Premiership Football is available worldwide on TV.
I recently watched it on network TV in Canada.
The Premier League website lists the channels that have the rights.
Many of these channels broadcast on satellite.
It's a bit long winded, but essentially pick the country you want.

Here's an overview to how.

FAQS


Q: What Premiership Football channels can I get on my SKY box ?
A: Sky Sports , Premiership Plus, Setanta Ireland , RTE


Q: So what was that channel they had in the pub showing the match last Saturday ?
A: Most likely ART but possible something else


Q: Can I get ART on my Sky Digibox ?
A: No. The Sky dish is pointed at a different satellite. It also uses a diferent encryption system.


Q: What's the Norwegian and Greek channels that used be in my pub showing the match ?
A: Canal+ Scandinavia and NOVA. Both unlikely to be there now as ART is much cheaper.


Q: Is ART the cheapest?
A: No. The Albanian channel Digit Alb seems to be.


Q: How many football channels on the ART card?
A: 4


Q: Do these channels, in particular ART, have English commentary?
A: Normally yes but occasionally when they don't the rumours abound that Sky are forcing them to broadcast in their own language for one reason or another.


Q: What equipment do I need ?
A: An 80cm dish (slightly bigger than a Sky dish at 60cm) pointed at the Hotbird satellite at 13 degrees east.
A satellite receiver.
A viewing card.


Q: can I use my cheap LIDL satellite kit?
A: No. The dish is too small at 57cm and the receiver cannot take a viewing card.


Q: How much does it cost?
A: basic equipment should run about €250.
card subscriptions in or about €20 per month.


Q: How does the card subscription work?
A: You buy it off-the-shelf in a 3, 6 or 12 month format. It counts down to expiry once you insert it in your receiver.


Q: My mate gets free Premiership football. How does he do it?
A: Read the rules. We don't discuss hacking here.


Q: Does any channel show free to air Premiership football ?
A: Yes. Channel 8 Turkey sometimes. It broadcasts on the Turksat satellite at 42 degrees east. get a motorised dish if you want this one. you could also try looking for a 'feed'. These are signals used by broadcasters to send matches to each other. Eutelsat at 16 degrees east usually has the most football feeds.


Q: What channel shows Celtic home SPL games?
A: Polsat Sport on the Hotbird satellite. it's an expensive card to buy. do a google. Sky Italy have recently started showing some too.

new 12 month ART sport blue cards can be had for 99 pound which as far as I can tell is the cheapest

Good FAQ. A copy in the ICDGopedia?

Also 15W telstar sometimes has match feeds.

Non-football sport such as USA PGA, NHL and NFL feeds are on some satellites, often on a Sunday evening.

An 80cm dish will work for feeds, but often they are 7/8 FEC or lower power meaning a 1.1m dish is a lot better. Especially if it rains.

NO Serie A

on another note,
interestingly they showed a Celtic home SPL game last night.
good news for Celtic fans as the other channel Polsat is prohibitively hard to get.

I have an 80cm dish, using it to get fta+ftv with sky box atm.

So if I purchase an ART 12 month card for 99pounds, and a new receiver, can i reuse the lnb i was using to get the fta for ART Sports?

Can someone recommend a decent cheap receiver that would do the job?

thanks.

I heard Art might be moving off Hotbird and will only be available on Nilesat, which is impossible to pick up unless you have a very large dish! Thats what puts me off getting the art card

This rumour pops up around this time every year. I would not take much notice of it to be honest.

Wont go wrong with a Technomate 1500ci super. Has a cam slot and also a built in card reader, which takes an art card no bother.
