HD TV coverage and Anzac Game in NZ

A long running problem should now be resolved. Since the AFL coverage has been on Fox Soccer Plus, any match originating from the Seven network usually was transmitted in wide screen standard definition (SD). Due to DirecTV policy, viewers using that satellite network only received the game on the SD version of FSP. The HD channel (621.1) was blacked out. This affected only DirecTV customers but was the source of great frustration and confusion. As of Round 4, 2015, Seven network will be producing all AFL matches in HD. (Foxtel already does this.) Therefore, as of this weekend, DirecTV no longer has any excuse to black out live matches on 621.1. All viewers should benefit from improved picture quality.

Regarding this coming Friday, the game between St Kilda v Carlton is listed by FSP at 8:00 PM. The match is in New Zealand and by all the sources we have from the AFL begins at 11:00 AM Melbourne time which equates to 9:00 PM US EDT. Fans are strongly encourage to take this into account when setting their video recorders or planning their viewing of the game. We have advised FSP of the issue and await an explanation or correction. While it's possible that ANZAC pregame ceremonies are being included however in this case the time window for the game is too short. (Update: 4/23/15: The AFL has confirmed the start time of the game as 9:10 PM US EDT. Pre-game ceremonies start approximately 8:38 PM . Telecast start time will be 9:00 PM. We have confirmation of that from the AFL and FSP. Coverage will run until 12 MN EDT.)

AFL Coverage on Fox Soccer Plus for Next 3 Years

The AFL announced today that it had reached a three year deal (2012-2014) with Fox Sports for weekly AFL coverage on FOX Soccer Plus (FSP).  FSP is the subscription channel counterpart to Fox Soccer (formerly Fox Soccer Channel and before that Fox Sports World).  The cost will be $14.99 a month and FSP is available to customers of DirecTV, DISH, Verizon FiOS, AT&T U-verse, most Time-Warner and Brighthouse cable systems, Cablevision, Cox, BlueRidge, Bendbroadband, SureWest, FullChannel, Frontier, and RCN cable.  The AFL was unable to come to a deal with ESPN for continued coverage on their outlets.  Coverage will be two live matches per week typically (will vary occasionally) plus all finals live. The AFL Winners weekly highlight show will be available on FSP also. AFANA will post more detailed schedules in the next few days and update all of our TV pages to reflect this change in coverage. (TV pages have been updated)  Canadian TV coverage will remain on TSN2 with one live match per week.  (Addendum: 03/23/12: MHz has confirmed they will continue coverage this season with games on Monday nights at 10:00 PM EDT, repeated on Saturdays at 4:00 AM EDT.  Matches will be edited to 2 hrs and they will not carry the highlights programs ("AFL Winners") this season on Saturdays.
