With the first match of the Premier League between Arsenal and Crystal Palace set to kickoff today (August 5) at 3 pm ET, regional rights holder VertiCast Media Group has indicated that its CSport channels on cable and its website are up and running, ready to provide uninterrupted live football content to the thousands of excited fans across the Caribbean.

“We are live and ready,” assured Timothy Paty, chief business development officer at VertiCast.

“I know there has been a lot of discourse in the region about where people will be able to view this season’s Premier League matches, but we want to assure fans that they will be able to catch all the Premier League action via the CSport channels on our cable partners as well as stream live on”


The announcement, particularly in relation to the website, is expected to be welcomed news in Jamaica, where football fans have been concerned in recent days due to the fact that neither of the major local cable service providers – Digicel and Flow – currently have CSport channels in their line ups.

In addition to its CSport cable channels which went live on more than 40 cable platforms across the region on August 1, Verticast said its live streaming website went live on Thursday and will give fans access to all 380 games of this season’s Premier League plus action from the NFL, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and UEFA European National Football.

According to Paty, regional fans will enjoy a free trial period on streaming site until August 31, 2022.

“Friday’s opening day fixture between Arsenal and Crystal Palace is expected to be the perfect matchup to start the season and I know that the fans in the region are excited for this,” Paty said.

To gain access to and take advantage of the free trial offer, fans have been invited to create an account and choose from the channels and game listings on the site.

The site is, however, not yet compatible with iPhones.
