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.

Re: We need beIN Sport!!!

U-verse currently has no plans to engage in any further negotiations to add BeIN Sport to its lineup.

Source?  Before making wild accusations such as this how about a credible source.

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.

Re: We need beIN Sport!!!

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.

Re: We need beIN Sport!!!

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.
