    I'm happy for you that you can watch your USNT WCQ Away matches, but some of us are more into the leagues that they show. You know they leagues that they bought, with many games overlapping, that they inadequately provide coverage for.

    I think they show pretty many games from each league.

    Shouldn't you be madder at FoxSoccer, ESPN, or Goltv for letting beIN get the rights they have?

    What games do they show to few of?

    Just a thought - when you are watching a game - stay off twitter.

    Not if you're a fan of Ligue 1 or the Championship, and on many weekend Serie A gets the short end of the stick as well.

    La Liga is king on beIN.

    Not really, you can't expect somebody that has a business model, that works, overbid for something because some startup channel with the backing of a middle eastern government and oil sheiks overpays ridiculous amounts for properties.

    See above

    Unless you're an entitled little whiner who lacks the ability to distinguish between what he wants and what he deserves, you have no reason to be "madder" at any of them. And even then.

    La Liga is king on beIN. They have been showing 2-3 Ligue 1 games a weekend and 2-3 Seria A games a weekend.

    Championship only one game a weekend.

    The problem is when you have so many properties - how do you show them all?

    Maybe be upset at Ligue 1 and Seria A for taking the money and not realizing the lack of exposure they would get?

    Seria A was on Fox. They could have stayed.

    At one point Ligue 1 was on Fox as well.

    So could your anger be placed towards the leagues?

    La liga was on FSW regularly prior to goltv, then was on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3 for years..Not to mention the WWW unless you are one of those "if not on tv, then it doesn't exist" type of bloke.. What am i missing here?

    I've been reading this statement regularly for the past week. I still pay for cable but my bill is down by $11.23..What a waste of money.

    As I alluded to in the other thread... ...Dish Network 250 package subscribers along with Dish Latino Package subscribers now have access to BEIN Sport USA & BEIN Sport 2 which is an Alternate channel that broadcasts overflow matches.

    That is progress.
    Let's see if other service providers do the same thing.

    Tell me in which country apart from England, you are able to watch second division( championship) at all? It is second division for Ch. sakes.

    I don't get it? The Championship was available to watch in the US prior to beIN purchasing its rights, on a channel with much wider coverage.

    What provider do you use and how did you get it down to 11.32.

    Would love to see you post a copy of your bill?

    What football channels do you get?

    It has been a long time since it has been on FSC. I don't even remember that.

    Never had FSC + so I will have to take your word on it.

    Are you mad at The Championship folks who chose beIN?

    They were on there last season.

    I don't care about the Championship, but I do get mad when I see these constant ridiculous statements from you.

    The matches that are not on BEIN SPORT USA. Most of the time that will be La Liga programming that is usually live exclusively on the ESPANOL feed. But it also includes Italian matches too depending on the conflict.

    Also will be most helpful for those of us who want to see all the CONCACAF and CONMEBOL qualifiers live.

    Fantastic. Looking forward to seeing those games in March.

    Also looking forward to seeing some different La Liga matches as well.

    On FSC I don't remember- only promotional playoffs, can't say about FSC+. But it is second division after all- should I complain that I can not watch Liga Adelante or you Serie B? This is ridiculous- it is good channel that tries to satisfy everyone, and I believe they will going to get better with the future streaming service and maybe expansion. Corect me if I am wrong, but , I believe,when Fox started all you were able to see is Futbol Argentino.

    It was definitely on FS+ as well. I don't think we can compare to what it was like 10 years ago to now, the landscape has changed significantly.

    We can not, but don't you think that topics like " Bein Sports is failure" is little premature. I mean they launched only in August. How many years there was no FSC+ and no streaming service. Everything takes time, specially when your main programming is niche sport in this country.
