got to agree with you here, setanta are really putting the effort in with regards to boxing coverage.

i bet they get a hell of a lot more subscribers after they announced this list.

Setanata seem to be showing alot of fights lately.

I get it free I have no idea what package I get!

I only ever knew Setanta for watching the Gaelic Football, but alas the channel is ****ing sick!

Even the footy ain't too bad. Chelsea/Tottenham next week.

they get alot of these fights due to the fact that the promoters would rather get some money than no money, but thank **** they are

Setanta is great!! I only wanted it for three months from January, but when I called them to cancel, they offered me another 3 months for only 5 pounds!!!

The only thing I dont like though, is when your watching on a widescreen tv, the picture is square and not widescreen. Its annoying!! Anyone else have this problem..or is it just me??

Is this the same setanta of the DISH network?

Is this the same setanta of the DISH network?

You can get it on the dish network in thee usa. Its monthly fee is $14.99


It might be a different verson tho to the uk verson because of TV rights by country ect....

Just been announced that Calzaghe v Hopkins is on Setanta. April 19th and as far as I can tell, NOT PPV!

Setanta is excellent for boxing. Although the delayed coverage of Chagaev and Skelton was very annoying, as a friend told me the result as I was watching the first round.

Aside from that , I highly recommend the Setanta Broadband service. Especially if you have a PC to TV setup.

With the Broadband service they have a lot of archived programs which you can watch 'on-demand' (and skip the adverts)...If i miss an early morning bout, I can catch a rerun whenever I want. Plus its only 7.99 a month..

I sound like a salesman, but it really is good, you do need a fast internet connection though.
