Re: beIn Sport 1 & 2 (new soccer channels)

said by Keano:

I really, really hope beIN wins.

Why?

What possible value could this bring to the viewer? If BeIn has Serie A, La Liga, etc. already, how many live games can they show on their one and only English language channel? A channel which presently is only SD for the vast majority of people who have any access to it at all.

In a perfect world the leagues would each be on different networks and the consumer would have as many options as possible. Competition is good for the consumer, a monopoly is not.

Unless you're a Qatari prince and have a financial stake in this I can't imagine why a soccer fan would be pulling for BeIn to add the EPL to its stable of toys.

Because I have Directv.

And beIN production & HD picture quality is far superior to Fox.

Then why are you on this board? Much of this thread smells like BeIn marketing.

Having the sole provider that carries them in HD still doesn't change the fact that they can't possibly show 4 lives games at once on a single channel.

WRT to production I've heard they have three announcers in the booth and they talk too much.
