Additionally, a number of existing contract staff will be made permanent over the next 12 months.Three Ireland chief executive Robert Finnegan said the Limerick expansion would bring all customer care roles back to Ireland. He added that a planned €300 million investment in their high speed network would require up to 100 full-time equivalent roles through third party contractors over the next three years.Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan described the jobs announcement as a “positive reflection on all the existing employees in the call centre in Plassey who have a proven track record of hard work and professionalism”.“Limerick has demonstrated in recent years its ability to continue to attract jobs in various sectors with a number of multinationals choosing Limerick to establish their operations. These much welcome additional jobs in Three Ireland will contribute to improving our local economy while also helping all those agencies involved in attracting more companies to view existing similar type companies continuing to expand in Limerick,” she said.Castletroy-based Fine Gael TD, Kieran O’Donnell,  said the jobs announcement was a “further endorsement of Limerick as an investment location”.“It’s significant that Limerick has been selected as the location for customer services for the new combined business, which will have 37 per cent of the Irish mobile market.“This is a clear testament to Limerick as a good location for investment, and follows recent similar announcements from UPC and others. This emphasises the ability of Limerick to compete at the cutting edge of the provision of these services.“However it has a bitter-sweet quality to it with the announcement of job losses in retail around the country and headquarter operations in Dublin. I sympathise with those people who will be losing their jobs and hope that they will be able to take up employment elsewhere without too much delay,” he said.

Champions League live stream: How to watch 2020 UEFA soccer games online in USA

first_imgMORE: Watch select Champions League games on fuboTVCBS All Access is not the only live streaming service that will show Champions League games as the 2019-20 season reboots, but it’s the only one that will carry all 11 matches from the Round of 16 second leg through the Final on Aug. 23.Along with the new TV/live stream options for Champions League games in the U.S. is a condensed schedule of competition, as the quarterfinals and semifinals will now play out as single-leg fixtures at a neutral site rather than the typical home-and-home aggregate format for those rounds.Below are all of the details.Champions League live stream: How to watch games in the USAThere are four good (and by good we mean legal) ways to live stream Champions League games in the U.S., though only one option includes all 11 matches set to be played from the Round of 16 second leg through the Champions League Final in Lisbon.Streaming serviceChampions League accessCostFree trial?CBS All AccessAll games$5.99 per monthYesfuboTVSelect games$59.99 per monthYesYouTubeTVSelect games$64.99 per monthYesHuluSelect games$59.99 per monthYesCBS was supposed to take over the exclusive English language rights for Champions League matches starting in 2021, but it did so ahead of schedule after Turner Sports prematurely ended its deal in June. So CBS is now the home for Champions League action in the United States, but it will not show any of the 11 remaining matches this season on its over-air cable network.All Champions League matches are available live on CBS All Access, which is the network’s online streaming service. A select few, including the Champions League Final, will be shown on TV via CBS Sports Network, which is available on live TV streaming services fuboTV, YouTubeTV and Hulu.That select few, though, only includes a pair of Round of 16 second leg matches (Manchester City vs. Real Madrid and Barcelona vs. Napoli) and the Champions League Final. So those are the only three Champions League matches scheduled to be shown on fuboTV, YouTube TV and Hulu.All 11 matches, however, will be shown on CBS All Access, which makes it the easy choice for a live streamer who is signing up only to watch Champions League games.CBS All Access starts at $5.99 a month, but it is offering a one-month free trial promotion for new subscribers through mid-August. Users can cancel subscriptions at any time.Below are the devices on which CBS All Access can be streamed:AndroidiPhoneiPadApple TVGoogle ChromecastAmazon FireTVLGPlayStation 4Xbox OneRokuSamsungVisioXfinityWhat is CBS All Access?CBS All Access is so much cheaper than the other live TV streaming options listed above because it includes only programming from CBS and its affiliates rather than a wide range of TV channels. It is basically the network’s hub for all-things CBS.The majority of CBS All Access content is on-demand programming. The library includes all of CBS’ original TV series, as well as those from BET, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV and the Smithsonian channel, all CBS properties.The Champions League games will fall under CBS All Access’ live programming, which includes your local CBS cable station, CBSN, CBS Sports HQ and ET Live.Champions League schedule 2020The coronavirus shut down live sports on the same day (March 11) that Paris Saint-Germain beat Dortmund and Atlético Madrid topped Liverpool to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals. That left four Round of 16 games left on the schedule. The Champions League recently determined all four remaining Round of 16 matches could play out at their originally scheduled locations before the tournament heads to Lisbon, Portugal, the neutral site for all semifinal and quarterfinal matches as well as the Final.”It’s a phenomenal format for us in the U.S. to do it this way,” ViacomCBS chief digital officer Marc DeBevoise told The Associated Press. “A single elimination tournament is something these audiences fully understand. Obviously, there are big soccer fans but March Madness having been effectively canceled, I think people are hungry for things like this.”All Champions League matches are scheduled to start at 3 p.m. ET. Below is the complete Champions League schedule from what’s left of the Round of 16 through the Final at the end of the month.Friday, Aug. 7Round of 16 second legMatchTimeTV channelLive streamJuventus vs. Lyon (1st leg: 0-1)3 p.m. ETN/ACBS All AccessManchester City vs. Real Madrid (1st leg: 2-1)3 p.m. ETCBS Sports NetworkCBS All Access/fuboTVSaturday, Aug. 8Round of 16 second legMatchTimeTV channelLive streamBayern vs. Chelsea (1st leg: 3-0)3 p.m. ETN/ACBS All AccessBarcelona vs. Napoli (1st leg: 1-1)3 p.m. ETCBS Sports NetworkCBS All Access/fuboTVWednesday, Aug. 12Quarterfinals (Lisbon, Portugal)MatchTimeTV channelLive streamAtalanta vs. Paris3 p.m. ETN/ACBS All AccessThursday., Aug. 13Quarterfinals (Lisbon, Portugal)MatchTimeTV channelLive streamLeipzig vs. Atlético3 p.m. ETN/ACBS All AccessFriday, Aug. 14Quarterfinals (Lisbon, Portugal)MatchTimeTV channelLive streamBarcelona vs. Bayern3 p.m. ETN/ACBS All AccessSaturday, Aug. 15Quarterfinals (Lisbon, Portugal)MatchTimeTV channelLive streamMan.

So now the live stream options for Champions League games in the U.S. are completely different than they were before the tournament was suspended in March.last_img read more

Gautam Gambhir calls for a day-night Ranji Trophy final

first_imgAdvertisement lxdNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs2m50uWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Eptlkj( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 4hWould you ever consider trying this?😱bln57Can your students do this? 🌚fnn8Roller skating! Powered by Firework Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has asked BCCI president Sourav Ganguly to arrange a Ranji Trophy final under the floodlights following India’s successful maiden pink ball Test against Bangladesh at Kolkata. The match saw a massive attendance on the first three days and even tickets for day four was completely sold out in no time.Advertisement “I was at Eden Gardens and the Pink Ball Test was done really well by Sourav Ganguly and his team. There was just enough hype and drama around the game,” Gambhir wrote in a column.Advertisement “I was happy to see that fans’ interest was not compromised. I’d now request Dada to have a Ranji Trophy final with a pink ball.”The left hander also reckons that Virat Kohli should accept Australian skipper Tim Paine’s challenge to play a day-night Test at Adelaide next year. During the 2018-19 tour a pink ball Test was supposed to be held at the South Australian capital but India refused to play that game.Advertisement “I like the way Australia skipper Tim Paine has ‘flighted’ one for India captain Virat Kohli, challenging him to play a day-night fixture on the next tour Down Under. Knowing Virat he is not the one to back out.“And why should he? A day-night Test match between India and Australia at Brisbane or the MCG will be quite a spectacle. And you can trust Aussies to make it a truly memorable game by some smart marketing.“I haven’t seen Virat’s response for Paine but if I was him I would have straight away told him to make some late night babysitting arrangements as we were ready!” he concluded.
