I think it's GREAT they started showing live games from the Spanish League, I don't have VOOM but this makes me really consider on getting it.
Does anybody know what is the deal they have since I thought GolTV had exclusive rights for the Spanish League in the US?
Maybe the rights for HD are different from regular TV rights?
