BeIN is back! The sports channels, which stopped broadcasting in the UAE a month ago, are now back online.
Both Etisalat and du subscribers are now able watch more than a dozen sports channels offered by the broadcaster once again.
It’s especially welcome news for football fans, as the English Premier League kicks off again on 11th August, followed by the World Cup qualifiers in September, so lets hope the unblocking lasts until then.
After launching in November 2003 as Al Jazeera Sport and rebranding 10 years later, beIN in the Middle East acquired exclusive broadcasting rights for major football leagues, including the English Premier League, the German Bundesliga and the Italian Serie A.
The network also broadcasts the ongoing French Open tennis tournament and also has exclusive Middle East rights to the Formula One.
