Virgin Media announces new Setanta Sports deal

Virgin Media will be offering six Setanta Sports channels for free to XL TV customers. This is an excellent deal – especially for those who don’t want to subscribe to premium add-on channels like Sky Sports. From the 26th July they will be free to XL customers. The press release on the VirginMedia.com website says “Customers will get live coverage from over 250 showcase events a year, among them some of the biggest occasions in the sporting calendar. These will include 46 live games from the Barclays Premier League, 60 matches from the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League and the US PGA Tour golf, as well as European League football, rugby and horse racing from around the country. From 2008, customers will also get 25 of the 40 televised fixtures from the English FA Cup, a selection of England football Internationals and the Community Shield”.
