AT&T / DIRECTV / DIRECTV NOW Have Chosen to Deny their Customers
Access to beIN's Unparalleled Sports Coverage of LaLiga, Ligue 1,
MotoGP, MotoAmerica, WTA, Conference USA, and More

beIN SPORTS announces AT&T / DIRECTV / DIRECTV NOW's decision to drop
beIN SPORTS from their channel lineup.

"Despite beIN SPORTS USA's offer to extend its contract with AT&T /
DIRECTV / DIRECTV NOW, they chose to abruptly cease negotiations and
drop the beIN SPORTS channels from their lineup. beIN SPORTS remains
committed 24-7 to re-establishing access to our service in an effort to
move our channels to lower priced packages that ultimately save viewers
money," said Antonio Briceño, beIN SPORTS' Deputy Managing Director for
the U.S. and Canada.

"AT&T / DIRECTV / DIRECTV NOW, conversely, seek to keep beIN in higher
more expensive tiers and have shown no intention of providing fans
continued access to our world-class sports content, headlined by the
2018/2019 LaLiga season that millions of fans look forward to every
week, and is widely considered to be the top soccer league in the world.
beIN SPORTS remains committed to serving its loyal fans and will
continue its industry fight to achieve carriage in lower priced tiers.
beIN SPORTS continues to create and deliver some of the most compelling
and exciting sports content in the industry, and we strive for that
content to reach as large an audience as possible, without making our
fans pay more for it," added Briceño.
