    Attn. WOY, DirecTV adds GolTV

    WOY, I know that you are a big soccer fan. This is some good news. Italian Serie A, Spain's La Liga, UEFA Cup, plus a bunch of South American Leagues. Sounds good to me. I also read that they have signed an exclusive deal with the Brazilian League. That could put a crimp in Fox Soccer Channel.

    24-Hour All Soccer Network will be Available to Customers Nationwide in February 2005 in both Spanish and English

    Since Murdoch owns both Fox and Directv, I'm sure there is coordination between both.

    Good stuff, in fact Fox Sports World is now called the Fox Soccer Channel.

    BTW did you see that Man U game yesterday? Those pesky Italians moved the ball all damn day... it was a purty game.

    Milan totally outclassed Man U yesterday. They are, along with Barca, my favorites to win the title.

    Gol TV is great. I used to have it before my HOA made me take my Dish Network satellite down and I had to revert to Time Warner. At least I get Fox Sports en Espanol...that's something, but Lord I miss my Gol TV! Can't wait until I move to Cincy and can get DirecTV. Gol was the only reason I chose Dish the first time around.
