Good luck trying to watch US-Jamaica

Good news: The supremely talented Phil Schoen will be calling the US-Jamaica game Friday night, along with former US player Marcelo Balboa and Robbie Earle.

Bad news: Unless you have DirecTV (in HD) or DISH (in SD), you will not be able to watch the game at home. BeIN Sport, the new Al Jazeera-owned soccer network, now holds the rights to US qualifiers, Spanish league, French league, Italian league, and regular cable providers have not signed on yet.
