yeah mls is hardly on tv. occasionally fox soocer or one of the espn channels channel will cover a game, but it's rare.

i dont even watch mls, and i probably wouldnt even if it was televised frequently. europe>>>>>>

If you have the MLS package for FoxSoccer channel that's offered by DirecTV then I believe there's a round up show similar to MOTD.

That package is like 80 bucks though....absolutely ridiculous for a league that is improving, but still well off the pace.

Then again, I won't even pay that price for the best football on TV.

I have Fox Soccer Channel and GolTV through Comcast and I don't recall ever seeing a MOTD. I don't see many MLS games though, but they do show some of the high profile games such as LA vs NY most recently.

I am satisfied with Fox Soccer channel and GolTV because I get EPL, Serie A from FSC and La Liga through GolTV. Also FSC covers the champions league and shows highlights of european football every night, so i can't complain Cool

Cheers guys.

I am finalising my report for soccer promotion in US..and one of the ideas is a 60 minute show every week on ESPN like MOTD of MLS.


some obstacles there of course that how much ESPN has to pay for rights to those highlights...any estimates ?

I'm paying for this. It's the Comcast Sports Package I believe. I had to call and have them activate it as it definitely doesn't come default with Xfinity.

The show you're talking about is called Fox Soccer Report. It shows the highlights from games all around the world. There is one guy on there named Bobby McMahon who really knows his football. The rest of the cast really doesn't know shit and it makes me mad, but whatever. I don't get mad that they don't know, but they act like they do and its so embarrassing. Other than that, it's a good show.

My country doesn't give a shit about football Sad However, I have gotten many of my friends into european football and now they love it. There are those who talk badly about it here but they are dead to me, and they can *bleep* off. I have gotten into many arguments over sports with people here Evil or Very Mad It's frustrating being a huge fan of the game where people don't take it seriously

I like the idea but ESPN will never cough up a full hour for MLS

Half our at most on one of the smaller channels (ESPN2/ESPNEWS) is a more realistic proposition

That would be cool to see ESPN because we don't have to pay extra $$ for it, but I am not too sure how many would watch it. The fact that you have to pay extra $$ monthly here to get "soccer" channels shows you the general interest levels. Americans watching ESPN would not really care to watch it and would probably change the channel. They would rather watch people in helmets running into each other and a tub of lard hit a baseball out of the park.

I love the US but there are aspects of it I hate, like when a 400 pound fatass is considered more of an athlete than any MLS player. The salaries itself reflect that. Here's an interesting site for the salary reference: http://topcultured.com/futbol-vs-football/

Varies extremely from region to region

Here at school I get basically the same cable+internet package my parents do at home (but from a different provider)

Me and my two roommates pay $45 a month TOTAL (15 per person)
My parents pay over $100

We get Fox Soccer and Cinemax, ESPNU, ESPN Classic.....They don't

Im sure there are some channels they get that we don't....but not any that I watch

I'll go and say almost all cable packages in the U.S get you ESPN, ESPN2, and increasingly ESPNEWS....the rest are a crapshoot

ESPN shows a match a week during the regular season, and just about every game during the play-offs; however, they're all on ESPN2 and subject to random preempting by more "important" sports like the Little League World Series.

Honestly, I'd settle for regular coverage (that last more than 30 seconds) on SportsCenter. That seems to be biggest thing holding back MLS, in my honest opinion.

They always pass MLS (Galaxy in L.A) on ESPN.

The Spanish channels pass more MLS than ESPN though.

And I have a Spanish Package so that means no ESPN in English or FSC for me. Sad

At least ESPN Deportes will broadcast all the MLS playoffs so I'm happy.

ESPN are absolute douches when it comes to football. It doesn't even upset me anymore. I'm completely numb to it now.

Even when it does get its 30 seconds of fame, the sportscasters have absolutely no idea what they're talking about.

I really don't see why they don't just make a spinoff of Soccernet Presspass with guys like John Harkes (though I think he's a shite pundit), JP Dellacamera, Rob Stone, and Alexi Lalas...I think that would be pretty awesome for MLS.

No we dont have anything like that. ESPN will show 1 premier league game per week on saturday morning and typically you can catch about 1 MLS game per week but as oranje said, it can be interrupted. I dont watch MLS anyway. Even when i know its on. If you want decent football in the states then be prepared to give out mucho dinero

Shit, that's like the only thing that scares me if I ever move to the States. No football channels.

How do you guys watch your football, through streams?

But you're never getting Sky-type total coverage, I imagine. Just a few extra channels and I can imagine most of the Latin American ones.

Yeah, I'm from Maracaibo, why?

ESPN3 Shows a good amount of games; FSC will show usually Serie A/BPL games Sat/Sun morning. ESPN will hardly ever pick up games on the weekend unless it's on ESPN 2 because they have to start covering American Football 4 hours before kickoff for whatever reason


I had DirecTV in college, and they were awesome for Champions League... You could watch any of the games for group stages and I think for knockouts too. That was a pretty sweet deal


I only have FSC/ESPN for games now.... but living in the west is hard, as the games are on so, so early. I watched Chelsea-Arsenal last weekend recorded on ESPN2 because it was on at 5:30AM.. not getting up that early on my weekend

MLS will only improve with support. Don't be a snob.
