New York, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2011
For many New York sports fans, football means the Giants or the Jets. But for some, football is just another term for soccer – and soccer in New York means the Red Bulls. Or Galaxy, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Celtic, A.C. Milan – the world’s most popular sport takes place on an international stage, and hardcore fans want in on all the action. Well, grab the remote, soccer fans, because access to the best matches from around the world just got better.
New York cable provider RCN, the leader among New York cable companies, has added Fox Soccer Plus to its channel lineup, offering soccer enthusiasts the chance to turn their couch into a seat on the midfield line. The premium sports network broadcasts live soccer matches and rugby games from the best leagues across the globe, as well as expert analysis, stats and up-to the minute news via in-studio programs such as Fox Soccer Report and Sky Sports News.
