Those of you who have in the past considered ordering FSP following one of these previews should remember that this could be your last spring to enjoy the station. The way soccer is presented in the US will be changing this summer, and it's possible that FOX Soccer Plus will not exist when the Premier League resumes play in August. Give the eight-day preview a shot and then, if you liked what you say, think about ordering the station from just the end of February up through Survival Sunday. You likely won't regret the purchase.
