I am starting to panic a little about this. I had GolTV for the last 3 years and the coverage was terrible but at least there were 5 games per weekend, all the Bayern games and didn't have to deal with streaming. Now with FOX Sports, it's not even available in Canada unless something changes. Any options out there for us Canucks (prefer non-streaming as I always found the quality poor, inconsistent and I can't PVR the games). Thanks!

Just searched Bundesliga on ATT Uverse and found three entries. Two shows are broadcast on Fox Sports 2, Bundesliga Season Highlights and Bundesliga Top Goals (top goals first airs this Thursday morning at 9:30 Central) and the third show Goal!Bundesliga Specials airs on Fox Sports Plus which is an extra cost with Uverse. So I am pessimistic about Fox broadcasting, looks like we will probably have to pay to watch the matches. I wonder if its possible to mirror stream them with apple tv or other smart tvs?

They started their 2016 Bundesliga promos with a shot of a outdated kit and the guy considered last season's flop? Ok....

I just did a little bit of digging around the Fox Sports sister website, Fox Soccer Plus. Found out when Bayern open there season it will be 2:30 pm eastern in the states, Fox Soccer Plus will be airing a Bundesliga game at the same time. Right now they don't name the teams, but I'm perrty sure it's the Bayern game. Looks like Fox soccer plus is the only way to watch Bundesliga on U.S. television :( [urlhttp://www.foxsoccerplus.com/schedule][/url]

For Canadian customers on Bell I made a channel request to see if they could add Fox Sports 1 and they are currently processing that. I would suggest for any other Bell members that you do the same. It took two minutes with their online chat.

Not only do we have the variable of how good/bad the Fox coverage will be but also whether our Canadian service providers will even carry the channel. What a bummer. #-o

Can't see tweet? Click here!

$100/season to watch Bundesliga... compared to the PL being shown on NBC. This is NOT the way to grow a brand in the US, Bundesliga.... :evil:

Considering that I don't have cable, I'm ok with this. That's how I watch Champions League anyways

I've thought about it a bit, and on second thought, it's not really a terrible deal - you get both Bundesliga and CL matches. I still wish the BL was a bit more accessable to the casual fan, but for those of us who know about it, it's not bad...

On the comments section, someone mentioned that specific information about Bundesliga can't be released by Fox until August 1st when GolTv's contract officially runs out.
