GolTV has bolstered its lineup, adding programming around teams from the English Premier League and Portugal's Primeira Liga.

The soccer service, which is available in both English and Spanish, has secured the rights to all home matches of Benfica, the reigning champion of Premeira Liga. Under the two-year deal, financial terms of which were not disclosed, GolTV will broadcast the club's matches played at Estadio da Luz stadium in Lisbon.

Gol's agreement with Everton calls for a three-hour programming block. Everton TV comprises a pre-game segment, a match featuring Everton FC, and a post-game show.  Based in Liverpool,  Everton FC holds the EPN  record of 110 seasons in the first division, and has earned nine Champions Leagues titles.

Both Benfica and Everton TV properties will be part of GolTV regularly scheduled matches.

“For more than a decade, GolTV has been committed to bringing the best leagues, teams and tournaments to U.S. soccer fans. The addition of these new properties will further solidify and strengthen our position as a sports broadcast leader,” said Rodrigo Lombello, GolTV CEO.  “We’re excited about our new partnership with two of the best teams in the UEFA and the opportunity to bring these high-profile matches to our viewers and media partners.”  

GolTV programming also delivers an array highlights, news magazine and entertainment shows, plus exclusive action from Mexico’s Liga Ascenso MX, the U.S. Open Cup and International FIFA matches and tournaments.
