beIN Sports Removed from Comcast Xfinity Systems

August 2, 2018

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 2, 2018--beIN SPORTS – sets the record straight concerning Comcast’s decision to drop beIN SPORTS.

“We are shocked that Comcast would mislead its customers concerning the negotiation of its carriage of beIN SPORTS programming. In fact, beIN offered to extend the agreement with Comcast on existing terms, and Comcast refused. Just like Comcast has refused to offer our networks in high definition or allow its customers to use beIN CONNECT. Unfortunately, Comcast would rather continue to exercise the chokehold it has on the pay-tv market and squeeze customers for more money by only carrying beIN in high priced tiers. beIN remains committed to delivering unparalleled sports content to the broadest audience and continuing to build fan engagement for its’ content partners,” said Antonio Briceño, beIN SPORTS’ Deputy Managing Director for the U.S. and Canada.
