In case people do not know or have not checked yet the final gol tv channel which is in spanish is set to be dropped tomorrow according to a message that is in the message center on people's set top boxes. In some areas it may be put off for the day after that but the bottom line is in 48 hours there will be no more gol tv offered by verizon. Now the question remains if verizon will even remove it from their guide or will they allow channel 1523 gol tv espanol to remain there like they have with channel 313 gol tv english which was dropped in may? Perhaps they will keep it listed there to make it seem they have it to make people believe it is still available when it is not to try to get them to go with another tv package.
I just stumbled over the horrific news that my beloved "FC Bayern-Channel" (Gol TV) was dropped from the Ultimate Package by checking the messages on my DVR. I nearly fell off the sofa.
Now the good news: 1523 GOL TV WILL remain available as part of the Spanish Package. I just chatted with Verizon about this topic online and was assured that GOL TV would remain a part of that Package. I was able to sign up online for the Spanish Package for only $7.49/month for the first year (50% off).
GOL TV is gone. So no more reason for me to keep the Ultimate Package.
I don´t pay extra for one channel which is only in SD and in spanish, when it use to be in english and with no extra cost in my tv subscription.
I will downgrade my TV contract with fios, GOL TV was the only reason why I got the Ultimate Package anyway.
But Thank you I can save some money, and btw. the entire GOL TV issue has started me thinking and looking for other solutions.
And I found better ways to watch my beloved bundesliga.
