    answering my own question here - just read the press release - Spanish Feed is part of hispanic packages not sports pack

    BTW, just checked out the list of opening La Liga matches on Saturday / Sunday and it is pretty much live La Liga all day with French League on delay.

    Exciting stuff for La Liga fans if you have Direct TV.

    Real Madrid in the first game Sunday followed by the Barcelona game and I forgot who was in the third Sunday game. Good stuff.

    They just secured the rights about 10 days ago or so.... good chance they haven't setup any feeds yet and the programming for the coming 2 weeks is probably already set.

    iPhone guide is not updated yet btw, will probably happen overnight or so?

    And DISH Network just announced carriage, although I am not sure if they carry it in HD.

    Yeah, I'm not sure where they're at with that right now. Someone asked them about the Championship On Facebook and their response stated the only leagues "confirmed" are La Liga, Serie A, Italian Cup, Ligue 1, Copa Del Rey,Copa America 2015, South American WCQ, and home of Barca TV. Nothing about the recently announced rights to the Capital One Cup or nPower Championship. They went on to say there will be other events and sports announced ..

    I read where they have the rights to the UEFA qualifiers (leading up to the 2016 UEFA euro tournament), and UEFA world cup qualifiers (leading up to 2014 World Cup).

    Is this correct?

    Well, I'm going to start my own sports channel in Central America, and get American rights to all top notch European content.
    It's going to be called beOUT Sport, and we're going to compete against and completely take down beIN Sport.
    They won't be able to compete against my network.

    "Get out of the action, stay out, with beOUT Sport"

    Central America hmmm? So, your sponsor is going to be a drugs-baron instead of an oil-magnate? :D

    Is subscribing to the Sports Package the only way to get 620 in HD?

    If so, has anybody complained to DirecTV that we were previously able to watch La Liga matches in HD without the Sports Pack, and now we have to subscribe to it?

    I have Mas Ultra therefore I get 426 SD and not 620, nor 620 in HD.

    Thanks,
    Mariano

    The rights for La Liga switched from channel A to channel B, DirecTV has no direct influence on that.

    Also, it is not even sure if the beIN Sport Espanol even *exists* in HD. If it doesn't exist in HD, DirecTV cannot carry it.

    If it DOES exist in HD (which, again, I have no clue about) your best bet would be to call DirecTV and ask for it to be added in HD.

    Thanks for the response. So is there a way to get beIN Sport (Eng or Spa) in HD without subscribing to the Sports Package?

    Not at this time, no.

    beIN Sports on channel 620 is in HD, and part of the Sports Package.
