It is thought that all BeIN Sports channel will be removed from Nilesat in the coming months, with BeIN focusing on transmitting from the Es’Hailsat satellite positioned at 25.5 degrees East.
This can be seen by the recent movement of some BeIN Sports channels, including the English language BeiN Sports 11 HD, no longer available on Nilesat at 7 West, and only available on Es’Hailsat satellite positioned at 25.5 degrees East
