Where can I find out which World Cup qualifier matches are being televised, on what channels, and when?

I don't know why it's so incredibly hard to find out which matches are freely viewable. Not just world cup, even, but any matches. I understand they want to make many of them only available via premium packages and pay-per-view, but jesus. Is there a succinct, user-friendly clearinghouse for this sort of information?

If you get ESPN 360 then there's a slew of games available there.

ESPN 2, Fox Soccer Channel, Fox Soccer Espanol show them as well as Univision on occasion.

Setanta Sports and Fox Soccer Channel are where I saw all of the World Cup Quals for the last Cup. Setanta isn't cheap-$15 a month-but since I moved back to the states it is the only way I can keep up with my Rugby fixtures. Setanta has three live qualifier play-offs for tomorrow; Russia v. Slovenia, Greece v. Ukraine, and Portugal v. Bosnia-Herzegovina. FSC is showing a time delay of Friday's fixture with New Zealand v. Bahrain at 2am EST, and again at 4pm Sat. Here is a list of the schedule, scores, etc. Hope this helps.

Soccer Insider, a Washington Post blog, lists the tv schedule every week. You can also check SoccerTVListing.com, and see the current day plus the next day's schedule.

the 90th minute soccer blog (no relation) seems to be listing the times and stations by day, like here.
