Only weeks after it made its debut in Europe, beIN SPORT is taking its 24-hour global international sports network to America via Comcast’s Xfinity TV service.
beIN SPORT will offer all of the top football from the leagues in Europe and South America, including games from Spain’s La Liga, Italy’s Serie A, France’s Ligue 1, South American World Cup Qualifiers and Copa America 2015. The network will also carry the away games for the US men’s national soccer team in the qualifying rounds of the 2014 World Cup.
Adding to Comcast’s existing sports offerings, beIN SPORT will be available in Spanish on the Xfinity TV MultiLatino Package and in English on the Xfinity TV Sports Entertainment Package. Availability of both channels will vary by market. In addition to its linear TV networks, select beIN SPORT content will be available on demand via Comcast’s Xfinity On Demand platform. Live matches carried on beIN SPORT’s linear networks, along with additional live matches, will also be available to authenticated Comcast Xfinity TV customers via Comcast’s online and mobile TV Everywhere platforms.
