A confident Manchester United take on West Ham at the Old Trafford on SundayReuters

Nothing beats chilling out in the weekend after a week of hard work. When it's football on TV, the relaxation goes to a different level. The beauty of the weekends has forever been European football and thankfully, it continues to be the same.

We are slowly approaching the end of the first half of the season. The top teams from Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga or the other European leagues at the moment may or may not remain the same when it all comes to an end in the middle of next year. 

Nevertheless, the action will keep continuing and we will continue to get enthralled in the weekends like always. The last weekend saw two of the Premier League juggernauts -- Manchester United and Arsenal -- clash swords and ultimately, come out with a draw. The match no doubt has been one of the best so far in the Premier League 2016-17 season in terms of quality but certain viewers in India have remained disappointed of not being able to witness the match.

Blame it all on Star Sports, the official broadcasters of the Premier League in India, shifting their matches to the HD setup. Read here to know more about Star Sports Select HD.

The trend will continue for a long time now unless Star Sports come up with another major announcement. The message, however, is out: If you want to enjoy football, make sure you pay extra from your pocket and watch them in the best quality possible!
