DirecTV offers UEFA Champions League Mix
OMG!!! I'm as giddy as a 10 year old girl at a Jonas Bros concert!!!
If you are a DirecTV customer (like I am), you can now get all of the Champions League matches live in one spot. Channels 461-466 have been converted to the UEFA Champions League Mix where you can see all of the coverage provided by FSC and the other Fox outlets. DirecTV does this sort of thing for big sporting events. I just watched a bunch of the PGA Championship this weekend on their PGA Championship Mix package. It's pretty awesome. You don't have to guess which regional networks are showing the games. Just flip to the mix channels and they're all there.
If you haven't switched to DirecTV, here's another reason to do so, stat!
