    If you think Turner is going to be better than Fox I don’t know what to tell you. It’s not a good move at all.

    And none of the semifinals were on Facebook....it was all FS1. The Quarters were different.

    I'll sure be sad that I can't watch matches in low def on FS2 or Fox Soccer Plus (both cost extra) because Fox decided to show NASCAR practice on FS1 and random Reds highlights on Fox Sports Ohio.

    How can you be mad that Turner won't be televising all of the knockouts and praise Fox when they did the same?

    Everyone has bitched about the Fox coverage because it is terrible. The WC coverage is going to be a mess, UCL coverage has been a mess, Bundesliga coverage is a mess

    I'm honestly still baffled by this after taking a few minutes.

    Fox would bump things to FS2 and Fox Soccer plus which cost extra, literally to show practice or qualifying for NASCAR. They didn't televise all the knockout matches. They put QF matches on Facebook. Not every group stage match could even be streamed and those that could, were either the ones that were on tv, or were on a pay streaming service, FoxSoccer2Go.

    What is different other than getting away from a known quantity that is bad to an unknown?

    All of the games were able to be streamed for free from Fox....now you have to pay for Turner's streaming. That is the primary difference plus they are televising even fewer games.

    FS2, your local Fox Sports affiliate, and others were utilized for games. Now it will be one or at max two channels used to televise games. They are staggering the games next year which will allow for more games to be shown.

    All of the games were not able to be streamed for free. FoxSoccer2GO was a pay service and showed some of the matches. The free matches were the ones that were shown on tv.

    Again streaming was free on Fox....now it is not. Not a hard concept to comprehend. 80% of the matches will need to be streamed via Turner's pay for service.

    Can it be any more clear?

    Your cable/internet package must suck. Every match was free the past number of years I can remember with Direct TV.

    No, it was not my cable, it's literally on FoxSoccerMatchPass.com that they air UCL games on it and it is a pay service. It even says now that they do not plan to air World Cup matches on this pass because they will be airing all of those matches free

    You're wrong.

    But at least Fubo has BeIN and all of the Fox shit in one place. They don't have the Turner stuff :feelsbadman:

    For the record, by my estimation Fox aired roughly 57 matches for UCL this season

    All from the comfortable confines of their studio in the USA!

    Not much is better than listening to Lalas broadcast a game, then the halftime show starts and there he is in studio!’

    The fact that they’re sending so few broadcast teams to Russia and have the majority in studio in LA should be enough for no one to defend anything they do but here we are

    I actually like Laguna and Trujillo.

    Univision is full of clowns tbqh and their tendency to consistently miss vital moments of matches due to some bullshit technology replay is also infuriating.

    Fox hiring Fiore and Perez Navarro who used to be Univision mainstays is hilariously bad though for english broadcasts.

    Thankfully telemundo has the Spanish language rights for the World Cup this time.

    Univision hired Luis Omar Tapia and Diego Balado who are great

    Great relatively speaking maybe. Tapia is ok albeit overbearing and Balado isn’t terrible and has been there a long time but it’s mostly a clown show at Univision and they usually appeal to the lowest common denominator. It used to be a lot worse though so they’ve got that going for them I guess.

    Random thought because we can't finish top 4 anymore. Europa has been at it for a few weeks now. I had to go on Futmob and stop the Europa alerts because I legit thought it was hacked with the shit that was alerting me. It was like a name I would make up for a team in FIFA.
