Not to be confused with the ART Package on Nilesat (7 West)

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 competitions.

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.
