    I watched a little bit of Barca this morning..... picture quality was very disappointing. Looked like they got their feed from U-Verse or something. :D

    Got to say, not loving this channel. I just added Sports pack to watch the Championship match that their website and the DirecTV guide says is on right now from 7:30-9:30pm ET and there is a La Liga highlight show on instead. This is false advertising at worst, a major screwup at best. Does this kind of thing happen often with this channel? So far I am reminded of Setanta which is not a good thing.

    Growing pains of a new operation. It's unfortunate but expected...

    If by often you mean in their 2 weeks of existence, then yes it happened multiple times. Let's give them some time to put their things together before judging them.

    Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but the guide data was jacked up on many of my guide channels. ESPN had the wrong show listed for the entire day on ESPN and ESPN2 (at least in my guide). My series link recorded shows that were actually a different show.

    Under the conspiracy theory, I think they were showing program names you might actually watch, and showing crapfests like Sports Nation to trick you into checking the show out again. Shows like that are more likely to get me to quit watching the channel all together.

    Sports channels guide data often gets messed up because of changes in live events (rain delays, cancellations, series that may or may not need games) and because of length of events.

    I try to never record a showing of something on a sports channel for hours after a live event. Some will delay programming for the extension of the event and some cancel programming.

    Unless they get the data out to update quickly, there will always be uncertainties with channels that show live events.

    I am noticing a silver, magnetic effect in certain camera angles for most of the games that are supposed to be in HD. Very annoying! Totally unacceptable picture quality! They need to address this problem ASAP!!!

    Watched a Serie A game today. Serie A games on FSC have been always of a great quality. The white edge were very badly present today.

    We should post on their Twitter to ask them to improve their PQ quality.

    beINSport1USA The picture quality should be back to normal now on the HD... How is it on your TV? 9 minutes ago · reply · retweet · favorite

    Much better, but still not great.

    I'm glad they fixed that 'silver' edge look, that made things unwatchable yesterday. I had seen it in less disturbing forms before yesterday though.

    Just getting used to this new channel. Does the channel have a Fox Sports News/Sky Sports News/GolTV News type of news channel on nightly?

    Thanks!

    I don't think so. There is 'The Global Game' and other highlight shows but they're not what I'd call daily highlight/news shows, not yet. I have hope though.

    So i guess that the 2 channels beinsport announced are the english as 1 and spanish as 2.
    They have it on twitter that way. @beinsport1usa @beinsport2usa (for spanish). Also looking at their programming grid they are throwing all the la liga games to the spanish channel.

    Sat on English #beIN (time in ET):
    10 am:Nottingham Forest v Charlton Athletic
    12pm: Torino v Pescara
    2:45pm: Bologna v AC Milan

    Sunday on English #beIN:
    6am: Rayo Vallecano v Sevilla
    9am: Bordeaux v Nice
    10am: Athletic Bilbao v Valladolid
    12pm: Udinese v Juventus
    2pm: Granada v Real Madrid
    4pm: Barcelona v Valencia

    Saturday on Spanish #beIN (times in ET):
    10am: Celta v Osasuna
    12pm: Zaragoza v Malaga
    2pm: Deportivo v Getafe
    4pm: Mallorca v Sociedad

    Sunday on Spanish #beIN:
    6am: Rayo v Sevilla
    8am: Ameria v R.Madrid B
    10am: Bilbao v Valladolid
    12pm: Udinese v Juventus
    2pm: Deportivo v Getafe
    4pm: Mallorca v Sociedad

    So if you want Serie A, ligue 1 and more Liga matches You need to suscribe both the sports pack and the spanish pack as they are not exactly the same channel
