Watching Saturday’s games in the Premier League, there’s no doubt that we’re spoilt for choice. Every single Premier League match was available for us to watch live thanks to a combination of Fox Soccer Channel, ESPN2, Fox Soccer Plus and FoxSoccer.tv. Cristiano Ronaldo fans could also watch Real Madrid on Fox.
And knowing that we would be on an international break for the next two weeks, I consumed as much Premier League football as my body could take – made all the more exciting by my football spread betting
But as I was watching it, I wondered whether I was enjoying it the best way that I could. The early kick-off between Blackburn Rovers and Arsenal was a cinch. No other games were played at the same time, so I was able to sit down and watch the game in HD with few distractions.
But the rest of the weekend was a blur. For the 10am ET kickoffs, I ended up watching Tottenham against Wigan on TV, and then watched Wolves against Newcastle at the same time on my laptop, where I was streaming Wolves against Newcastle. At half-time, thanks to the DVR functionality on FoxSoccer.tv, I was able to catch up on what I missed from the first half of the Chelsea against Stoke and Blackpool versus Fulham games.
Then for the second half, I ended up watching Blackpool against Fulham on FoxSoccer.tv, while Spurs against Wigan was on in the background. When the full-time whistle blew at Bloomfield Road, I clicked around on FoxSoccer.tv and was able to watch the match highlights for Chelsea against Stoke and Wolves against Newcastle (I just love the ‘Match Highlights’ feature at half-time and at the end of the second half on FoxSoccer.tv).
