Found 7th Jul 2009
ESPN has announced it will launch a new channel next month to show the Premier League matches whose rights it bought following the collapse of pay-TV firm Setanta.

ESPN will be available on a premium subscription basis to all Sky homes, which means all live Barclays Premier League matches will be available in HD to Sky homes.

Sky has confirmed that Sky Sports subscribers will be able to get ESPN for £9 per month while other Sky customers will be able to subscribe from £12 per month.

Sky Sports will produce its football games, but the coverage will use dedicated ESPN graphics and analysis.

Why not?

Isn't the attraction of watching birmingham, wolves, burnley, stoke, wigan worth every penny?
