    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.

    So maybe FSC+ part-time HD?

    Yeah. Hopefully the delayed EPL games will be HD as well.

    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.
