SPAIN – La Liga US TV preview – Sept.29/Oct.1

 

 

 

 

The good news first: every match of Round 6 of La Liga will be shown on beINSport this week. The bad news: half of the matches will only be shown in the “90 in 30” version. Still, compared to Serie A and Ligue-1 coverage, La Liga is clearly the preferred league for beINSport and its coverage proves it. Here is a rundown of this round’s matches on TV:

While its impossible to please all fans no matter what schedule is put out, the coverage does beg a simple question: why aren’t the matches shown in the “90 in 30” version also available in their entirety? Real Madrid v Deportivo is being re-broadcast no less than 4 times during the week. Certainly there is room to show ALL of La Liga matches in their 90-minute format!? Lets hope as beINSport develop into a stronger and bigger destination for us soccer fans, that they come to understand that quantity is more important to us than what THEY percieve as quality.
