In America most of us think of soccer as that game kids play, and moms go to watch. Well, at least that use to be the case, as interest in the game the rest of the world calls football is rising.
Now U.S. fans of the English Barclay’s Premier League will be able to tune in to catch the long matches with low scores on their mobile handsets. This newly signed deal gives the Fox Soccer Channel exclusive coverage for U.S. mobile and Internet highlight rights, as well as the capability to stream live matches for the next three seasons. The mobile package also includes highlights of all BPL matches, along with a weekend roundup.
