Setanta Sports USA to cease operations




Setanta's loss is Fox Soccer Channel's gain.

Setanta announced Wednesday that it will be ceasing its broadcasting operations in the United States and Caribbean on Feb. 28 and that it will also be transferring many of its broadcasting rights to FSC effective March 1.

FSC will be launching its second channel, Fox Soccer Channel Plus, and will be broadcast in high definition the day after Setanta USA shuts down.

Setanta will continue to run its regularly scheduled programming in the USA and Caribbean through Feb. 28. The company's channel in Canada is not affected by the announcement.

What will you miss about Setanta Sports USA? Glad to see FSC taking bigger strides? Do you think this means more Proactiv commercials?
