    That's nice. But isn't Gol TV only available if you buy the Sports Pack? Is it even carried on something other than DirectTV?

    I get it in my cable package, though it probably varies by provider and location.

    Same with me. I can get it with Cablevision, but I have to buy it as part of a sports package that includes a bunch of regional FOX channels.

    Which probably means I'd have to go back to DirectTV to get it here. Not that I have a problem with that, as I enjoyed DirectTV. It's just that right now I'm saving a huge amount of money on my local phone costs by packaging phone, internet and TV through the evil Time Warner. Who knows. Maybe they'll pick it as the hispanic population grows.

    You should check out www.justin.tv

    People stream all sorts of soccer matches on that site and the quality is usually quite good.

    I, too, go with TW for their awesome deal. When I left Dish I was paying $120 per month just for satellite, now I'm paying $100 for cable and internet. When they dropped Gol and refused to add MLB Network I knew I had to change to either DirecTV or cable. TW made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I do miss Gol and Setanta badly, though. At least I have Setanta Broadband.

    Yeah, I tried to see if I could get Gol streaming online, but it doesn't look like it. It's a shame because I'd really like to watch some Bundesliga and La Liga. I wonder what happens if Setanta goes under. I wouldn't mind signing up for the broadband, but I fear they're on the way out.

    FSC should pounce on the Bundesliga once it is available. I agree, Setanta is on the way out. If they lose the rest of their EPL contract they are toast. They've already lost the AFL which was huge draw for Australian ex-pats and are on the verge of losing Super XIV and Heineken Cup Rugby altogether. In other words, they are in deep, deep trouble.

    That would be nice, but I think the Bundesliga just reupped with Gol TV through 2012. With Setanta, some EPL games and the Scottish Premier League would be up for grabs.

    I must say that it seems like ESPN is slowly coming around on soccer, so maybe by the time some of these contracts are up, they might be willing to put in a bid for some European games.

    Simmons said on one of his podcasts that the 2010 World Cup is a "company priority". I'm hoping that they will extend that focus to MLS and other soccer entities.

    Looks like they might not have as much money as was thought.

    I wonder if those banks received any funds from the AIG bailout.

    Anyone see this?

    While I think it would be great to see some matches from La Liga next season, something tells me ESPN is going to stick all these games on Deportes or ESPN360.com, which I can't get because I have Time Warner.

    Oooh, look at this one too.

    http://www.soccerbyives.net/soccer_b...ings.html#more

    Too bad it doesn't appear to involve airing games in the US yet. I hope this and the news about La Liga indicates that ESPN is getting serious about soccer and will try to get more matches on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNClassic.
