ESPN coming to Europe

Within the next year, ESPN will be viewable in Europe (source: London Times)

They are currently working on making an agreement with Sky Sports. This could affect what is shown in the U.S. (hopefully more tennis!!)

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Same broadcast as in USA? Surely that wouldn't be the best commercial strategy as they are very different markets. I'm interested to see some American sports but not all the time. I'd like to see some American football, baseball and NBA to see what the fuss is about and learn the rules. Although I don't even have a clue what ESPN offers. Women's basketball, wrestling, NASCARracing for example wouldn't interest me at all.

damn colonists
ignore their patronizing
tear off their blindfold
open their eyes
allez
