GOL-TV leaving DirecTV Sports-Pack 9/13
Bad news for DirecTV Sports Package subscribers as GOL-TV will be a Spanish Package channel only starting September 13th, 2012. The news is not unexpected after GOL-TV lost La Liga rights to newcomer BeInSports. The move by DirecTV means fans of Bundesliga, Brasileiro, Argentine soccer and other events will have to subscribe to the Spanish Package to enjoy their favorite leagues. Here is a copy of the e-mail sent to subscribers:
