Chicago -- Upstart soccer network Gol TV has scored a pact with EchoStar
Communications Corp. for carriage on the "America's Top 150" package on its Dish
Network.

The network -- which has been distributed on Dish's Spanish-language packages
since February -- will bow on America's Top 150 June 11, according to Gol TV
chief operating officer Roger Huguet.

Deal terms were not disclosed.

The audio feed on Gol's programming on America's Top 150 will be in English,
versus the service's usual Spanish-language presentation.

The channel proffers futbol fare from Italy's Serie A circuit, as well as top
leagues in Ecuador, Peru , Uruguay, Honduras and El Salvador.
