haven't been to an FA Cup final since 1991, when they won the trophy via a 2-1 win over
Nottingham Forest. It would be most agreeable and most enjoyable if we were able to extend that
barren run a year longer by making our fourth final appearance in six years.
Chelsea, you know, rather enjoy these 21st century days out at New Wembley.
Benfica are talking a lot of nonsense. Chelsea lie in wait, uncharacteristically quiet. What
promises to be an edgy affair tomorrow will be tempered by the result of today's Barcelona Milan
encounter. Before we can look ahead, however, we still have plenty of work ahead. It will be
physical, and ultimately, it will come down to goals scored.
Following up on yesterday's launch on DirecTV, the new 24/7 international soccer network beIN SPORT
is now also available on DISH Network. beIN SPORT is available as a free preview today through
September 11 on channel 408. While beIN SPORT ...
Ben Franklin's town welcomes Chelsea this evening as the club's preseason tour of the states
continues with the MLS All-Star Game at PPL Park. There will be no Fernando Torres unfortunately,
but at least we'll be blessed with the flowing grace of one David Beckham. Score.
Ah, the final day of the Premier League season. Chelsea in recent years have become used to
having a massive say at the last, but not this term. A season that has produced little inspiration
from a league perspective will end with little well, nothing to play for.
Dead rubber this match with relegated Blackburn is.
Since our last encounter with Barcelona, our clubs have headed in very different directions.
Theirs, has been on the ascendancy for what seems like four years running. Ours, has seen its fair
share of ups and downs along the way. But our paths cross once again, in a semi-final tie no less-
which ultimately presents yet another shot at redemption for a Chelsea side that's desperate to set
the record straight.
It's Derby Day! The only scheduled meeting between the Dynamo and FC Dallas is tonight in
Houston and in all likely hood this will decide to gets to keep El Capitan next season. Plus that
little thing called bragging rights.
Today's match for the Dynamo is all about adjustment and survival. Jermaine Taylor, Geoff
Cameron, Je-Vaughn Watson and Andre Hainault are all away on international duty. Will Bruin
(concussion), Alex Dixon (concussion), Kofi Sarkodie (foot sprain) are all our injured. So needless
to say, the lineup could look a bit different today.
It's here at last! The inaugural MLS match at the Dynamo's new home, BBVA Compass Stadium! I'm
guessing most of the usual suspects that discuss matches here will be at the stadium, but for
anyone not able to be in attendance, this thread's for you.

No filter, all you need to know before we begin our pre-season preparations in earnest, against
the mighty Sounders. More, after the jump.
CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE.
Right, now that we're past the obvious, we've got work to do. Amidst the celebrations this
summer, Chelsea have set out on a course to reshape the squad through a series of transactions, the
majority of which remain pending.
