DirecTV pulls plug on GolTV

NEW YORK -- DirecTV is dropping GolTV on Thursday after the network's loss of rights to Spain's La Liga.

GolTV had held La Liga rights since the 2004-5 season, when it took over from Fox. It sublicensed some games to ESPN Deportes and ESPN3.com.

DirecTV last month started broadcasting beIN Sport, the Al Jazeera-owned network that has bought U.S. rights to La Liga, Italy's Serie A and France's Ligue 1.

GolTV still has rights to Germany's Bundesliga and the U.S. Open Cup final.

"As a result of DirecTV's new relationship with the Emir of the State of Qatar and founder of Al Jazeera, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, DirecTV intends to remove GolTV from its Sports Pack effective Sept. 13,"GolTV said in a statement.
