This is quite informative. We soccer fans are watching the game not listening so who cares whether it's in Spanish or English. Rogers are definitely not promoting the games on channel 780. I used the search method to find the game and could not find it anywhere. Another way of gouging customers. You will not make any money from me.
Not a soccer (or any other stick-and-ball sport) fan, but here's my 2 cents. My love is motorsports, cycling and some athletics mostly. If you understand the sport and the director follows the action properly, the commentary can be superfluous and even annoying at times. But many people follow certain sports only when they're popular in the news and appreciate the commentary. I just checked Channel 780 and was dismayed that it's in SD. While high definition detail may not be as critical in soccer as in, say, motorsports, I think it's just as important as the language.
