It looks like Dish MIGHT be getting ready to announce something. On Wednesday's uplink, they identified an HD Temp channel with a mapdown to the same channel as Fox Soccer Channel (149).... but nothing official yet. (Report and discussion found here)
Setanta will lose all rights to EPL and Uefa Champions League games starting March 1st. They were currently sub licensed from FSC. Fox will Launch a premium channel called Fox Soccer Plus on March 1st in HD. They are trying to aquire Setanta U.S as it is suffering financial difficulties and pretty much can not survive without the EPL. Whether or not Fox buys it or not they will still launch Fox Soccer Plus on March 1st.
All credit goes to epltalk, for the above info.
So what's their plan for Fox Soccer Channel that just upgraded to HD? If they keep that channel the same, that would be enough for me. BTW, I checked on FSC HD locator, Dish was the only one to carry it in my area. Great job Dish.
