Setanta Sports has finally gained distribution on one of the major cable companies in the USA.   It was announced on Wednesday and confirmed today that Setanta will begin appearing on cable systems in northern Virginia owned by Cox Communications.  That will eventually be followed by wider distribution on Cox systems nationwide.  The cost is expected to be similar to that of existing outlets, about $14.99 per month, on a subscription basis.  At this time no definitive schedule for the rollout on Cox has been released but it will likely take several months or more.  Thus it is not known how soon viewers on Cox systems can expect it to be available in their area of the United States (fans are encouraged to call their local Cox cable office but understand that they may not know the local rollout date just yet).  Initial areas to get Setanta will be the Cox systems in Fredericksburg and Fairfax, Virginia.  Cox has indicated Fairfax area fans may subscribe as early as today (ch. 298), and Fredericksburg will follow soon.

Up to this time, Setanta has only been available via satellite, Verizon FiOS, and IPTV systems.  AFANA will provide updated information on our TV pages as it becomes available.

Thanks, Pete, for the heads up.   We are currently in communication with Setanta to get official confirmation and more details.   Once we have a response from Setanta and assuming this is in fact confirmed, we will make another front page announcement on the web site and update our other pages accordingly.
