I must say that I dont know much about satellite TV, since I live in Europe and have always had cable TV...
Since I live in Denmark, I probably got the advantage that it's a rather small country with no real big market for Pay per view, so the Danish "sports" channels show alot of European soccer (EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga, Danish superliga) as a part of the usual cable/satelite package without charging extra...
I pay around US$34 a month for cable TV including lots of the usual foreign channels and then ofcause all the different Danish channels that shows all the Danish NT and U21 NT games live (different channels), most of the Danish EC games live (different channels), Scandinavian Royal league games live (kanal 5), CL games live (Viasat 3+), some EPL games live, usually 2 German Bundesliga games live a week (kanal 5), once in a while even Rangers vs. Celtic live, one or two Danish Superliga games live a week (Viasat 3+) and normally also two Spanish La liga games live a week (kanal 5) ... All this included in the US$34 a month
If I then want to pick and choose freely between the all the Danish Superliga games and Champions League games (live ofcause), Then I need a Viasat Gold card that normally cost around US$68 a month extra... I dont know if the cheaper Viasat Basis or Silver package (that shows, CL, English FA Cup and Danish Superliga live on 3+) or Kanal 5 (La Liga and Bundsliga) would be available in Canada ? ... Kanal 5 is send to Denmark via satellite from London and can be recived in Denmark if you got a card from Canal Digital. Since I got cable I pay around US$1½ a month for Kanal 5 (included in the US$34)...
