ESPN Win Premier League Broadcasting Rights

ESPN, the US sports broadcaster owned by Disney, has won the rights to screen 46 live Premier League matches next season which were formerly held by Setanta.

Setanta lost the rights last Friday when they failed to pay the Premier League the remaining 30million owed from last season. The situation is still unclear however who will bid for the FA Cup, England internationals and of course the Scottish Premier League TV deals after the Irish TV pay TV channel failed to cough up monies owed.
