ELEVEN SPORTS USA
Eleven Sports Network USA is an American sports television network owned by UK-based company Eleven Sports. The latter extended its services to the other side of the Atlantic by entering the US market back in early 2017. Its launch followed Eleven Sport’s acquisition of certain distribution assets held by now-defunct channel, One World Sports.
Eleven Sports Network seemed to be off to an impactful start in the US after successfully striking carriage deals with major cable and satellite TV providers. Available to over 50 million homes, the network quickly signaled its intent of rising to become a competitive multi-sports broadcaster in America, showcasing a comprehensive line-up of events across various disciplines. Sports included in Eleven Sports Network USA’s portfolio included basketball, cricket, cycling, drone racing, ice hockey, lacrosse, rugby and soccer.
Live soccer matches televised on the channel in the US may differ completely from those aired on Eleven Sports channels in other territories—such as Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Singapore and Thailand—due to broadcast rights restrictions. Competitions that have been covered by the US network over the years include the Belgian first division and the Major Arena Soccer League (MASL).
