According to recent official posts, we should be getting GolTV HD on August 4th and FSC HD on August 11th. Fantastic news for soccer fans on D*. Finally.

:D :D :D

I hope this is both channels in HD.
Would suck having to watch Plus in SD still.
I wonder.

They just added...

In addition to adding FOX Soccer Channel HD, we’re working to add live matches in HD on Fox Soccer Plus.


So maybe FSC+ part-time HD?

Hmmm...I'm not sure that I will make the jump. I don't want to jump to Premier and adding the Sports Pack ($7.00) and Fox Soccer Plus ($14.99) is a bit steep.

Heartbreaking, after repeatedly e-mailing Directv to add the footie channels in HD, I just lost my service due to a line of sight issue! Stuck with Crapcast and I have little hope for either channel appearing in HD there. Luck of the Irish me arse! Enjoy you lucky football fans.

Excellent news. Watching the EPL games in HD on ESPN2 makes the games in SD on FSC unwatchable.

Sat,

for a real festivus the separate fee for FSP needs to go.

With espn now having some games, 2 separate fees to get the remainder is even less sustainable.

This is fantastic news -

Agree with others that hopefully FS+ gets pulled into the Sports Pack. Not worth the extra $15 on its own by a long shot.

So Gol TV on August 4 and FSC on August 11. Are those the only 2 coming next month? A simple yes or no would suffice.

This kinda wraps it up for sports services...Great news on these additions!! well we knew of GOL already..

really the only other ones left are -->
ESPN Deportes and Classic and they do not beam in HD at present..nor do i know if they ever will..
(INSERT HERE your copy & paste here if you've heard anywhere of these channels ever beaming in HD anytime soon*)

so GOL & the Fox Soccer channels ... kinda wraps it up ..Hooray !!! prepping up the festivus pole once again


Then the HD focus & rants will be on remaining premiums & basics. But we'll probably see more PPV HD's 1st. If Mad Men couldn't flip AMC to the front of the line, not likely anything else will come before hand..unless the guru's here say otherwise..


* I've said this before in many posts, soon in the DirecTV world means "not now" now go away son...ya bother me...
that's in my W.C. Fields immitation
