Now that BeIN Sport is available on Dish Network, has anyone seen it (other than myself;))?

The English-language version is on Channel 408 and I think it's part of their AT250 package, which I have.

The Spanish-language version is on Channel 871.

We haven't made any announcements as to whether or not we will carry the HD feed. I will throw in a request on your behalf!

DISH has not even announced the SD feed ... :D

(Although it did make the http://dish.com/preview/ page. Free preview ends September 11th. It will be an AT250 channel after that.)

When will INFO be added (shows nothing when you hit info)? Hard to tell who is playing. Will this be mainly French soccer?

+1

Probably has to do with transponder space. That said the HD picture on Directv is amazing in comparison.

Transponder space and demand. Much of the content was carried on GOL TV ... and as announced on the Preview page linked above, beIN will end up in the AT250 package.

And as far as comparing one companies HD with the other companies SD feed ... don't go there.

Didn't mean to say one providers HD is SO much better...I was referring to the SD/HD picture comparison of the channel. I also noted that the HD bug is in the SD feed DISH is providing.

I really hope that they offer this in HD soon. Taking an HD feed and shrinking it to SD is very hard on eyes. I have this same problem with Fox Soccer Plus.

Fully aware. Qatar is doing whatever it takes to convince the world that they deserved to host the 2022 World Cup over the US. They have spent so much money on buying the TV rights to all of these different soccer leagues that they were forced to do anything to get them on the air. In fact, it appears that both Dish and DirecTV were PAID to carry beIN Sport.

After the free preview, is CH 408 going to be on American top 250 only and not on the latino package?
I know the latino package will have CH 871 in spanish, but I'm trying to see if the channel will be available in english (408) under the latino pack
