Not sure of the logistics or if it's possible but many years ago we had a one hour highlight's package of an American Football game. Or did it include other highlights as well? Cannot recall anymore but would it not be possible to obtain something like this? Not the live games, which obviously would be preferred, but a highlights package. Would be better than nothing.

I am even willing to settle for Sports Centre, that's how desperate the situation has become.

Watch SkySports News. They at least give some brief highlights and updates on what's happening. It may be as good as you're going to get. I just don't think there's enough of a market for the American sports to justify the cost of acquiring it.

You would be suprised.

I doubt it.

I would imagine the American sports would be very expensive to buy, and for a relatively small viewership (nothing like the EPL for example) the cost would be exorbitant.

I certainly don't want to see any American sport. The Americanisation (I refuse to use the -z- spelling) of the world is not something I wish to see.

It's not just about the typical American sport (i.e NFL, NHL, etc) , it's also for me about sport in America. There are for example lots of college swimming going on (shown on ESPN or such) which we don't get to see.

My argument has always been plain and simple, i doubt Glow or Africa Magic or Via or flikNet is paid by subs of people who purely have a interest in that type of content. Part (if not most of it) of my subs goes to pay for that content, why cant their subs also be used to pay for what i want to watch?? Truth be told, i only ever watch Watford games only on EPL.

Each to his own i guess.
