Actually, the more relevant question here might be this: Does MHz Networks still carry Australian Football League games?
I ask because MHz is now available through the Roku Digital Video Player, and according to the gang at AFANA, MHz still shows live AFL games. Thus, Major League Baseball would no longer be the only sport you could watch on the Roku.
Of course, this probably won’t get any of us hardcore football lovers to cut our cables and dump our dishes anytime soon, something I’ve lamented here before. We need the boys at Roku and Boxee and their competitors to give us sports fans some more complete offerings. If we could get, say, ESPN360 ESPN3 on a set-top box like this, it would become much more intriguing. A channel for Fox Soccer would also be something of a coup — and not entirely impossible, given that Fox seems to have the rights to everything except the World Cup, the Confederations Cup, La Liga, the Bundesliga and the Copa Libertadores.
How much would you pay for ESPN and Fox Soccer channels on a Roku? That’s a question someone ought to start asking.
