    Torn over whether or not to grab FS+ this season. Following Fulham as we know, means few games on TV and plenty in front of my laptop Saturday mornings watching often crappy streams.

    Feedback? Does everybody have it? Is it worth it? I figure maybe 6-8 extra Fulham matches on FS+ a season, is that about right? I just hate to cough up another $15 a month for one channel.

    I am dropping FSP for FS2Go. You will get all the "tape delayed" Fulham matches live and can stream to your TV. Order before Aug 31st and it is slightly cheaper.

    I also do Foxsoccer2go. It's just more reliable than dodgy streams, plus Foxsoccerplus is not offered with my cable.

    Right now you can sign up for foxsoccer2go for 159.99 per year before Aug. 31, or you can sign up for the monthly plan for $19.99 (which is quite high if you're only going to watching Fulham, IM0).

    Well, certainly the package options your carrier offers are big factor...but I will say that I have FS+ and thoroughly enjoy the extra matches it offers. Time Warner out here offers both FS and FS+ in HD, so being able to watch all of the matches with great quality is a big factor for me.

    If FS+ is available on your carrier, I'd jump on it. I had FS+, FSC, and ESPN last season and I don't believe I missed a Fulham league match all season. Since I like to follow Americans, I was also able to watch Norwich, Bolton, and Aston Villa on a regular basis. Over the average weekend, I usually watched six out of the 10 matches played, and I can only remember one occasion where there was a Saturday or Sunday league match that wasn't carried by one of the three.

    The other great thing about FS+? No inane studio blabbering. As a result, you get to see good data pre-match, at half time, and post match.

    I love Fox Soccer Plus. I watch a lot of football and having the extra matches each week matters. I also watch Rugby and Aussie Rules so that's another reason why I have it.

    I would say if you're going to only watch Fulham matches then it's probably best to stick to crap feeds on the computer as paying $15 a month for one or two games isn't worth it. If you're into Rugby or the lower leagues of England then it is worth the money.

    Apparently the Championship and League Cup will be on some network called beIN Sport. It just started on Directv and will carry La Liga games and other European leagues as well.

    Already spending an absurd amount on cable/internet considering my income, so alas- no FS+ for me. On the plus side, more lively sessions with Gentleman Jim and the FUSA chatroom.

    I dropped FSC+ and instead purchased MLS direct kick so that I can watch every MLS game. Thought it was time to support the domestic game.

    The thing that annoyed me with FSC+ is that sometimes they didnt have the games in HD even though you're paying a premium for one channel.

    If you decide to get it and have Direct TV make sure you try to negotiate some sort of discount. Every time I ask for one they give me something. They may not give you a discount on FSC+ but they will likely offer a discount on something you are already carrying. I asked them to pro-rate my MLS package since I picked it up a few months after the season started. They wouldnt pro-rate it but they gave me such a good discount on the sports package that I am paying less now than ever. So I actually saved money by getting MLS Direct Kick

    FoxSoccer2go is the best way to go. You'll get all the premier games live, and for Rugby fans, a larger selection of matches there as well. Works great on the computer, and excellent quality on an iPad as well!

    Where do you guys watch the streams online at? I only have fox soccer and also am unsure about dropping $15.00 extra a month for plus. Also how much is it to watch the stream online?

    I subscribe to http://www.foxsoccer2go.com/home also. With Katie being in who knows what town come spring I prefer to take the game with me. So far the fall tour includes the ATL, Nashville and St. Louis. If you subscribe before August 31 and pay the one time fee it averages out to less than $13.50 a month. As long as you can live with some delayed broadcasts, which I can, it works just fine and the feeds are pretty good. If you want to be kind to a fellow Fulham fan they have a refer a friend deal going at the moment too.

    I just signed up for the free week on foxsoccer2go. The stream was good on this old laptop and I don't have to worry about the getting a virus or poor steams. From what I've read, all games are available for additional week on demand. I'm looking to keep it for the season.

    I used the following at various times last season. Found a good stream today on the first one.

    Used the first link also, and it's usually quite good. Welcome back sacffc, don't be a stranger.

    I've found that atdhenet is most likely to have a good stream with commentary in English, so I check them first. On those occasions last season when they didn't have a stream for Fulham, or they had one but it wouldn't work for me, I went to wiziwig or another forum that's no longer there. That's where the streams tend to be of uneven quality. When I had a good picture with non-English commentary, I found that it did not work to listen to Gentleman Jim because he always seemed to be 15 seconds off from the picture, and that was more annoying than useful.
