    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).

    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.

    Oh cool, you wouldn’t happen to have comcast in Chicago would you? And know what channel GolTV is?

  14. Andrew

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