    I agree,I posted earlier that all Directv needed was to make a call to the maintenance man to flip the switch for GOLTV HD.

    We need...

    Telemundo HD Ch# 406
    GOLTV HD
    Fox Deportes
    Aljeezera America HD
    Encore Drama HD
    Fox Movie Channel HD
    TV One HD

    and...

    Fox and FXX On Demand...

    Once Style and Sprout go HD, I'll move up to the next package that includes those channels. I think that's a $7 a month jump where I'm at now. On well DirecTV's loss.

    GSN, We, Oxygen, The Hub, Fuse, Reelz, Style, Sprout, bbc world news HD, ovation HD, FXM, Sundance all would be great adds.

    I don't understand the technical aspects. Obviously, GolTV HD was carried by DirecTV in the past, so it shouldn't be much of a challenge. Might take more than a janitor "flipping the switch." GolTV HD has great weekend coverage. It doesn't have anything midweek, save the odd qualifier or friendly. Fox pretty much has nothing on the weekends. It has the odd Mexican League match (Leon home games or something?) Midweek, it has Copa Sudamericana, but it has decided to show Champions League repeats (which are available on other channels and in HD on those other channels) rather than a number of live Copa Sudamericana matches. It also has Copa Libertadores, but that doesn't start until next year. Put what GolTV has on weekends and Fox Deportes has midweek together (I'm talking South American -- obviously Champions League is a different ballpark but it's available on other Fox channels), and you'd have quite a channel. If I had to choose, GolTV HD is way more important than Fox Deportes HD, at least until Copa Libertadores starts up, but I'll take both.

    I agree, the German Bundesliga is getting better every year and when you have the 2 teams that were in the champions league finals from the same league you should be able to watch in HD. What is the Copa Libertadores

    I am sure it has to do with contracts and price. DirecTV had GOLTV HD and dropped it. Usually when that happens, it is because DirecTV does not want to pay what the owner is asking. This one is very unusual, though, in that DirecTV still has the SD version.

    GolTV got the rights to broadcast the Tuesday, September 10 crucial world cup qualifier between Ukraine and England. Fox (who owns the rights to England national team home games as well as FA Cup), NBC (Premier League), and BeIN (England Football League, League Cup) are apparently asleep as far as a la carte rights to games. (Unless GolTV has some pre-existing rights deal to show Ukraine national team home games -- doubt it.) It's also showing Ireland-Sweden live this Friday (also crucial). In addition to the England game on Tuesday, it is also showing Kazakhstan-Sweden live on Tuesday and Austria-Ireland and Faroe Islands-Germany on same-day delay. England and Ireland have fairly large followings in the USA and it's crazy that these games, which are crucial to deciding whether England or Ireland will compete in Brazil 2014 (which will be on ABC/ESPN in English) will only be available to people with a Spanish base package or En Espan~ol add-on, and only in SD at that. DTV (and other carriers to be fair) must have thought GolTV was dead in the water after BeIN got the La Liga rights, but GolTV has really come on strong. I know it's a "niche" channel, but every channel not currently in HD is niche. That's very strong programming available to a very limited amount of people and in SD only. I hope the English and Irish fans raise hell.

    Let's assume he was being amusing.
    Oddly enough this comes at a time when Jason Sedakis of SNL fame is doing a series to pump up some interest in European football.
    The American version, North, that is, feet are employed to kick the ball on occasion, as well as propel one about the playing field. The early versions of the game had a lot more kicking than we do now, a bit closer to rugger than footie, though.

    For anyone complaining about all the PPV and infomercial channels we have, take a look at the latest SixtoReport or browse the guide to see all the PPV channels that don't have movies on until 6am tommorow as well as the infomercial channels that are off air until 9pm
