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.

The Premier League’s chances of sealing a staggering £10million-per-game agreement – and £5 billion overall – from the next three-year domestic rights deal are even stronger now two foreign TV giants are involved.

The battle between Sky Sports and BT Sport in the auction for the seven packages was already such that £10m for each of 168 live games was an achievable target.

But the Premier League also have America’s massively-funded Discovery Channel looking closely at the tender document while Qatar-based beIN Sports are discussing whether to bid before the February 6 deadline.

Discovery, famous for their documentaries, look the more interested of the two potential new challengers. They own Eurosport so have an established platform on which to screen matches. Even one of the two mini 14-game packages might be seen as a way of establishing the Discovery-Eurosport partnership in the UK. Sports rights specialist Peter Hutton has been appointed Eurosport CEO to build content.

As for beIN Sports, they have the financial muscle to outbid all rivals and it seems a matter of when, rather than if, they will enter England’s domestic football market.

Doha executives say they will give serious consideration as to whether now is the right time to move. The competition will delight the Premier League, who sell each of the seven packages to the highest bidder, and it might be that three different networks share content from 2016-17.

BeIN Sports (MENA) to show all EPL 3pm kickoff from this weekend!

The English Premier League and beIN SPORTS has announced today the reinstatements of LIVE broadcast for Saturday “18:00 Mecca time” games in the Middle East & North Africa effective Nov. 8th.

beIN SPORTS, the Exclusive TV Rights holder of English Premier League (EPL) in the MENA region, has restricted the LIVE broadcasting of Saturday “18:00 Mecca time” games since Nov. 2013 due to piracy concerns in UK.

Commenting on the announcement, Mr. Nasser Al-Khelaifi, Chairman-CEO, said: “We are delighted to resume LIVE broadcast of all Saturday “18:00 Mecca time” games on beIN SPORTS channels. The English Premier League is a primary property and we are very happy to bring back this weekend excitement to our millions of subscribers in the region.”

English Premier League CEO, Richard Scudamore added: “beIN SPORTS strong Anti-piracy measures have proved to be successful and we are very happy to work hand in hand with broadcasters to address the issue on a more global scale.”

BeIN Sport have the rights to show all 380 Premier League games live.

But last season, the Premier League were concerned over piracy, they limited BeIN Sports to just one 3pm Saturday kick off.

To over come this, BeIN SPorts “went secure” – meaning their viewing cards could only be used in their official receiver.

This, it was hoped would mean that all 3pm kick offs would return.

The Bein Website was updated to say that they would be showing all 380 games live.
And even Richard Keys said on his twitter page in July that they would show all games live.

However, this week BeIN Sports have only been advertising just one 3pm Saturday kick off – QPR v Spurs.

No mention of any of the other matches.
But today, Richard Keys to day said the following:

“To the best of my knowledge guys we are now ‘secure’ but we have to go thro a test period to satisfy P Lge. Not all games this w/e but soon”.

So it looks like BeIN Sports have to prove to the Premier League they are now secure.

Perhaps there will be some new measures to try and stop their feeds appearing illegally on IPTV / XBMC / Mag250 streaming boxes.

Seem strange when they have had all summer to do this…

So it looks like we shall have to wait and see what happens in the next few weeks with regards to the 3pm Saturday kick offs and BeIN Sports.

Hopefully they will be able to show the games live and in FULL HD.
