BeIN Sports channel removed

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.

Then you'll be switching very soon.  Not likely to be settled anytime soon.  Just be sure that your next provider carries BeIN and isn't likely to drop them like Comcast, FIOS and others have.

Re: BeIN Sports channel removed

Don’t listen to AT&T people who reply here. This is set up by them to counter complaints. The heck with AT&T. I have phone, the net & Directv but not for long. bIeN sports and La Liga is why I have Directv. Now you took Messi from me so we are cancelling everything AT&T.. Clearly you don’t care about what we want. It’s all about filling your pockets and bleeping us.. NO La Liga NO ! AT&T .............

We get you don't like those with the "ACE" tag, but please don't spread falsehoods.

 

We are not here to push the DTV agenda, trained in "damage control", or even DirecTV employees as you suggest/accuse. We are other customers providing our perspective and any knowledge that we have accumulated over the years in how TV providers work.

 

If you cannot wait for negotiations to complete, surely go where you must. Each provider has their pros and cons. There a few key reasons (billing model, deceptive in counting "channels" per HD and SD naming, etc.) that I will not use Dish again. But I will not begrudge anyone from choosing another provider. I just say go in informed so you don't have any surprises later.

"We get you don't like those with the "ACE" tag, but please don't spread falsehoods."

Is not about what I like or I don't I came here for information about BeIN and DTV and I found a group of DTV cheerleaders who provide no information what so ever only propagate fear "If you drop DTV and go to dish prices will be up", "they have more 
conflict", "who know if the rest wont drop BeIN too" is all the information you gave. And so far you show proof that you are not a personal beneficiary of DTV is just what you say. I provide information about negotiations I provided links. I provide the information that two day ago BeIN signed long terms contracts with other providers because I am actually reading what is going on I listen to soccer Talk podcast to see what they say every week you are here to scare people what may happen if they drop DTV, and to defend DTV in this dispute so stop to get upset when someone accuse you of DTV cheerleader probe that you are not, investigate a little and stop to scared people who say they are dropping DTV

@sunpacy

Well I never instilled fear into others. I did point out that all TV providers go through negotiations, just not at the same time. Yes some negotiations go better than others. My personal opinion is I would rather negotiations take their time so that a customer friendly solution may be found, instead of completing them quickly with high chance of raising my bill.

 

The quotes you gave certainly did not come from me. I have my own reasons for not choosing Dish based on certain things from my experience and their billing model, but have not gone into the specific details here as it did not seem relevant to the discussion.

 

What I dislike is claims you make such as that those with the "ACE" tag are trained by DirecTV to manage damage control, which is a complete lie. My Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) certainly does not list DirecTV or AT&T as my employer. There are many things about DirecTV I do like, but certainly am not a "cheerleader". In fact I am greatly opposed to their Genie-2 (HS17) setup being Client only, forbidding other HDDVRs from being on the account (making it in my opinion a bigger failure than the Genie Lite H44 they attempted).

 

We have differences in perspective in how these negotiation are handled, that is fine. But enough with the false statements please. Bottom line, I am a customer, not an employee of AT&T/DirecTV. Any statement to the contrary is a complete lie.

Re: BeIN Sports channel removed

But it's the only channel that broadcasts any live motorcycle road racing! So find a way to bring it back or I'll have my whole family cancel their DirecTV services!

Re: BeIN Sports channel removed

I am taking my business to the Dish Network if they don`t have it back by the end of this month and they probably won`t. All these nonsense from Directv. I don`t care what these Directv employees on this forum say. Early in the morning on October 1, first thing I am going to do is pick up my phone  and drop Directv like a bad habit.

BeIN is the only one that knows when they will sign the contract.
