What's the best option (dish or cable) in order to watch Premier League soccer and NFL?

You can get Showtime Sat with Showtime America Sports. You can add from MultiCHoice in Dubai the Foxsports network which would get you whatever is playing in USofA on Foxsports.

There is also Orbit/ESPN which might get you some football also.

... have the rights to the Premier League. They also give you the option of an English commentary.

yes al jazeera sports is in arabic, but most of us just learn to cope with watching the games without commentary.

you might also want to look into ART. they offer an excellent variety of sports channels (i think they have 6 in addition to the optional al jazeera package), but other than the sports channels their packages are absolutely crap.

Thanks mocha. So far looks like I'm learning toward showtime then. Hmm, but would bet my bottom dollar that the Al Jazeera channels will undoubtedly be in Arabic. Not quite the same!

oh well, decisions decisions!

i believe sportsNET America on showtime is supposed to show some NFL games

starting september 06 onwards you can add al jazeera sports channels to your existing showtime package. if i'm not mistaken they air games from spanish, portoguese, and italian leagues. not so sure about the FA cup though, but i think the english premiership is on sportNet World (showtime).

Actually the whole thing is confusing. Then ther's stuff like Silver and Gold packages for cable plus something called fastnet or Firstnet, whatever.

Hope to get some kind of installation this month. have to ask around I guess.

Thanks for the input though QR2,000 wayyy out of this puppy's league!

Cable? i didnt think cable was available. Someone mat prove me wrong but i think only satellite is available. For Prmier Fotball, a friend of mine has some south african channels that are good. Ill try and find out the package details unless someone else here knows. It costs around QAR 2000 a year.
