You can pay for Fox Soccer 2Go for $99.99 per year. This comes out to $8.33 a month for every single Bundesliga match every matchday with replays. It also includes all Champions League matches with replays. I would say that is a heck of a deal. Once we (Bundesliga watchers) prove that the product we watch is valuable to Fox Sports, they will start giving it more air-time on FS1.



See guys, you can help bayern to increase their tv rights income, that is the principal goal of Bayern USA tour :lol:

Someone pointed out that Fox doesn't want to put out all the bells and whistles early in case there's not enough viewership as well as hoping people in areas where broadcasters don't provide Fox Sports 2 and Fox Soccer Plus to subscribers complain to their cable providers. If this is true then I don't know what they're thinking because how many people would be even aware of this fact? Apparently, there's also no reason to not air live games on FS1 since there's nothing of note airing on Saturday mornings on FS1. I live in Canada so I don't know much about it but it looks like a big letdown to soccer lovers in the states.

Yeah the whole thing is a big letdown. I'll concede that $100 for a whole season of Bundesliga and CL is not a bad deal, but Fox doesn't market it at all. It's great for those of us who know about it (well, not great, but okay) - but what about those people who don't know about the Bundesliga? That's where this is the biggest failure. Boo Fox.

I followed them last week for like one day before they flooded my twitter feed :) It's a parody account.

Quick question to anyone with FS2G: I assume that the entire $99.99 yearly pass fee is charged to your payment method immediately upon subscription; is this correct, or is it charged later/in smaller payments?

Well I've bit the bullet and I'm trying to buy the 1year subscription... but they won't accept my credit card payment. I hate you Fox, so much.

It's a one time payment.

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!

I have Direct TV/sports package.... which includes Fox Sports 2 HD..... so I'm assuming I'm in good shape and will get most of the games on TV, seeing as they'll likely want Bayern on TV as much as possible

You will need Fox Soccer Plus to watch the Friday matches as well as one of the Saturday matches and probably both of the Sunday matches (especially when college and pro football start). So you are not in good shape. Bayern play on the first Friday, so either buy Fox Soccer 2 Go or Fox Soccer Plus.

Thanks! Just saw this too. It's going to be 18-20 dollars a month but well worth it to get to see 4-5 matches a week (and of course all of Bayern's games in HD).

If I was a Rogers customer I would get all the streams as well, but being a Bell customer you don't get access to their app.

Either way, ~200$ a year to get to see my favourite team will work for me (as a bonus now I will get all the CL games and all the EPL games too).
