We need beIN Sport!!!

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?

Re: beIn Sports and Watch ESPN

There shouldn't even be a debate about the popularity of soccer in this context. AT&T UVerse already carries Fox Soccer Channel (not to mention GolTV and Univision). The Fox Soccer Channel channel is already going away. This is due to their loss of the Premier League and MLS to NBC along with US Men's National Team games to ESPN and BeIN. When that channel leaves and combines with Speed to become Fox Sports One, then AT&T should just add BeIN in its place. Makes sense to me.

It all comes down to the amount of $$$ that the other channel wants vs the number of people that would actually watch the channel.

Perhaps, but keep in mind that Fox Sports 1 isn't starting until mid-August.

 

AT&T can get quite confused when it comes to negotiating for channels - just ask any WWE fan who remembers when WWE On Demand was removed at the end of 2011 (yes, I meant 2011, not 2012) after WWE announced that it would be going away once the WWE Network channel started up "in April" - and even when it became obvious to everybody that WWE Network wouldn't start up by April 2013, much less April 2012, AT&T still probably thinks the new channel is "too close to starting to make negotiating a contract for WWE On Demand not worthwhile."

 

Also don't assume that beIN is necessarily at the top of AT&T's list - there's also Hallmark Channel, NHL Network, BBC America HD,...

Re: Getting BeIN Sport Station

I too would like AT&T to add BeIN sports.  It is now the home for the FIM World Superbike racing series, recently dropped by Speed as they move the station into "traditional" sports.

Well that is a start.  I am decidedly NOT a soccer fan but by visiting this link, I see that there is lots there to watch.  So, why not AT&T?

Re: Getting BeIN Sport Station

Watching MLS is watching paint dry!  By the way, MLS is sponsored by ATT.  How pointless.  BeIn Sport shows some of the best soccer in the world.  It's clear you've never watched high level soccer so you wouldn't know the difference if it fell out of the sky and landed on your face.  It would have to do that since you can't watch it on ATT Uverse.

I've been to UEFA Cup matches in Monaco and was stationed in Naples Italy and went to several Seria A matches, I've also gone to see FC Dallas matches in person.  HUGE difference watching a game in person and watching on TV.  Watching soccer on tv is about the same as watching paint dry it's just not exciting.

Re: beIn Sports and Watch ESPN

Any new piece of news? I don't know how many times I've requested this channel, here or in facebook or even calling, and there's been no action taken from AT&T. Extremely frustrating

Re: beIn Sports and Watch ESPN

Maybe with Fox Soccer Channel being rebranded and Goal TV going under there could be a chance Uverse adds beIN Sports at some point if enough people request it .

Re: beIn Sports and Watch ESPN

Any proof of GolTV going under? You could be right though. AT&T might think there'll be a desire for an international sports channel and BeIN would fit that bill quite nicely.

Re: We need beIN Sport!!!

Might be a problem cause Al Jazerra owns part of beIn sports.  ATT dropped Current TV when Al Jazerra bought it. Smiley Wink
