Setanta Sports 1 now called Premiere Sport
Espn

I know, what Im saying is ESPN being part of the Digital Max was a good pull for UPC, now its a premium service I dont see any pull sticking with UPC, its just channel loss after channel loss and lack of Sky SPorts F1 etc, This is the final straw for me

It isn't listed on the new ESPN's schedule for tmw or Friday and both are off in the States for 2 weeks I think from next week but hopefully it'll appear (with clips!) after that. Probably wishful thinking on my part though.

At least we'll still have the podcasts.
I didn't know it was off the air in USA , I'll really miss ESPN America I was bed ridden and in and out of hospital for over a year between 2010/2011 and all I watched was ESPN America

It usually takes a 2 week break in early August and I'm just presuming it'll be the same this year. I haven't looked at the listings though.

I say that be correct
I was talking to UPC yesterday about Horizon and while I was on the phone I asked about Bt Sport/Setanta and Espn
Was told there should be announcement made on Thursday/Friday
Asked what it was she told she don't know herself only to confirm Espn some channels closing
I expect there will be a press release tomorrow or by Friday
She agreed with me when I said UPC leaving this very late and lot of customers might not even be aware of this

We will know soon what that is we can only guess until we see in writing the press release or they put up a updated setanta package details on upc webpage

Thread called "Setanta's Announcement" running over in the UPC forum. Deafening silence from the reps in there at the moment despite a number of posts requesting info. Not exactly good PR for UPC today so far........

See below online chat with UPC Rep:


Welcome to UPC Live Chat Service. A representative will be with you shortly.

You are now connected with Kris

Kris: Welcome to UPC Webchat, home of Ireland’s 150Mb broadband and On Demand Tv. My name is Kris, how can I help?

XXXXX: Hi Kris, Just wondering if there is any news on the BT Sports add on and pricing.. No doubt you have been asked this a thousand times today., but in any case here is one more...

Kris: We have ben asked a thousand times this week! Unfortunately there is no update on pricing at the moment, but there will be an announcement tomorrow on the BT Sports channel and information on how to sign up and the pricing etc. I am sorry I would not be able to help today, but tomorrow will be the day we can confirm everything to our customers.

Kris: Is that ok?

May mean nothing but ESPN is no longer listed as being available as part of the eg Max digital pack.

(as an aside ESPN America has listings for tomorrow on UPC TV guide when I checked earlier)

UPC are now saying that details on pricing and how to subcribe - not looking to good for a 'freeview' period - we live in hope !

As an aside, Virgin Media have not done a deal with BT Sport for carriage in the UK.

We may hear something tomorrow. The pure speculation now seems to be that Setanta Ireland may remain in the basic package with the others, including ESPN), forming the Setanta or (perhaps Premier Sports) package, at an additional price. But as I say pure speculation, nothing to back it up other than Setanta still being in the packages on the website whilst ESPN has been removed.

In the meantime, the only way we'll know if we still have ESPN tomorrow morning is to switch on and look. And its goodbye ESPN America and ESPN Classic from midnight tonight either way, for everyone across Europe.
