    beIN Sport - Channel Request

    Hi,

    I wanted to make a channel request.

    beIN Sport is a new sports channel that is being launched in August. For soccer fans, they hold the exclusive rights to the Spanish La Liga, and Italian Serie A and French Ligue 1 leagues. They have not yet announced which network the channel will be on and have requested that we contact our network providers to ask for this channel. I hope Dish Network seriously considers adding this channel as A LOT of soccer fans which used to watch soccer on GolTv/Espn don't have a channel anymore and likely lots of new customers will leave Comcast/Verizon/DirecTV to join Dish Network if you have this channel. beIn Sport will most likely also have the English Premier League starting in 2013-14 season meaning they would have the rights to basically all European soccer games.

    Thank you for reading and I hope you consider this request.

    I miss La Liga from the good ole Voom days! (It was fun to watch plus they talked about SatelliteGuys a few times on the air during the games!) :D

    Thanks Scott. You seem to be a long time member of this site, do you know if there are any Dish Network reps here that we could contact about this?

    beINsports requests are so months ago, when I originally requested it when it was merely a rumor. :D

    Though I don't know if they are going to push for the EPL so quickly. They might need a third station to pull that much football off.

    Scott is too modest. He is not only a long time member of this site, he is the longest, being the site owner and all... ;)

    Here's a thread I can get into! BeIn is my Fearnet.

    I think any overruns will go online. I think it has been announced that there will be two networks and an online service to go along with them.

    The tricky part right now is that they don't actually have a chance to bid on EPL for another few months. It would make a huge difference between having that or not, so I imagine it's trickier to negotiate a multi-year carriage deal when such a basic part of the programming is up in the air.

    That said, these 2 channels would be awesome even without EPL...and with it, it will become a must-have for a small percentage of customers.

    How do you submit a request for this channel? I want these two beIn channels very, very badly. I would cut off one of my ears to get these channels. How do I make sure my voice gets heard? Is there a form online or is there an e-mail address that you send your request to?

    I can't post web links here, but if anyone is interested in following the latest updates, they now have official twitter pages:


    @beINSport1USA is the official twitter for the channel,


    @TheMilanGuy is the producer of the channel and he is posting lot of updates recently.

    Don't want Twitter... I want them to announce who is carrying them! One thing I hate about the Internet is that you anticipate things a lot more than you would before. We get bits of information early, but then are left hanging and by the time they come around to informing us what they've already known, we have become rabid Balotelli like creatures, ready to fly off the handle on an errant smilie icon.

    If they didn't announce jack already, I would be blissfully ignorant until the channel launch, then be pleasantly surprised. But now, we wait... to find out if Dish will carry them (I'm blaming the network here, not Dish), then need to find out what package, what price. Just because Dish would be carrying it, doesn't mean I'd be willing to pay just about anything for it.

    So we wait...

    ...and Zach, if you haven't placed a request on my behalf yet, I'd appreciate it if you could. Thanks. Your (DIRT's) help is always appreciated!

    lol nice one

    jokes aside, you are absolutely right. the season is about the start in 1 month and they havent even announced which carrier will provide this channel. its really frustrating for us to be left hanging like this.
