I was also under the impression that I could receive fox soccer through a private channel?
That speed should be fine. I would also recommend that you get the top Roku with the hardwired Ethernet connection as well as wireless, they are just a little bit more expensive, instead of the others that only run wireless. Wired is always better than wireless.
As far as Fox Soccer goes I think that when I looked it required that you have the Fox Soccer ch through you cable provider first and then you can subscribe to the online version. It would require the purchase of a premium tear on my cable system (For the Fox soccer ch) and then the additional cost of an online subscription. Even if there was no additional charge for online the requirement to have cable TV, and a premium level at that, kind of defeats the purpose of cutting cable.
In reality if Fox Soccer was available on line as a standalone for $10.00 to $15.00 a month it would be a good value but the way I understood it I would have to pay about $60.00 more a month than I do now just for that one channel.
Gol TV is another I would like but I cannot even find them online.
BTW: I think there is a European package available in some of the EU that includes all the EPL, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, League 1 and many others but I also believe that it is restricted to EU countries.
But like I said there is plenty of soccer available it is just that much of the best seems to be missing.
