Re: beIN Sports USA will be carried on FIOS?

I am just going to say that it is a sad day when I can't watch a USA world cup qualifier because my provider doesn't carry the channel.  Fios obviously has no idea how important this is to us. 

Fios, please make it right and get bein sports.

The only way to make them care is to change providers. go to bein sports website to find providers offering bein sports channel.  http://www.beinsport.tv/

No the disgrace is the soccer federations who opted for more money instead of carriage on channels most providers already had.

Actually, with due respect, this is a naive statement. For one thing, the leagues don't go around negotiating with individual carriers. They most often sign deals with a small number of carriers and/or distributors. Secondly, can you blame them for, when the contracts are coming due, maximizing their revenue? Did the NFL turn down ESPN because not everyone can afford cable?

The other issue is this: in essence, the addition of this channel would not increase Verizon's costs because when the contracts with Gol and Fox come up, the disappearance of the leagues from these outlets will dramatically reduce their value and cost to Verizon. I mention Fox because, alas, NBC has gotten the rights to the English league next year, and this is virtually Fox's obsession, not only in coverage but in talk, and it will be left with the Champions League, basically.

So - Gol and Fox will cost less and/or disappear, and the money will be spent on  BeIn. Most likely a zero-sum affair. What I guess is happening with the delay is the term of these two contracts. Maybe Verizon is waiting for their expiration before reducing the outlay and lauching BeIn.
