Setanta Loses the Prem

Troubled Irish broadcaster, Setanta Sports, have lost the rights to broadcast the 46 premiership games this season due to failure to pay the fees to the English Premier League.

It all looked like Setanta might be saved by a US invester, but this deal has since fallen through. The idea was for the invester to purchase 51% share of Setanta, but this now won’t happen.

The matches will be auctioned next week to make sure they do get broadcasted. They have however started to accept subscribers again, for how long this will carry on is unknown but currently they are short on requirements of subscribers to break even.
