    xavi6, what are the plans for beIN2, the channel in Spanish? In fact, will it just be the same programming as beIN1 but in Spanish, or will it be like Fox Deportes and ESPN Deportes, with programming very different from their English counterparts?

    xavi6, thanks for your insights and welcome aboard! And I can't wait for La Liga to start, and the South America Qualifiers to 2014 are the cherry on top of the sundae! :)

    It is being discussed at length on the Big Soccer message board. But beIN Sport 2 is supposed to be "La Liga Heaven" and would include matches from the Segunda Division as well.

    Can someone - Oliver or anyone else - please quantify what rights (domestic, various Champions Leagues, international Country competitions, etc.) are held by what providers at this point? I'm getting confused...which admittedly happens quite often!

    If Al Jazeera is involved is there any chance we will see African/Asia competitions?

    It looks like GolTV now has rights to the top division in Mexico based on DirecTV listings...but I don't see anything about that in searches. Still very disappointed the only time I was able to watch the Copa Libertadores was during our vacation in Cabo in late June/early July.

    Thank you in advance!!!

    Will be interesting to see what they replace, if it does replace.

    Here are the questions:

    1) Will this replace GolTV?
    2) Will this replace FS+?
    3) Will this be rolled out as a premium or as a member of the sports tier?

    If I had my druthers, the answers would be No, Yes, Sports Tier.

    Edit: Actually, I'd rather it not replace FS+, would be great to see them fit it in nearby and keep FS+. Still has EPL and UCL matches on FS+.

    Apology issued.

    BeIN Sports is great. So we have another person working at DirecTV giving us some inside scoops, which is nice....

    Looks like for now, we are getting the English one only, and GOL-TV (channel 620) is being replaced.

    This is not nearly exhaustive, I may miss channels that have 'pick rights', and I'm not sure on english/spanish language rights where they may be different for some of these, and the properties may be sent to a Spanish language channel (in the case of FSC/Deportes)


    Fox/FS/Plus - EPL, UEFA Champions League, Europa League, SPL, USMNT Friendlies (not sure if all or some), A-League, WC2018/22
    Fox Deportes - Libertadores, Sudamericana

    ESPN - EPL weekly pick, EURO, USMNT WC Qualifiers, MLS, WC2014

    NBCSN - MLS

    GolTV - 1.Bundesliga, Brasilerao, Brazil WC Qualifying/Friendlies, US Open Cup Final, at least some Argentina friendlies, some WC Qualifiers featuring Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Austria, and Norway, some CONCACAF WC Qualifiers (that may be on PPV or GolTV), Liga de Ascenso MX

    BeINSport - La Liga, Ligue 1 (English language only), FA Football League Championship, Serie A, CONMEBOL WC Qualifying, Copa Del Rey. They may have other rights to Africa/Asia based on their existing clearances, but I have no idea.


    Liga MX is split between Univision, Azteca, Telefutura & Telemundo

    My impression is that he is on the other side of this channel. Could be wrong but his only comments were on this and soccer in general.

    Wonderful...thanks to all of you!

    I hope DirecTV keeps GOLTV. Still a lot of good stuff there...

    not that i am a big soccer fan. but i have enjoyed watching german soccer from time to time since i lived in germany for over 2 years compliments of uncle sam.

    so i would miss gol tv. i can still watch it on cable along with fox soccer plus (full time hd). but i was hoping to ditch cable soon since dtv is adding new hd! :)

    No word one way or another. From the testing it looks like bein will be on 620 where Gol is now but Gol is also on 426.

    Losing GolTV today would be disastrous for Seattle Sounders fans...the US Open Cup Final is being broadcast tonight. Not a Sounders fan, but would like to see the final this evening. Hopefully remains a test...

    GolTV only had one live Bundesliga match per week and some channel on Dish Network appears to have all the live broadcasts of the bigger clubs with some delays of the not so notable matches.

    I'd have to imagine that they would broadcast a lot more Bundesliga matches now that they have lost La Liga. I think the Spanish league got much more facetime from Gol than the German league...that has to change now. Would have to think 3-4 matches per weekend, don't you think?

    Will be interesting to see if GolTV can survive (been saying that ever since beInSport scooped them for La Liga)...

    Now would be the perfect opportunity to do so as the said Dish Network channel has those rights in German, and trust me I am perfectly content without announcers.

    It could be as much as five live matches a weekend. Here is the first round scheduled for the weekend on August 24-26:

    • August 24, 2012

      2:30pm Borussia Dortmund vs Werder Bremen

    • August 25, 2012

      9:30am Augsburg vs Fortuna Düsseldorf
      9:30am Borussia M'gladbach vs Hoffenheim
      9:30am Freiburg vs Mainz 05
      9:30am Greuther Fürth vs Bayern München
      9:30am Hamburger SV vs Nürnberg

      12:30pm Eintracht Frankfurt vs Bayer Leverkusen

    • August 26, 2012

      9:30am Stuttgart vs Wolfsburg
      11:30am Hannover 96 vs Schalke 04

    I'm hoping they will secure Eredivisie rights, that would make it really interesting for me. But I think ESPN (for use on ESPN3 online) has those rights now.

    Yeah I've been surprised that either Fox or Gol didn't go after the Eredivisie before, but I suppose there isn't enough programming time during the day (especially with FS+'s commitment to showing rugby). Also seems like Portuguese or maybe even Belgian Pro would be worthy choices for airing...I mean even when Rangers were in the SPL the play in that league isn't nearly a strong as Eredivisie, Liga Sagres or Belgian Pro. One could even argue that the Russian Premier League is gaining enough quality to garner at least one match a week.

    Things are changing in the US, glad that the satellite providers are listening to the consumer.

    Eredivisie and the Portuguese liga deserve more TV time in the States. I suppose ESPN may try something with them now that ESPN FC will get significantly more play on ESPNews.

    I would like to see more of the Dutch League and its players because of their almost undefeated but nevertheless impressive World Cup run in '10. And the Portuguese League is about to overtake Serie A in the UEFA Coefficients.
