In case you missed the memo, the English Premier League kicks off this weekend, with some juicy signings spicing up the build up to launch. Just donât ask Arsenal fans about it.
With this in mind, UK broadcaster TalkSport has launched a new service that will open up online radio coverage of English football to the masses around the worldâ¦except in Europe.
TalkSport, owned by UTV Radio, is one of the UKâs three terrestrial, analogue independent national radio broadcasters, serving up round-the-clock sports chatter from a studio in London.
With TalkSport Live, football fans across Asia, Africa, Australasia and the Americas wonât miss a kick of the English Premier League this season, with every minute of every match broadcast throughout the seasonâ¦in English, Spanish and Mandarin.
Thatâs quite an impressive offering. Moreover, it will work on computers, mobiles and other connected devices via the browser (no native apps).
The service also features results, fixtures and live minute-by-minute match stats, with fans able to register their favourite team to receive match alerts when their club is playing.
Itâs worth stressing that these new broadcasting rights only apply outside of Europe â in the UK specifically, TalkSport has two matches every weekend through a separate domestic deal that it has had in place for a number of years.
Of course, if you prefer to watch the action where you are, then youâll need to find another avenue to satiate your football cravings.
