Fox Soccer Channel, a self-sufficient channel that is capable of producing its own airing of soccer games intended for United States leagues. The ace broadcasting team of this channel includes Max Bretos, the channel’s play-to-play announcer, Christopher Sullivan, color announcer, together with Brian Dunseth, Mark Rogondino and Christian Miles that serves as sideline reporters while Todd Grisham acts as the studio pregame host, as well as the halftime and postgame airing.
The channel covers Major League Soccer, CONCACAF Champions Cup and National U.S. teams. Shows from outside the CONCACAF region were tapped using broadcast rights of the U.S.
The channel’s coverage is not only limited to soccer alone, it also covers shows like the rerun of Dream Team. It also covers a live talk show for soccer entitled Fox Football Fone-in which is formerly called Fox Football Friday. Also included on their program were the predictions and calls of the viewers for the Premier League.
However, Fox Soccer Channel divulged in 2006 that they already made their channel an exclusive network for soccer only. Included in the dropped programs were Australian Football League, Australian National Rugby League and Super 14 Rugby Union.
Fox Sports World, the sister company of FSC has filled out the void with other significant shows instead, these includes motor sports, pool, cricket, darts and other extreme kinds of sport shows.
Due to insufficiency of sport programs, the network had resolved to fill its daytime programming with infomercials instead, laced with random 30 minute replay of the previous day’s game.
To further contemplate on their inequities, they were forced to invite out of soccer celebrities to do promos for the channel. The list of these famous people includes Ziggy Marley and Paris Hilton up to date.
The channel still exists today under another name but its future is not virtually clear. Whatever will be the outcome, one thing is for sure, the channel’s future is still unpredictable.
