DetailsGabriel Miramar-Garcia | 10 June 2015

beIN SPORTS's multilingual broadcasts of football, boxing, rugby, tennis, cycling, motor sports and more are to be added to the YipTV over-the-top (OTT) offering.

The channel targets the 40 million people who have immigrated to the US: the network has channels from the Americas, Europe and Asia.

Coverage will include the much-anticipated Copa America 2015 matches, which will be played in nine stadiums in eight cities throughout Chile between 11 June and the final match in Santiago on 4 July.

"With the broad range of sports it airs, beIN SPORTS is being embraced rapidly all around the world," said YipTV CEO and co-founder Michael Tribolet. "That's why it was a natural first choice for the line-up of live programming choices that we're building at YipTV."

Launched with 50 channels, including live broadcasts of sports, news and entertainment from Latin America and Europe, YipTV plans to expand its line-up of programming by adding channels from Europe and Asia in coming months.
