URGENT UPDATE: (8/26/13) Fox has confirmed to us that coverage on FSP has been cut back to 12:30 AM to 3:30 AM EDT. Waiting word from TSN up north. (09/25/13) We have been advised by the AFL that due to ancillary media rights guarantees requested by Seven Network and its unwillingness to provide a "clean feed" (i.e. absent 7 specific logos etc,) international broadcasters including Fox Soccer Plus and probably TSN2 will be unable to show anything except the Grand Final game itself. This will most likely mean coverage may be limited to 12:30 AM to 3:30 AM EDT in the US and Canada. As of now, coverage won't start until 11:00 PM EDT. This is purely at the feet of Seven not the AFL, Fox, TSN, or AFANA. We will have a firm schedule along with any additional updates between now and first bounce so check this article or our TV schedule page.
