BeIN Sport kicks off streaming service with TWC, BHN
Al-Jazeera Sport Media Network’s beIN Sport launched a new streaming service today with Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks’ authenticated subscribers.
The new service, which is called beIN Sport Play, will feature video content streamed in HD that is available on any broadband-connected PC, mobile device, or smart player. The video player for the new service can be expanded to full-screen mode if desired.
The main course for the online streaming service is soccer action from the premier European leagues and tournaments, as well as action from competitions in motor sports, cycling and other top international sports. In addition to full online access to beIN Sport and beIN Sport en Español, authenticated subscribers will be able to stream live overflow matches offered via the service.
The service includes email notifications 30 minutes prior to kickoffs plus relevant news and information on viewers’ favorite teams and games.
The service will launch with other video providers over the coming months, according to beIN Sport. BeIN Sport first launched with DirecTV and Dish Network last year before adding Comcast to its roster.
BeIN Sport Play offers sports fans all the excitement of our worldwide coverage of the best athletes and sports leagues,” said Yousef Al Obaidly, managing director of beIN Sport. “We are excited to deliver sports fans state-of-the-art broadband access to this exclusive action.”
