In a gesture aimed to bring a little joy and inspiration to sports households across the Middle East & North Africa (MENA), beIN has announced that

all “Sports” package subscribers will be given a complementary upgrade to beIN’s “Premium” package. This will give the sports package subscribers access to beIN’s Entertainment content, until June 30th, 2020. This upgrade also gives Sports subscribers access to beIN CONNECT – beIN’s market-leading streaming service. 

As live sport is temporarily on hold, beIN continues to exclusively broadcast some of the most memorable sports matches of recent times on a daily basis. beIN SPORTS has the largest portfolio of sports rights of any global broadcaster, and will continue to broadcast original sports programming and thrilling historic content over the next few weeks. 

All beIN SPORTS channels from HD1 to HD13 will be showing the best matches from the world of sport, including FIFA World Cups, AFCON tournaments, English Premier League, LaLiga, and Ligue 1, as well as the NBA, Tennis Grand Slams, and others. In addition, beIN has innovatively put subscribers in control, with fans voting on which football matches are shown from a shortlist curated by beIN stars.

Commenting on the announcement, Yousef Al-Obaidly, CEO of beIN MEDIA GROUP, said, “At this incredibly challenging time, we know people and families across the MENA region are looking for inspiration, light relief and something positive to keep them going. These are unprecedented times and this is an unprecedented set of upgrades and additional services for our valued subscribers.”
