Confirming the 08/01 date.

BTW:

GOL-HD will be broadcast in espanol (press 2) on its current channel 426 (foreign 400's), and will be simulcast in anglais (press 1) on 620 (sports 600's). Also everyone, 3LNB's as well as 5 LNB's, should be able to receive, unlike nearly all of the 400's, which are CONUS off of 119°, GOL (the other exception being Univision on 402) are CONUS off of 101°.

Has anyone been able to get channel 426 turn on to see what this goltv is about. I do realize it will be in spanish and you need to have an 5lnb dish.

You have to be subscribed to a Spanish language package to get the spanish version of GolTV. The English version is part of the Sports Pack

:lol: Yikes, Summer isn't even a month old yet and doesn't end until the latter half of September. It will happen in the Summer, don't fret.

I think you'll hear something positive about the date very very soon.
