Premier League has hit the United States and it tastes good | Barney Ronay | Football | The Guardian.

Lots of talk about food but I think the point got across. I think one thing that stops the Premier League getting even more interest is the time difference. I have no problem getting up at 6.45 am Central  time to watch certain matches, the big ones and anything Arsenal of course, but does the football alone convince those just starting up an interest to do the same? Maybe

The Premier League is definitely ahead of all the other leagues and they have the time difference issues too so it’s not that much of a concern. Having it on a channel like NBC and, as of this season USA network, also helps.

La Liga, the Bundelsiga etc need to figure out something but the Bundelsiga is at least on FoxSports 1. I’m saying this all as a Comcast viewer where all those channels are in the basic package and I know it differs.
