La Liga fans in Indian sub continent will be once again deprived of the opportunity to catch 2010-11 season Live on television. ESPN-STAR has confirmed to me that they will not be telecasting the 2010-11 season, due to terms that were not acceptable to both parties. This happened last season also. Real Madrid's big spending saw the broadcaster asking ESPN to pay more which they were obviously not ready to do. La Liga telecast usually happens after mid-night in India and due to that ESPN-STAR is reluctant to pay more(due to lack of advertising, maybe). Last year when ESPN-Star announced their decision, we all hoped Ten Sports could do something. Even though they gave some hope, but nothing happened in the end. So this season also don't expect TEN Sports to come and save you as none of them are interested. The only hope is to stream via internet, like we all did last season. You can watch matches online at MyP2P.

This is really sad. I was hoping that ESPN would resolve this atleast this year.

Everyone's out there for money. They don't care about the fans.

I also have no broadcaster in my country (Estonia). I know India is a big country and there are a lot people who would like to watch, but there's also an option of watching online and that's not too bad.

One year has passed but the story is the same and so is the frusteration of many in the Indian Subcontinent.

However since last year my cable operator airs South African channel Super Sport 3 which broadcasts La Liga in Pakistan. It is not fully dedicated to La Liga but show La Liga games only after English Premier Leagues games (even of bottom clubs who no one maybe interested in) are finished. Still I manage to catch most of Barca, Real and sometimes if played late then Valencia and Sevilla games as well.

So might as well your cable operator for Super Sport 3 in India.

Lastly, how can La Liga get a larger fan base in Indian Subcontinent when Mediapro will ask for top dollar in an untapped market.
