Re: [HD] BeIN Sports - Coming this month

so I have to have the highest tier of TV Service in order to get this soccer channel? I have prime HD + 75/35 so that means I cannot get it ? lol.

Great find. But, that says details this week. My guess is the details will be that it will start rolling out in April and complete by September - just a guess.

So long as I can watch the start of Seria A and La Liga next season I will be happy. This year, I would like to be able to see the end of Seria A, but I am not holding my breath.

What area are you in? -

I'm concerned as in my area (VHO-5 - NY) we still haven't even gotten TV Guide HD - I hope they don't start adding new HD channels around the country before catching us up and leaving us even further behind .....

im doing verizon chat tech support and the rep just confirmed the launch of beIN sport today, I have La Conexion package and he said it should be on channel 1538. So I switched to that channel but it still doesnt exist, I guess it launched today but not in my area VHO-5 (NY)

Bein shows on the guide here in Pittsburgh at channel 1538. I don't subscribe to whatever package it requires, so I can't comment on quality

I'm in Pittsburgh and I have the Extreme HD package. I get the "not subscribed" message on channel 598.

Also, channel 1538 is listed as "beIN EHD" in the guide. I assume that is HD.

I just checked the guide again and 1538 is an HD channel. All of the shows have the "HD" icon next to them.

I have Ultimate, but I do not see the channel in my area. Does this mean that this channel is not nationwide?

I say this because I was told that this channel will be for Ultimate customers. I was surprised that it was in the Extreme package thumbnail that was posted.

i dont know why verizon is so sketchy and secretive about launching channels, they should just announce it as info becomes available so that customers don't run around forums or call customer service just to get info on the launch. A simple date could solve all our beIN sport anxiety

Both Channels 598 and 1538 are HD MPEG-4 channels. The mapping is as follows:

* 405 MHz (us-irc:54, us-cable:54)
PROGRAM 1172: 1451 TEAM HD 2 NBA (encrypted)
PROGRAM 1173: 1452 TEAM HD 3 NBA (encrypted)
PROGRAM 1174: 1453 TEAM HD 4 NBA (encrypted)
PROGRAM 1175: 1454 TEAM HD 5 NBA (encrypted)
PROGRAM 1197: 598 beIN HD (encrypted)

* 681 MHz (us-irc:105, us-cable:105)
PROGRAM 1156: 1471 Game HD 6 (encrypted)
PROGRAM 1157: 1472 Game HD 7 (encrypted)
PROGRAM 1158: 1473 Game HD 8 (encrypted)
PROGRAM 1159: 1474 Game HD 9 (encrypted)
PROGRAM 1198: 1538 beIN Spanish HD (encrypted)

If your VHO already has channels 1451-1454 and 1471-1474, you should be getting these channels very soon. This is different from TV Guide HD which requires an open QAM slot at each VHO.

The new channel loading suggests that Verizon will pack at least 5 HD channels per MPEG-4 QAM slot even for the most demanding sports channels which use the most bandwidth.

So 598 (MavTV's old home) for Bein and only in HD. GOOD!
It's time to start offering channels ONLY IN HD!

Because in the past everyone in the forums kept posting complaints when dates got pushed out. This is the reason why launch dates are not announced.

Do not believe thumbnails as Verizon has announced publicly it will only be available for Ultimate subscribers. I would guess that a manager at Verizons Web site will be flogging someone atm...
