    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.

    Winters,...
    Can you believe that some of us used to watch hockey and tennis in SD?!?
    Remember the "electronic puck"?

    I hope this comes through quickly. I've been waiting for FS+ to be in HD for years and considered cancelling it next year.

    very nice, thanks! FS+ in HD would get me to subscribe. BeIN is a nice addition though.
