ART Sport's erratic nature,
when it comes to live football, certainly precedes them but when they get it
right, it can be a great package to have in the arsenal.
ART has 7 sports channels in all and broadcast various live French Ligue 1 as well as various international
Included is a channel called Showtime Maghreb which broadcasts English
Premier League matches, all be it with French commentary. The EPL games
hosted, tend to be only games broadcast by Sky Digital and ESPN.
All the Sport channels have two audio tracks allowing you to choose an
alternate broadcast commentary, when available.
So far this season (2009/10), ART has been somewhat disappointing having
dropped a whole weekend of French League games as well as not broadcasting
any Scottish or UEFA Champions League football to date.
