    Last night I lost ESPN America on the sat. When I tried to find out why, apparently the channel slots were bought by some company and they shuffled everything around. To compensate, Sky Germany and Sky Italy created US Sports channel and loaded it with exciting Impact Wrestling, Bass Fishing, and AMA Motocross.

    So now I've lost all the NHRA races, daily MLB games (in the summer), NHL (in the winter), Sportcenter, BaseballTonight, NASCAR Garage, P.T.I., Around The Horn, Sportswriters, NCAA Sports and a dozen other things.

    And I've gained Bass Fishing and fake wrestling! :facepalm:


    Yeah I know I would get it all back in the states, but was nice to have another connection from home while it lasted. :(

    You are SOL.. the channel no longer exists.


    >>>
    ESPN America was a British based European sports network, focusing on professional and collegiate sports of the United States and Canada. Originally launched on 5 December 2002 as NASN (the North American Sports Network), ESPN America broadcasts a selection of top North American professional and collegiate sports leagues including Major League Baseball (MLB), National Basketball Association (NBA), National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and Canadian Football League (CFL), 24 hours a day on digital cable and digital satellite television.
    Formerly operated by Setanta Sports with backing from Benchmark Capital Europe, it was acquired by the American sports media company ESPN in March 2007.[SUP][1][/SUP] It was subsequently re-branded as ESPN America on 1 February 2009 before closing on 1 August 2013.<<<<
