Finally we have these packages on Virgin.There was always an option to get ESPN America by paying extra but now even ESPN Classics is now on and ESPN HD.

Happy days we got access to some old fights now.

Is ESPN Amercia also what the new premier league season will be on? I'm planning to sign up but wanted to make sure, are their any fights scheduled on it that setanta would have had? Because Setanta still had David Haye until they went bust in England so wasn't sure if ESPN have picked that up as well

ESPN have NO fights or boxing signed up.

If you are signing up for boxing forget it.

Not true mate, they are showing Friday night fights on delayed coverage and they showed the Witter fight delayed. Hope for the future.

Thats even worse mate. DELAYED is key word. They have there own Friday night boxing, and they can't even be arsed showing that live. Surely that tells you how bothered they are about boxing.

I aint interested i nwatching sport that aint live, can you imagine if SKY decided to show all football matches on a delay?

Sport is meant to be watched live, not delayed or next day. Either show boxing live or don't show nothing.

I know man but they've only been broadcasting for a week so it could be a good sign for the near future, Boxing News says Hayemaker are in discussions with them.

In talks with Haye for what?

SKY have the Valuev fight and will be PPV.

Edit: Just seen you mentioned Hayemaker promotions nt Haye.

But still they had plenty of time to announce boxing, they soon got 10 other useless sports signed up.

They seriously telling me a portugal league game would get more than a boxing fight? don't think so.

I watched Anthony Dirrell beat Alfredo Contreras on Friday Night Fight program this afternoon! The fight only happened yesterday! There is hope for this channel!

It will be pretty sweet if this starts showing boxing like setanta did. For now we will just have to make do with the premier league but hopefully in the future they will start showing us some of the big fights live

The quality of ESPN UK is superior to ESPN US if streamed over the net, I can tell as I'm watching it right now :D (I'm on the other side of the pond, waiting for the UFC 101)
