Setanta Sports Added to Home2US Lineup

Like a soccer standout determined to score one for the fans, Home2US (www.home2us.com), a leading provider of top international television and radio programming to ethnic audiences across North America and beyond, today announced the sure-hit addition of Setanta Sports to its direct-to-home lineup. Home2US also announced it has just reached the 55-channel milestone, expects to hit the 80-channel mark by year-end and now serves more than half a million households across the U.S.

“The 24/7 Setanta Sports network is sure to be a huge hit among Home2US customers, whether they’re from Korea or Croatia or anywhere in the world. While we import the best international content from around the globe for U.S.-based ethnic audiences that speak a world of different languages, our expanding sports genre has universal appeal,” said Emrah Ozkan, Home2US CEO. “Setanta Sports is a great addition to our fast-growing lineup that continues to win over an equally healthy subscriber base that doubles virtually every year.”

Setanta Sports in North America is an international network devoted to delivering world-class international soccer and rugby programming to the North American audience, including the Barclays Premier League, FIFA 2010 World Qualifiers, and UEFA Champions League soccer and the RBS 6 Nations, Tri Nations, and Currie Cup rugby.

“Setanta Sports is happy to have such a major distributor helping us broadcast our world-class sports coverage to fans across the country. Home2US is a great service that will help us reach even more passionate fans living in the U.S,” said Shane O’Rourke, Setanta Sports’ president of North American and Australian operations. “We’re excited to be giving this kind of access to sports fans.”

“As Home2US enters into its sixth year of business, our team continues to acquire top content from around the world — as evidenced by the addition of Setanta Sports to our premier lineup,” said Ozkan, who founded Home2US in 2003 as a way to meet U.S. demand for top international sports, entertainment, and news. “We certainly see the value and importance in signing up Setanta for our sports-loving subscribers, and Setanta has gained the growing reach of Home2US and our multiplatform distribution network set to serve DTH, pay-per-view, telco, cable, and streaming customers nationwide.”
