Forza Futbol

A Better Lens at Spanish Football

Elisa and Ravi had the pleasure of welcoming back Phil Schoen from BeINSport USA and discuss La Liga, Phil’s move from Gol TV to BeINSport, Champions league and the distribution of BeINSport USA in the US Cable scene  . If you are an Arsenal fan, Phil talks a bunch about Santi Cazorla & Arsenal.

Always fun to talk to Phil!
