With the big success of the EPL on NBC sports, others might be looking to cash in on the US market. I'm not sure if La Liga/Serie A/Bundesliga have the overall foreign popularity to maintain big deals here, but is there anything rules-wise stopping the big clubs from negotiating there own US deals, ie, Barcelona or Bayern airing matches on TBS/TNT?

TBS only airs Baseball playoffs and TNT airs Basketball. I think these channels still live in the era of nobody watches soccer in the US and only watch the big 4 (Basketball, Hockey, Football, baseball)
