Soccer match broadcast issue

To our guests who are fans of the UEFA Champions and Europa Leagues:
Due to a dispute between DishNetwork and Univision, our access to many of the matches in these two competitions has been interrupted. We currently will be showing only to the small number of matches that are televised by TNT. We are looking into changing our provider and other solutions to this problem.

We apologize for this interruption and hope to have better news for you in the near future. In the meantime, please visit our website at www.cafepresseseattle.com for a full listing of all the matches we will be showing.
