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. Also, FSP on some Time Warner systems which offer the Sports Pass package of channels,  FSP will be just $5.99 -- price may vary slightly in some areas.)

Late Change Announced to AFL Highlights and Internet Coverage

Major changes have been announced to the AFL weekly highlights programs and online coverage by the AFL.  Details were made available to AFANA in the past 24 hours.  (There are no other changes we are aware of besides what is reported here.)  The traditional AFL highlights programs have been replaced by a FOX Sports produced program called "AFL Winners" and the the online service previously provided by Aussie Sport TV (ASTV) has been replaced by LiveAFL.TV.  The new service is supposed to support platforms other than the Windows based PC's including Apple Mac's.  (We have not tested this as yet but there are at least two reports that it does work on Macs.)

New TV Option for AFL Fans and Ex-Pats

(Ed. note:  This service appears to be defunct as of early 2010.)
A new TV service has debuted which offers sports fans and ex-pats an opportunity to watch Sydney television from the comfort of their residence in the USA provided you have a broadband connection.  TVfromOZ has begun operations and utilizes "Slingbox" technology to deliver television from Australia to your PC or TV.  Initially Channel Ten and the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Company) are available with more channels to be added soon.   Any sports, including AFL coverage and other programming that can be seen on over-the-air (OTA) television on those channels will appear just as it would if you were in Sydney.   Slingbox is a "place-shifting" technology available here in the US and has, up to this point, been used primarily to allow people to watch their home television from a remote location such as a hotel room or on their mobile telephone or Blackberry.

TVfromOZ will offer several options to fans:

Setanta - NexTV Plea to Disgruntled ITVN Subscribers

Setanta e-mailed it's subscribers with a notice today making the case for former ITVN subscribers to sign up for NexTV (see our earlier article on NexTV).  The notice also mentioned the on-going problems that former ITVN subscribers have had getting their monthly credit card, checking, and debit card payments to the now defunct ITVN stopped -- see this thread.  (AFANA agrees with the notice below... call your credit card company or bank and place a fraud report!).   We are unable to excerpt the text of the Setanta e-mail because for reasons unfathomable to AFANA, the text is available solely embedded into an image, worse it is white text on a black background in a small font.   (Dumb!)  Here is the notice they sent out:

Television Info - Aussie Rules TV Coverage for North America in 2019

Australian Rules Football Television Coverage in 2019

We have full schedules at our AFL TV schedules page.
We have weekly radio listings for the AFL at our AFL Radio page

This page will give you the basic facts you need to know about TV Coverage in the USA, Canada, and Mexico in 2019 and is expected to be largely unchanged from late 2018. Information will be updated as necessary throughout the 2019 season. It appears we will get one live game per week on FS2 (rarely on FS1) and three on FSP. This year there is extensive coverage of the AFLW, AFLX, and AFL preseason. Coverage in Canada is unchanged from last year, mostly on TSN2 and occasionally other TSN channels. (The 2018 season has concluded and there are limited repeats and some special off-season coverage like the draft still to air. Check this page in early January for important 2019 updates. Information for 2019 is very preliminary.)
