We need beIN Sport!!!

Why AT&T don't have beIN Sport? I regret to have AT&T! I can't watch the most important soccer games. Someone knows if AT&T will offer beIN Sport soon?

We switch from DirecTV just because to have HD without to pay extras for each box. But the lady operator laid when she said that beIN Sports was included in the package.

Barcelona Malaga..for example... or yeaterday Argentina- Colombia... no Fox Sports, no even Gol TV... is incredible!!! I'm furious!  We are thinking next month switch back to DirecTV... or even Comcast have it!


U-verse does have both Fox Soccer Channel (channel 654/1654) and Gol TV (channel 656/1656).

 

By the way, Comcast only offers the SD version of beIN Sport in it's English packages, and DirecTV only offers Gol TV in it's Spanish packages.

 

No TV provider has it all when it comes to features or programming.  Choose the one that comes closest to giving the things that are most important to you (i.e. no HD fee on extra boxes or beIN Sport).

"Might be a problem as it's owned by Al Jazerra and Turner Broadcasting System, a division of Time Warner."

Turner has nothing to do with BeIN Sport, despite what somebody put on Wikipedia.

For the same reason that all channels on U-verse are not on DirecTV.  AT&T and DirecTV are two separate companies. The only relationship that exists is a reseller's agreement which allows AT&T to sell DirecTV service to AT&T customers.

I just moved to St. Louis, MO. I would like to know if AT&T is planning on adding BeIN Sports HD. This is a soccer channel that is about one year old that shows major european soccer games (Leagues from Spain and Italy) and also U.S. National team world cup away qualifying games. I believe you should add this channel. I am sure you have received many requests already so you know there is a demand for it. Verizon, Directv, Dish and other major providers are already carrying this channel. Although soccer may not have higher ratings in the U.S. yet, adding this channel will increase your subscribers (switching from other satelite/cable companies) and will make happier some of your current and future customers (including myself, I am only waiting for you to add BeIN to sign up). I dont mind paying a premium price to watch my favorite soccer team playing twice a week. Please consider this request and provide me with an honest response. Thank you

No one on this forum can help you with any information concerning if and when U-Verse will be adding beIn Sports. We are all subscribers just like you. Generally, we do not find out if there is an addition to the U-Verse lineup until that channel shows up on screen either in announcement form or actually on.

 

Place your request for beIn Sports here:   http://uversechannels.att.com/

AT&T is aware that there are subscribers who would like to have beIn Sports carried on U-Verse. It is a matter of dollars and placement to be agreed upon by the two parties. Place your request for beIn Sports here: http://uversechannels.att.com/

A little birdie told me that AT&T and BeIN had fully negotiated for the TV channels. When it came time for the online portion, negotiations fell apart and someone walked away from the table.

I could be wrong, but I had heard that BeIN English channel was supposed to be on U-300 and the Spanish language channel was supposed to be on the Spansh package and possibly the Sports Pack.

So dwinth, your answer means that nobody from customer service at u-verse reads this... Unless you work for them..
Also, how many times do we need to place a request in order to get the channel?

beIN sport does have an authenticated streaming service for Time Warner and Brighthouse customers that was launched around April or May of this year.  The streaming service is called beIN Sport Play. That service was not available when the network launched August 2012.

Correct. There are a few AT&T employees that will post on these forums, but even they couldn't tell you what negotiations are ongoing with AT&T.

I just checked bein sport play. Didnt know they had it. Now all we need is access... Since at&t wont add the channel anytime soon, it might be easier to make new friends using time warner or brighthouse so they can share their accounts

U-Verse is not getting BeIN any time soon. Just watch the EPL in NBC Sports Network and its sister stations if you want soccer. And if you download the NBC Sports Live Extra app to your smartphone you can watch every single blessed EPL match!

You are not going to get any "inside" information in these forums.  Even if the few AT&T employees that post in here knew, they could not tell you.  AT&T does not make it known any negotiations that are going on.  If they are working on adding the channel it will just show up one day and a few weeks later you may get an announcement from AT&T.  We first learned about NBA Center Court when it showed up early by mistake on Titantv's web guide.

What day are you planning for this massive exodus? Will it be necessary to cross the Red Sea during the massive exodus from U-Verse? Let us know how many people you take with you on the massive exodus from U-Verse.  I doubt that the number of  people who would leave U-Verse because it does not have beIn Sports in it's lineup will be very significant. I would say it will be a microscopic number.

Well, I had UVerse in San Jose for three years, and had to give it up when I moved to SF. We didn't discover bein until we were here and found it on Comcast. As soon as Uverse was available here in San Francisco, I signed up with an install date of June 14, and a Comcast cancellation date of June 14. I was out of the country just a few days earlier when I found out that Uverse didn't have bein. It was a definite dealbreaker, as I told the UVerse rep on the phone on 6/13 (and sadly, the Comcrap rep, too - I'd LOVE to get rid of them, but won't do it without bein.

We have four wireless phones on an AT&T plan we've had for nearly a decade now. I have no desire to switch. I'd pay more for UVerse, because overall I'm satisfied with AT&T.

"Mass exodus" - not exactly, but one cancelled order that'd otherwise be good for several years. I'd certainly encourage others who want bein to bail if AT&T doesn't get with the program here, though. It never occurred to me that they wouldn't have it, honestly.

As soon as Uverse was available here in San Francisco, I signed up with an install date of June 14, and a Comcast cancellation date of June 14. I was out of the country just a few days earlier when I found out that Uverse didn't have bein. It was a definite dealbreaker, as I told the UVerse rep on the phone on 6/13 (and sadly, the Comcrap rep, too - I'd LOVE to get rid of them, but won't do it without bein.

We have four wireless phones on an AT&T plan we've had for nearly a decade now. I have no desire to switch. I'd pay more for UVerse, because overall I'm satisfied with AT&T.

"Mass exodus" - not exactly, but one cancelled order that'd otherwise be good for several years. I'd certainly encourage others who want bein to bail if AT&T doesn't get with the program here, though. It never occurred to me that they wouldn't have it, honestly.


Always thoroughly check the channel lineup before you sign up with a television service provider. Never assume that a channel that you want is on the new service. Each provider has it's own separate list of channels, and what may be on one provider may not be on another provider.

In addition, never trust what a sales representative tells you. Check out the channel linup on your own.

 

It sounds like that it is not that important to you that you do not have beIn Sports because you posted two months ago that you would leave U-Verse if beIn was not included; yet, you are still here. I hope you stay.

Good for you.  I'm a new subscriber and did not check (I had the dish and it had beIN), and am looking at my contract termination date.  BeIN should be on the menu.

U-Verse has a 30 day money back guarantee.  To cancel, call 1-800-288-2020 and say "Cancel my service."  There are steps involved to return your equipment, you may want to verify them with the agent.

What a wonderful first post, one with a threat in it. How long have you been a U-Verse subscriber? I hoped you checked before you subscribed that U-Verse did not have beIN Sports. If not, then you have yourself to blame. With time, there is a chance that U-Verse will add beIN as part of it's lineup.

 

When is your deadline for U-Verse to add beIN Sports? I hope that you are not a one post one and done wonder, and will respond to my questions.

You have to wonder how many of these OPWs are the same person.
