Dish carries sentena which I believe will morf into fox soccer plus
I really hope they don't keep it as a separate $15/month channel, it would make more sense in the regular sports pack...
What channel #? I have the top package and I don't see it.
"Launched" as in "BBC-A HD launched" or "TCM-HD launched" or "RFD-HD launched" or.......; i.e. available but Dish doesn't carry it. Frankly, I'm not even sure FSC-HD is available right now, but makes no difference. Dish doesn't carry it.
From what I read yesterday, FSC Plus will be HD and probably premium, and FSC will turn into FSC HD. Both are supposedly going to be HD, but Plus will be premium.
It turns out that according to several good sources, "Fox Soccer Plus" IS Fox Soccer's HD channel.
My guess is that they planned to launch in HD on January 1st, but like BBC America and TCM, they could not find anyone to carry it.
So, they are going to make a premium channel, in HD, with the EPL and Champions League matches that they would otherwise have sold to Setanta, starting March 1st. The combination of unique content and HD will allow providers to charge extra, and that will enable them to get on systems where HD versions of existing channels cannot.
Here is the official press release - note "exclusive" and "high definition":
Thus Fox Soccer Channel will not be "in the world of HD" before March 1 and they will only be doing so by launching FSC Plus.*Fox Soccer Channel is expanding into the world of HD! Introducing FSC Plus, which is scheduled to launch March 1.
