Reports have then adding three Mpeg4 channels in the next few weeks.  In the case mentioned it is for one of the extra cost mlb and Center Ice channels.  But it may mean some more in switches to Mpeg4 sometime in the future.  At his point they probably are trying to limit the need to do mass box switchouts of the 6xxx boxes.

Verizon evidently doesn't want to add GolTV in HD, as I see the same question being asked on the internet over the years and Verizon hasn't taken action. The only way for Verizon to take our request seriously is if we masively drop service and switch to a diffrent provider at the same time. If they had thousands of subscribers dropping service, they may bring us the channels we want to pay for. I started a petition online that I will have somebody in Verizon read once we have enough signatures. Please come and sign it. You can find it at http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/verizon-fios-add-goltv-in-hd.html. If you sign it, you have to be prepared to actually drop them if the deadline is met and Verizon hasn't even planned on ading GolTV HD. Thank you!

Not going to happen. Gol tv and other soccer channels are now in danger of being dropped because of the addition of BeIn sports. Verizon now offers both BeIn sports channels in hd and if you have them right now go compare the look of the hd Bein channels to the gol tv sd feeds. There is no contest as to which one not only has the best games but also the best picture. Comcast only offers the BeIn sports channels in sd and when they added it they dropped gol tv. The channel is now seen by many people as being pointless to have so gol tv and a few other soccer channels whose contracts are coming up for renewal are probably not going to get renewed. If gol tv had not dropped the ball and lost the rights to all of those teams who they had deals to carry them on their channel then BeIn would not have become the channel that people are demanding that their tv provider add. It was gol tv who did this to themselves where almost everything that everyone wants to watch is on BeIn sports. Sports bars all advertise a lot of these world cup qualifiers and there are 4 major games that will only be on the BeIn sports channels this friday where if someone does not have the channels they are going to have to pay to get into one of those places to see what a fios customer can see right now on their hd tv.

mm1,

That's not factually accurate about GolTV.  GolTV still has several South American leagues, to include Brazil's, which are very popular and they have the German Bundesliga, which is arguably the best league in the world right now..  Further, they just acquired the Dutch Eredivisie, which is currently rated in the top 5 of the world.  They are more than reputable.  Fox Soccer is a different matter but you are misinformed about GolTV.  Losing La Liga is not the end of the world for a soccer channel as the league offers FC Barcelona and Real Madrid but little else.

It is 2015? **bleep** can't u get goltv HD? I am paying plenty of money for your overpriced sports package. But I would be satisfied if the soccer I wanted was in HD. GOLTV offers it, I feel like I am paying for it, so why is my GOLTV still in SD? Come on and make all the soccer fans hapoy. Stop providing me a sports package that is not quite, bad enough to make me, leave. You good have happy customwrs, not customers that feel used.
