Fox Soccer Channel has lost the rights to broadcast football (soccer) games from top European leagues La Liga (Spain) and Serie A (Italy). Al Jazeera Sports Network has won the rights to broadcast those games for the 2012-2013 seasons onward. They will broadcast the games on their sports channels beIN Sports 1 and beIN Sports 2 which are currently not part of your FiOS channel lineup. 

 

Unless Verizon adds these channels to their FiOS lineup, Verizon customers in North America will be unable to see any games from La Liga and Serie A. The games won't be available online through legal channels either. This means that Verizon customers will have no access to games from such high profile teams such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan, etc. 

 

Please add beIN Sports 1 and beIN Sports 2 to the FiOS channel lineup.

YES YES YES. Without it, I'm switching. How about you guys?

agree completely.  Availability of soccer coverage on FIOS was a primary reason for signing up.   With GOL's content switching to BeIN, I'm likely to switch to a provider who follows.

Everybody call fios at this number and request the channel. It's the only way we'll get it

My contract is up. And I love everything about Fios, but without this channel there is absolutely no way I can stay with Fios. This channel is essential.

Whoever gets beIN Sport USA will recieve a lot of new soccer-loving customers. Whoever doesn't will lose them.

For all of you threatening to drop FiOS becuase of this, what providers are carrying this channel? Comcast is not, if you go to their message boards you get the same complaints from their customers as well.

I'm sure DirectTV and Dish will be getting it. I'm gonna switch if FiOS doesn't do something.

This channel is a must have! Please make it happen.

Make sure you guys add the HD CHANNELS. Don't make your customers live with only the standard def versions. Thank you.
