If BeIn gets the EPL I will be very upset. I am pissed off that they have hijacked the away USA games.
Don't get angry at beIN. It's a great channel that provides fantastic content.
Get angry at the mickey mouse cable provider that you give thousands of dollars per year for substandard service.
As has been noted before, the away US qualifiers were never on regular cable before, in previous years they were only available via PPV.
I would like for FIOS to pick up BeIn. The more soccer the better but in the quest for more soccer I don't think anybody will be well served if BeIn gets the EPL. That would mean that they'd have to juggle 4 major leagues on a single (likely SD) channel. ESPN has the channels today, on practically all providers, to carry multiple live EPL games. Who wouldn't want to have that in addition to BeIn?
Anybody saying otherwise is probably a shill for the network.
