I’m guessing NBC Universal caved into the public outcry and saw that a free preview of its little known channel represented a golden promotional opportunity at the same time.
And how do I define “widely available”? Well, I get DirecTV. Mun2 is on Channel 410.
Incidentally, I’m no fan of Wednesday’s MLS All-Star game, as regular readers know, but it’s good to see Chivas USA goalkeeper Zach Thornton get added to the squad in the absence of the Houston Dynamo’s Pat Onstad.
From the Chivas USA press release:
Thornton, 35, has played every minute of the MLS season for the Red-and-White, notching seven shutouts and a 0.88 goals against average in 17 games. His eight wins and seven shutouts are second only to Onstad, who has played two more games. Thornton and Seattle Sounders FC’s Kasey Keller are the two goalkeepers on the All-Star Team roster for the match against Everton.
