Don't forget, it took awhile for Fox Soccer to be this readily available like it is now.
Of course, News Corp. was able to get Fox Soccer on a lot of carriers because it owns Fox Sports Regional Networks, Fox News, FX, and maybe a couple of other networks it could use to bundle as a package deal to get Fox Soccer into the main tier, rather than the "pay extra for it" sports tier. I have Fox Soccer in my basic package (I can pay extra if I want their second channel, Fox Soccer Plus). I also have NBCSportsNet in my basic package, probably because NBCUniversal and Comcast have a boatload of networks they can package to entice carriers to put it in the basic tier. What does Al Jazeera offer besides BeIn and Al Jazeera America that will get cable carriers to not only pick it up, but offer it in the main tier rather than sticking it in some premium tier?
