Soccer fans who are subscribers to AT&T U-Verse, take note. GolTV has been removed from the sports tier package, and has been moved to the Latino package instead. The move, which is certainly not going to please soccer fans, means that many subscribers will miss out on GolTV’s coverage of the Bundesliga, Eredivisie, Super Clasico and international matches. AT&T U-Verse originally added GolTV in 2006. However, the launch of beIN SPORT last year has forced many TV providers to prioritize beIN SPORT, which has rights to more major leagues, over GolTV.
GolTV will begin televising the 2013-14 season of Eredivisie, the Dutch national soccer league, on August 2.

Details and TV schedules are limited, but as soon as we find out more information, we’ll be sure to share it with ... Read more
