    My goodness. How can it be possible for one carrier to carry both la Liga and Serie A?

    According to the CFO,

    - if a carrier blows its budget on Serie A, then it can't have any more money for la Liga
    - if a carrier plans to negotiate for la Liga, then it should have left the weekend afternoon timeslots open for la Liga. GolTV has Serie A, so it doesn't have the weekend timeslots open...

    Because of these two reasons, Ollie told us that it was a lock that ESPN International wasn't going to get la Liga. Now you are telling us that GolTV will do the same thing that Ollie said a carrier can't do?

    I said ESPN Int'l had the budget for either Serie A or La Liga, but not both.

    I didn't say that for Gol TV.

    ESPN Int'l works from a tight budget from Disney, a large company with multiple layers of management involved in making decisions.

    In contrast, Gol TV is a startup owned by an Uruguayan outfit. It doesn't have nearly as many layers of management as Disney/ESPN Int'l.

    I think la liga is going to be on goltv.
    they recently started showing some goals from la liga followed by a bullfight scene and a message saying "coming soon". so I gathered that it had to do with la liga.

    Is GolTv available on SKY systems from Mexico? Or is it only available on Dish network?

    Once again, I want to know how you know about ESPN Intl's budget. This sort of thing is company confidential. Did you obtain such information legally or illegally? or are you one of their executives? If so, why would you disclose confidential information of your own company?

    The point is, if you can't disclose a legitimate source, your claim about them "having no budget for la Liga" is simply not believable.

    No SKY. Dish Network only. But it was also available for free on c-band satellite. Granted I haven't checked lately if it's still free but you might want to check that out.

    sunday:malaga-real madrid 1:30 pm (pdt) delayed an hour because of juventus-roma which starts at 11:30 am (pdt).

    well at least the hell is over for now! I for one am very excited to be able to see games on a regular basis. Last year was hell as far as I am concerned.

    Here is one big "ATTA BOY" for GOL TV!!!

    this deal sucks...the only cable provider I can find is here in NYC on Cablevision.
    The rest is via satelite.

    Why couldn't they ink with a nationally distributed channel :(

    anyone know anything about NCTC besides this:

    What did you expect? Three La Liga matches per week on CBS? Ths is great news to me and I don't even have a TV!! Just get out of your house and watch it in a pub or restaurant!!

    Yes, I really thought CBS had a chance. Mel Karmazin is a huge fan of La Liga.

    See, I've said here numerous times. No american soccer fan should settle for watching European soccer on a cable channel, let alone an obscure satellite channel like GolTV.

    We should all aim high: la Liga and Serie A on the networks. Heck, we won't even settle for la Liga/Serie A taking a back seat to the NFL or the baseball postseason. We should all look forward to the day that CBS asks the NFL to change their kick-off time because they have to broadcast, say, the Basque derby or the Milan derby.

    I am glad that someone else shares the vision here.
    Let the fight begin...

    As an American (U.S.) soccer fan I am happy to watch La Liga where ever I can find it. If it was not for an "obscure satellite channel" like GolTV we would not able able to see it at all in the US and Canada this season.

    Lets all put our money where our mouth is. We have been bitching and moaning about not being able to see La Liga in the Americas this season and now that we can we are still bitching and moaning about it? Lets be realistic. While we would all love to see European Soccer on the big networks it is just not going to happen. Not in my lifetime anyway. You will never overtake the NFL, NBA or even (yawn) MLB with a non home grown sporting league. It will simply never have that appeal in this country no matter how hard we sell it.

    I am not wild about Gol TV only being shown on Dish Network as we have Adelphia cable in my house and they do not carry GolTV. (I have sent numerous emails to them asking them to add it) My wife looked at me like I was crazy when I told her I was going to put a dish back up so I could bring in one single channel. But at this point I am ecstatic!! 3 games a week including Real Madrid and Barca.... let the party begin!!!

    indeed, but i have a suggestion for goltv. if the commentary is going to be made available in english, let someone who does speak clear and crisp english do it. saturday's games were done by some english commentator, very good; but sunday's was done by someone whose english was rather hesitant (and who even managed to nick casillas as "carlos" casillas). surely the lad was very eager,but it is not the same to comment a footie match in a language that is not yours or you dont quite manage very well: the action is often fast-paced and sometimes the right words to convey an image may not be readily mustered. that's my only peeve, otherwise, i am rrrreally very happy.
