I'll add to the call for BeIN Sport to be in HD, preferrably before the USA/Jamaica game next Friday!

(watch, we'll get the channel in HD by then, and the game will only be produced in SD) :)

Here is another request for Bein to be in HD on Dish!!!

I have called Dish and put the request over the phone as well. The USA/Jamacia WC qualifer is on there tonight and so is the game in Antigua in October! Please Dish...get on the ball as Direct is beating you to the punch!

Only thing stopping me from switching is Direct doesn't have DIY in HD. Thats the channel my gf and I watch the most together. I dont want to be totally selfish and switch cause of Bein. Might as well be a good bf some of the time.

Other than DIY, Direct has more channels I want in HD (ESPNNews and ESPNU). If Direct gets DIY in HD, bye bye Dish!

Another USA World Cup Qualifier coming up on beIn on Friday. I guess it's doubtful we'll have it in HD by then.

Then again, what are the odds that a game being played in Antigua is produced in HD anyway?

I used to pay the 15 a month for FSC+, but discontinued it because I can't stand to watch it in SD.

I've been with DISH since '97, but if FSC+, BEin, and ESPNU don't get HD status before too long I may have to make a move that I don't really want to do.

Dish needs to add the HD channel to the line up. The picture quality is not that good. Looking at the other providers who carries the channel, they all offer it in HD!
DirectTV, Time warner, Comcast, Bright house.

Can someone from the DIRT team help push this request..

Other than the HD issue, Seems that DISH is not broadcasting the two channels available from BEIN Sports. The BEIN1 is focused for british audience and the BEIN2 is for Hispanics specially REAL Madrid fans.

DISH is taking the BEIN1 feed with spanish SAP and broadcasting it on 871 as BEIN2. This us totally wrong.

You can go to BEIN sports web site and see the difference in programming between these two channels compared to what DISH Network does on 408 and 871

Can they fix this?

Great news!

This addition seems to be for CH 408 for the english package. How about the latino package, CH 871, is that going to be available in HD as well?
I want to say yes. Because it is the same channel but with SAP set to spanish.

Now we can start looking for getting beIn~n (beIn 2) any time soon;)
Am I too greedy?

I'm glad to hear Bein sport is in tests to be upgraded to HD. I really hope it gets mainstream before the USA's WC qual games start, sometime in February I think. Thanks!!

There are certain sports that MUST be in HD for a TV feed to be useful. Otherwise one might as well listen on the radio.

Soccer (football) is "acceptable" on the closeups but they like to do wide field shots where the ball is more easily lost when watching in SD. DISH's letterboxing of the HD feed to make SD makes the problem worse.

Hopefully the HD feed will be added soon.

I've actually been watching BEIN and Fox Soccer Plus by setting the screen format on the Dish remote to "Partial Zoom" which seems to expand things close to full screen and still keep the aspect ratio to looking 16:9.
