Why bein sports is being removed?
This channel is one of the only reasons I still have Directv. If this channel is not back I'll cancel DirecTV.

I and another person are referring to a new streaming service branded as ESPN+.
AFAIK, this content is NOT accessible via standard cable subscription packages.

The Sports Pack is worthless without Bein.
The Sports Pack is worthless without Bein.
That may be the case for you and some, but not for others. The Sports pack covers a variety. Over 35 Regional Sport Networks (RSN), and specialty channels like The Outdoor Channel. Some people like to compliment their seasonal sport subscriptions with the Sports Pack for the pre/post game for those out of market RSNs. Also your in-market RSNs are only included in Choice and above. So if in a package below Choice, it is usually cheaper to add the Sports Pack to get your in-market RSNs than raising the whole package (for Entertainment it depends on how much the RSN fee would be going to Choice on if package change or Sports pack would be cheaper). So it has its place, even if it is not for you.
DTV/AT&T can't drop channels only the channel owner can remove their feed otherwise they are in breach of the contract. DTV/AT&T would carry BeIN if they would return the feed. What the CSR meant is the channels and programing can change at any time.
Probably should start another thread on this, but I finally figured out that UEFA Champions league is carried by a NEW streaming service run by bleacher reports. They’re asking $80 for a season pass to watch all games. Select games are shown on TNT, yes, but during this period you may miss your teams game, so they also allow a $2.99 per game pass. Wild. AFAIK, we’ve never had the opportunity to watch all CL games.
Good morning @leomol,
We appreciate your feedback and it will be noted. AT&T is constantly striving to have the best channels for our customers, and we’re always updating and adding to our channels list.
Should you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach back out.

Viewers pay outrageous fees for hundreds of channels and, in my case and the case of most, watch less than a dozen. So when Direct TV drops Beinsport, viewers have no choice but to drop Direct TV (don't the corporate suits appreciate that La Liga is the "premier" soccer league?). I'm looking at alternatives to Direct TV and will make the switch shortly if Beinsport is not reinstated. Come on Direct TV, get smart before the viewer stampede gains momentum!

call bein sports, tell them to not up thier rate.
i dont want a price increase for some channel i dont watch
channel greed is getting out of hand
we need alacart
BEIN Sports wants to raise cost. DirecTV could just say yes and pass that cost onto the customers or continue negotiating to keep a reasonable rate to prevent further bill increases. All TV providers go through this as they do not own the channels, and those networks continuing raising their costs. If cost to operate business goes up, then their prices goes up as we have seen the last few years.
The players got to eat and fund their multiple homes so they want us to pay for it.
May come back? What are we talking about in terms of a rate increase? A couple of bucks? Five? I'd be willing to pay more, but if it doesn't come back and SOON, we'll dump Directv.
You may but not me.
Well you might be willing to pay more, but not the rest of us.
In the end it will only come back once DirecTV and Bein Sports come to an agreement. Hopefully it will not be long, but negotiations take as long as they need to.
I just call fios because I have internet whit them and they want to charge me $130 for both,I just prefer pay 5 to 10 more only for that channel please put the channel back this Sunday it’s the derby sevillano Real Betis - Sevilla
This channel is one of the only reasons I still have Directv. If this channel is not back I'll cancel DirecTV.I copy and paste from another DirecTV subscriber but I feel the same wayI will give you few days You don't bring back Bein Sports you are gone and I will work hard to convince people to cancel the DirecTV subscription #StopCarrierBarriers #KeepbeIN on DIRECTV
Only beIN Sports can choose to turn the channel back on as they own the broadcast rights. They like many other channels have done, prefer to hold their channel "hostage" in a attempt to raise costs. I like most do not want another channel adding to a higher bill. If you would like to contact Bein Sports and tell them you will pay extra for the rest of us that don't, go right ahead.
