    Here's the link to the TV schedule for US Gold Cup:

    http://www.us.terra.com/goldcup2005/us/interna/0,,OI540660-EI4900,00.html

    Unless this changes, all of the US first round games and likely knockout matches (until the finals) will be on Telefutura. Don't know about where you live, but this is a pretty uncommon channel around here.

    We can't even get an English broadcast of our continent's confederation championship.

    No English broadcast is pretty common for this tournament, luckily I have Telefutura through Dish Network...

    There should be a Telefutura Channel in DC (if that's where the poster lives).

    Telefutura was added last month to my TWC lineup here in Raleigh, so other TWC subscribes might want to check and see if they get it.

    Does anyone know if they offer Telefutura on DirecTV anymore? I thought I used to have it, but I just checked and I'm not sure it's there anymore. Thanks.

    WFDC 14 is a Telefutura station, and should be available via broadcast TV in DC. My girlfriend gets it via antenna in Adams Morgan, and I get it via RCN cable in Takoma Park.

    Most major tv markets in the country carry Telefutura and if you have dish or Dirtectv the you must get through your local channels. FSC might show some games(like theyre doing with the confed cup) but tefutura should avaliable everywhere

    I'm unaware of TeleFutura ever having been available nationally on DirecTV. I know folks with local TeleFutura stations get TeleFutura, but I subscribe to Para Todos service and I never recall getting it.

    Telefutura is on KFSF, channel 66 in the San Francisco area. If you have DirecTV's local channels package, you get this channel.

    It's not.

    In fact, several local TeleFutura affiliates are "low power" stations and cable/satellite providers are not required to offer such stations.

    I live in the state with the fastest growing latino population, and the metropolitan area in the state with the fastest growing latino population. We don't have a TeleFutura affiliate (though some lists show low power Durham-26 as begin TeleFutura). As chayes pointed out, TWC recently added TeleFutura and Galavision to their local lineup, but DirecTV does not offer a national feed for TeleFutura. As a DirecTV subscriber, I'm screwed.

    I'm fvcked. We are not privilaged enough in the great state of KY to get such a channel. This blows. I think I get every other spanish speaking network and I don't get this one. This would be my luck. It's early, but any known webcasts?

    It's on DirectTV as part of the local packages. In DC it's channel 14 on DirectTV. Also, it's one of the few stations that you can pick up fairly well over the air in DC with a rabbit-ear antenna (also channel 14)

    You're in a black hole for Univision/Telefutura. There's only one station in the entire state according to their website:

    OH Cleveland WQHS-TV 61
