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?

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


I wish I could find a channel that U-Verse does not have that I really want, and make threats to quit like the OPW's. Unfortunately, I cannot think of a channel out there that I really want that U-Verse does not have. Well there is one- The Houston- British Pac-12 Soccer Channel in HD.

U-verse had reached a tentative agreement to carry BeIN. But a dispute arose over the online services from BeIN and negotiations were terminated. The sides are far apart now as a result of AT&T basically choosing to walk out on them. [word filter avoidance] Other channels, such as Hallmark (more successful without U-Verse than with them) and NHL Network (AT&T refuses to carry Center Ice and move NHL Net to a lower tier), are very unlikely to ever return to U-Verse. Sorry for being a Debbie Downer here with bad news...just trying to keep it real.

Can you show a link that verifies your information about failed negotiations and failed agreements between AT&T and beIN Sports?

 

In addition, have you recieved any valid information from a link, an article, or an AT&T source that indicates that Hallmark and the NHL Network "are very unlikely to ever return to U-Verse"?

 

Please post your links in a reply so that we can see them, too.

Debby downer?  How about rumor monger.  You have provider no proof of any of your allegations or channel negotiations.  AT&T does not make any negotiation public so again, where's your proof.

This is just stuff I have heard and read. I will admit it is second hand info that I can't verify. I am a top tier U-Verse subscriber ( u-450 + HD tier) who wishes U-Verse would carry every channel out there...but I doubt it will ever happen.

And it won't happen with any other provider.

 

Reporting things that you cannot verify is not true reporting. Anyone can say anything.

I could be wrong but this announcement only increases the gap between att and al jazeera who own Bein sport: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-08-20/at-t-sued-over-refusal-to-carry-al-jazeera-cable-network.ht...

For me that Bloomberg link did not work but there is this.  AND a lot more, on Google.  AJ's tactics will either cause a "until Hades freezes over" rift or might push them to a settlement.  AJ is truly desiring to be carried.  Again, I hoped / wished that AT&T let us decide if we want AJ and Bein.

Not funny.  By the way, U-verse does not add new channels on a Sunday.

Don't worry, Ryan, someone will still find something to complain about concerning beIN and soccer. Smiley Very Happy

Awesome.  I had a feeling this might come through around when the Fox Sports launch happened and Fox Soccer channel died.  Perfect timing seeing how the USA-Costa Rica world cup qualifier is tonight.

 

Might just be co-incidence, but it looks like the FoxSports launch might have been the dominoe that needed to fall before Uverse got this deal done. 

 

Now I hope we get access to the online streaming ap too (like watchespn/hbotogo/nbcsports/etc.).  Not a huge deal but it would be nice.

Definitely seeing this on my guide.  Not able to watch it.  *Apparently* not able to add it.  Called ATT and the operator says that according to their records it's not available.  If anyone is able to watch it, can you verify your packages?  It might automatically be in the sports package.
