Barclays Premier Soccer joins UEFA soccer in being dropped from Canadian Cable in August 2019

I have finished sticking all the needles I was given in the kit into my Soccer On Canadian Cable TV Voodoo Doll. DAZN is now the only way you can watch soccer. I have not heard boo from any of those involved in soccer here north of the 49th in North America on this subject. Mortua Est - like the Romans said when they conquered Britannia!! What this means is that all involved are content to be downgraded TO A STREAMED SERVICE FROM LMEYLAND - you pays your 240 loonies a year and get what the rest of the world has on regular cable! Barclays Premier and UEFA - where all the elite players participate for the big bucks and honors. We are left here on cable to see MLS and our national teams. Adios - it's been nice knowing you!

Hi there @Cacat,

 

I know you're an avid soccer fan and it is a significant change to your TV watching experience. The streaming service has indeed secured Canadian broadcast rights for the English Premier League for the next three seasons.

 

These games are only available online and not available through any TV service provider in Canada at this time.

That appears to be the trend. I'm no soccer fan, but do follow other sports not popular with The Great Unwashed. Cycling and Motorsports. Just a few years ago all the classic cycling stage races were available on cable TV without having to subscribe to extra cost packages. Not anymore. All we have left is the Tour de France. Similarly for motorsports.  Where do you find WRC anymore?  All we're left with are the stick-and-ball stuff.
