Dish TV adds two lifestyle football channels to its bouquet

Dish TV has given the football lovers in India a chance to celebrate. The country's first Direct-to Home service has added two 'lifestyle football' channels, GOAL TV1 and GOAL TV 2 to its bouquet on Thursday. GOALTV™, a dedicated football platform offering Asian audiences unrivalled coverage of top European soccer, has tied up with DishTV for distribution in India.

Football fans can now watch the two channels dedicated to the sport 24 hours a day. However, the subscription prices for the channels have not been announced so far.

Sunil Khanna, CEO, Dish TV, said, "This one is especially for the thousands of football fans in our country. For the people who are passionate about the game, GOALTV is the right destination. As our tag-line goes, DishTV is all about enjoying your passion. With this addition, we have taken another step towards providing quality and niche entertainment in the country."

While GOALTV 1 showcases Manchester United, Arsenal and the Live Scottish Premier League, GOALTV 2 brings Chelsea, Liverpool, Live Dutch, Live French and the UEFA Champions League to the viewers.

Thomas Kressner, CEO of GOALTV, said, "It was a natural association between the two. DishTV is all about being passionate about your interests, and GOALTV is dedicated to passionate football fans. Given the popularity of football in Asia and the fact that we provide dedicated club programming, as well as all the season's big matches, the GOALTV channels are catering to the millions of dedicated fans in the continent."

With the addition, the total strength of television channels offered by Dish TV has gone up to 112. In the coming days, Dish viewers will be able to access the Internet. They will also get to record their favourite programmes with the Personal Video Recorder and access certain channels for a limited period with Pay-Per-View through Dish TV.
