  1. Yea, it’s on Comcast. If you subscribe to FSC, GolTV should be part of the same package. Excellent, excellent news here!

  2. Comcast Chicago has GolTv on 268, right next to FSC.

    Excellent, nice to see a major pre-season tournament on US television. Another sign of the big interest in our favorite sport.

  3. Per Time Warner’s New York website, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Mt. Vernon will get GOL TV on 8/6 as an addition to the sports tier (which is an extra $2.95/month).

  4. No it will NOT be available, effective 1st August DirectTV will not be broadcasting. You can see it clearly on GolTV’s website on the homepage.

  5. Actually, it’s DISH NETWORK…….Gol TV is still available on Direct….Channel 614 (which I have….and will be watching the Gooners tomorrow)
