beIN Sports Removed from Comcast Xfinity Systems

Comcast Has Chosen to Deny Xfinity Subscribers Nationwide Access to
beIN's Un-paralleled Sports Coverage of LaLiga, El Clásico, MotoGP,
MotoAmerica, WTA, Conference USA, and More

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.
