    Well, folks, it has been two years now since GOL TV went off Dish Network. I personally miss watching the German Bundesliga and FIFA Football Mundial. Has there been any world as to when (or if) GOL TV returns?

    DirecTV will be adding the HD feed on Wednesday. GolTV is available in DirecTV's $12.99 sports Pack, which can be added on to their low end "Choice" package or is included in the high end "Premier". HD Access $10 extra with a new customer offer for "free" for new Premier subscribers.

    DISH Network? The return of Gol TV is not expected.

    Its kind of Strange how Dish has FSC in HD and and Direct has GolTV HD and niether one seems to be looking at having both FSC and GolTV in HD.
    Dish seems happy with FSC and Direct with GolTV.
    Granted I am selfish and not only want both FSD and GolTV in HD, I want FSC+ in HD as well. Rugby season is kicking off soon as well, and the Ospreys should do well this year.
    Niether Dish nor Direct have moved on FSC+.

    Is GolTV part of the old Rainbow Entertainment?

    IIRC, FSC is supposed to launch in HD on DirecTV Wednesday 8/11 according to SatRacer postings. FSC+ in HD is rumored to maybe also be coming as a part time/game only channel on DirecTV.

    My post was clear that it was being added to the other company and is very unlikely to come back to DISH in any definition at any time soon.

    You can watch the Bundesliga on German Sports, part of the German Language pack on Dish. You get the "Konferenz" on saturday morning and then every single 1. Bundesliga, 2. Bundesliga nd Austrian Bundesliga game in entirety on a time-delay basis. A very sweet scenario, but expensive at $30 per month...
