****ing joke that.

Uk fighters not on a Uk channel!

Guys like Khan and Calzaghe are made for ITV.

Luckily my dad has sentanta so I can watch Calzaghe Vs Kessler at his.

Then again since boxing isn't on all year round and there are big gaps between fights it wouldn't be too much hastle to get a months subscription then cancel would it? It's only a tenner a month

ITV got 8 million viewers when Audley bored us In the 1st Wiiliams fight which proves that boxing can be mainstream.

It'll be on Setanta Sport 1 , which is a UK Satellite channel the same way Sky Sports 1 is . Setanta as a group are Irish but originally set up in the American market .

However I too am unhappy this isn't on (UK)terrestrial tv , I don't want to keep forking out for Setanta but it seems I may have to .

Don't Setanta have a deal with Fight Academy now too ?

tenner a month through a freeview box with card slot i think. fifteen if you're using a sky box.

i have setanta until early august due to the ricky hatton fight, but i'm definitely cancelling in august because i haven't watched the channel since.

if you can still leave and join without getting tied down to a contract i may follow your suggestion at least for the calzaghe fight...i suppose at least you get a few football matches as well.

i'm still pissed off though. i can see us ending up in the same position as the united states where most of the top boxing is tied to two subscription channels (HBO and Showtime) or PPV.

edit: just checked the website and it looks like it has come down to a tenner a month.

Fight Academy and Sports Network on Setanta. Plus random fights like Cotto-Judah. Looks like I will have to invest. That should mean fights every month though.

Unfortunately we will lose the mainstream fans because they won't pay.

Setanta will pay though. They gave Hatton $4mil for one fight. ****** is saying outside of the heavies he has dealt with he is giving Calzaghe and Kessler the biggest purse ever, thus he needs solid cash.

Ten pound a month is cool, especially when the footie starts. Given that you can get it through a freeview box as well. I wonder what Frank thinks about sharing a channel with sports academy though? Hopefully that will start a rivalary to make the best bills and should also make cross stable fights easier to work out.

I got 2 free months with the Hatton fight and I was going to cancel after that but with this news and Liverpool FC announcing their dedicated TV channel will be with Setanta I think I'll keep it.
