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.

GOOD NEWS, bein sports IS COMING BACK FIRST WEEK OF OCTOBER:

 

I just chatting with one of their CSR (09/23/20118, at 1:05 pm eastern time) and she assure me that bein is coming back first week of October, negotiations are almost done, no extra fee or anything, so that's good news fellas!!!


I doubt that CSR has any inside information about these negotiations.  I'll believe it when I see it.  Too often they just tell you what you want to hear so they can move on to the next call.  I've seen no such announcement from BeIN or DirecTV.

If DTV had come into some kind of agreement with Bein Sports;they would be very to quick to announce it before they lose anymore customer..

i really dont think there are enough customers to lose to make it matter

ratings are for all carriers, not just directv

 

"beIN Sports en Español meanwhile ranked No 3 among all cable sports networks (regardless of language), with viewers tuning in for an average of 20 minutes.

If you are mad because you lost LaLiga as I am for losin MotoGP, cancel.   Directv has kept 7 million Dodger households blacked out for 5 full seasons currently and it could go on for another 20 yrs I’ve read.   Directv is refusing to negotiate for those fans nor are they willing to offer channels ala carte.   So again, La Liga will not be coming back and when Direct uses phrases like “may come back soon” it’s just their way of keeping your money coming in while you are holding false hope.   Screw off Directv

CSR’s don’t know anything.   They are reading cue cards designed to keep you from canceling.

It is TWC/Spectrum asking price that is preventing DTV from getting the Dodger games.

One solution to offset these “asking prices” stop paying the “asking prices” for the other unwatchable channels. I’m sure the ratings for channels like Hallmark or CSPAN are nowhere near where the Dodgers and Bein channels would be

The content providers bundle their channels and there is nothing DTV or other providers can do except pick the bundle that best suits their customers.

Is there an estimated time frame of when terms may be reached or is BeIN completely off channel list?

Sadly, no. There is no ETA on when/if beIN will sign a new agreement. Only they know when they sign or decide to quit negotiations all together.
