[TELEVISION] The UEFA Champions League's move to Fox for the next three seasons gives it a chance to spread its coverage of Europe's most important competition across a number of affiliated networks, including Fox Soccer Channel, FSN, FX and Fox Sports en Espanol.

FOX SOCCER CHANNEL. In particular, it boosts FSC's midweek programming, including prime-time coverage of replayed Champions League play that was of much lesser value to ESPN. Coverage on FSC, available to nearly 35 million subscribers, will feature 110 live and delayed UEFA Champions League matches per season and includes one live and two premiere match telecasts per match day as well as live pregame and postgame shows from its Los Angeles studios.

All live matches will kick off at 2:45 p.m. ET on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the course of the season. Fox Soccer Channel will also produce a 30-minute UEFA Champions League highlight show at the conclusion of each match day.

FSN. FSN - reaching up to 83 million homes nationwide through its owned and affiliated regional sports networks - will televise 16 live matches per season.

FOX SPORTS EN ESPANOL. Fox Sports en Espanol -- FSC's Spanish-language sister -- will distribute 94 total contests (live and delayed) in Spanish to its 14 million subscribers.

FX. The UEFA Champions League Final will air each season on Fox cable network FX, reaching over 95 million homes nationwide.  In 2010, the final will be staged on a Saturday for the first time in its history, with the match kicking off at 2:45 p.m. ET on  May 22, 2010 at Madrid's Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

SETANTA SPORTS USA. Setanta Sports USA remains in the picture, acquiring the rights to a package of 94 live and delayed UEFA Champions League contests that will see an improved lineup of matches on Setanta over the next three seasons.

(All UEFA Champions League matches will be streamed live on the Setanta Sports Broadband subscription service.)
