On Sunday 1st November, BeIN Sports changed some of their channel frequencies and the satellites they operated on.

With no prior warning.

If your satellite dish is aligned to Nilesat at 7 West, then you will have lost BeIN Sports 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15.

These BeIN Sports channels (BeIN Sports 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15) are now only available on their satellites at 25.5 east, Es’Hailsat.

If your satellite dish is already aligned to Es’Hailsat at 25.5 East (or Badr at 26 east), then you will also need to perform a rescan of channels, as some of the BeIN Sports channels have changed their frequencies also.

An 80 or 90cm satellite dish should be able to receive the BeIN Sports channels on Es’Hailsat with no problems.

It is though that these changes have been made to make it harder for people in the UK to receive these BeIN Sports channels, which show every English Premier League football match live and in full HD, as the Es’Hailsat signals are said to be harder to receive in the UK, where as the Nilesat signals are easier to receive in the UK.

The frequency changes for the BeIN Sports channels on Es’Hailsat and Nilesat are detailed below:

  1. I bought 2.4m dish but still could not get Es hailsat signal in Yobe – Northern Nigeria. Does that means i will have to get something like 3m or bigger. Thanks for the help

  2. hi i live here in Ethiopia my question is how can i watch barclays premier legue with a dish in nilesat free in my home or free highlights

    • Ethiopia is not included in MENA, so BeIN Sports is not officially available to you – unless you can find a dealer.
      Supersport is the official EPL broadcaster for Ethiopia, so they will have dealers who can supply you with official viewing cards

  3. I s Nigeria included in MENA ?

    • MENA is an acronym referring to the Middle East and North Africa region. The MENA area covers a region extending from Morocco to Iran, including all Middle Eastern and Maghreb countries (Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Israel, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Syria).

      So MENA does not include Nigeria.

  4. Am in Ethiopia watching all the sport channels but the fox n nat geo channels seems to be not workin on the new frequency on es’hail sat any info please??????

    • No signal: – Do you have the correct frequency? Is your dish aligned correctly?
      Signal but no channel : contact BeIN or your provider to see if it is a problem with your subscription or viewing card.

  5. Is it possible to watch the above from Malta?

    • Given you are just off the coast of Africa, and BeIN Covers the MENA region, it should be no problem to receive their channels there
