Wink football on cable

Hiya

I've a question that will hopefully be simple for someone. Having just moved into a new house the wife is keen to get cable (something about wanting to watch "the Apprentice").
My only desire is to get football from the U.K. Seeing as I'm fresh off the boat, could someone tell me which channels screen live Premiership and FA Cup games?

Thanks in advance

**** cable mate.

Get a satelitte dish, pay $10 a month extra for the Fox sports pack.
with it comes all manner of irrelevant sports channels, and the one you need. Fox sports world. With this you're good to go.

Cable is for pussies, you need a Jodrell Bank thing strapped to your house like a real man.

You should be able to get Fox Sports World through your cable company. FSW usually show the Saturday lunchtime English Premier League game live and have delayed transmission of some of the weekend's other matches. They show the odd FA Cup game live too.

Here's their website:

I believe that the PPV stuff is only available on satellite.

They show Sky Sports news every day and have a weekly 1hr EPL review show. Their nightly Report show is usually worth watching.

I get all the fox sports channels on our digital cable package. The only reason I'd switch over to the dish, is to get NFL season ticket. I can get the season pass for all the other damn sports, just not the NFL

Fox Sports World is indeed the way to go for football. If your cable company has InDemand pay per view you will also be able to get Premiership live games on that too.

Don't go with satellite, cable is by far the better option, most cable companies have bundled packages where you can get High Speed Internet included for a substantial discount.

We can't get FSW on cable here in Florida, we have to have the dish. We would rather have cable, but my husband would go totally mad if he didn't get his fix of English football. He also listens to his team playing live evey Saturday on the internet. Keeps him happy!
