It's like they've all decided to cash in on short-term money by selling to networks nobody gets instead of seeking to get on more sets to promote their brands. Meanwhile, the Barclay's Premier League has been able parlay its exposure on Fox Soccer and ESPN into a bigger deal with NBC Sports. Soccer on TV has become increasingly popular with the 18-35 set, but it seems like the other Big 4 leagues seem content to let the EPL have the US market.
It's just a matter of time until BeIN Sport replaces Fox Soccer on all the cable networks sports "tier" or whatever it's called.
Don't forget, it took awhile for Fox Soccer to be this readily available like it is now.
