EPL Talk at related • 1 view

Now that the Group Stage of the UEFA Champions League is over until the Knockout Round kicks off in February, it's perfect timing to give a report card for FOX's new soccer TV experience called MultiMatch 90, which was quietly debutedin September.

The concept of MultiMatch 90 is to mimic a similar experience that NFL fans enjoy with the RedZone channel where instead of broadcasting one live UEFA Champions League game, FOX Sports offers a broadcast that jumps around from live game to game when anything exciting or of note happens such as goals, free kicks, red cards, etcetera.
