Barclays Premier League fans will see their club in action every week this season as FOX SPORTS maintains its commitment to broadcasting every match of the world’s most watched football league, with no ad breaks during live play.
It all begins this weekend, when viewers will have access to full coverage of every match in the opening round of the season.
FOX SPORTS CEO Patrick Delany said the Barclays Premier League offering on FOX SPORTS in Australia is superior to UK coverage of the competition.
“FOX SPORTS coverage delivers all the excitement of match day, everything that you can experience at the game, direct to your living room or favourite venue,” said Mr Delany.
“It can’t be overstated how significant this offering is for Premier League fans in Australia. In the UK they simply don’t offer LIVE coverage of up to ten matches every weekend.”
“FOX SPORTS is giving fans the opportunity to see every match. They will not miss one of their club’s matches all season and will be able to watch a majority of those live, and all of them in high definition.”
As well as providing broadcast coverage of all 380 matches this season, FOX SPORTS will also carry the most comprehensive online coverage of the premiership.
Foxsports.com.au will offer up to four matches from each round LIVE, with up to five matches per round also available ‘on demand’ through its Premier League On Demand service exclusive to FOX SPORTS in Australia.
The FOX SPORTS website will also feature LIVE scoring on each of the season’s 380 matches, plus a range of exclusive video content including highlights packages from each game and themed video packages including goals of the week.
The season explodes into action this Saturday night at 11.55pm AEST when fans will be able to choose from five LIVE matches via the red button on FOX SPORTS 2HD & FOX SPORTS 2, including Tim Cahill’s Everton in their season-opening clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
Once again the Hyundai Matchday Saturday team of Adam Peacock, Mark Bosnich, and Robbie Slater will be in studio to preview and review the action each weekend, while FOX SPORTS will also have a presence on the ground in the UK with a dedicated reporter at all key matches.
FOX SPORTS coverage of the Barclays Premier League extends beyond the match coverage, with additional weekly programming to feature throughout the season including one hour of weekly highlights on the Barclays Premier League Highlights Show, plus the award-winning British football variety show, Soccer AM, each Sunday.
FOX SPORTS coverage of the Barclays Premier League is available in high definition and ad-break free during play for FOXTEL and AUSTAR subscribers.
