In my area bein Sport is also a part of the Ultimate package. So you may want to check that before subscribing to a sports package. Depending on your other interests, the Ulimate package may give you more for your money.

Verizon has indicated that it was going to offer beIN in other ways than having to subscribe to the Ultimate Package. I am wondering if this is that other way? If so, how is it different from the Extreme Sports Package?
I am going to try to call them to see what they tell me.

with ultimate package you get BEin sports channel ,plus cinemax,showtime,movie channel and epix included, I think its about $15.00 more for the ultimate pack than extreme,so if you like sports and movies its well worth it,so instead of paying around $10.00 more for just soccer add $5.00 on top of that and get the permiumn channels i listed above!

forgot to mention that you also get all the sports channels that you get in the extreme package as well!!.

Just spoke with Verizon. There is a $9.99 "Sports Pass" that is an add on. It contains beIN Sports plus some other channels. I don't remember that all, but I do remember Longhorn Sports, Blackbelt, CBS Sports (which I already get), and a few others.
For me, it is an extra $20 a month for Ultimate, so the choice is whether the $10 a month difference, or $120 extra a year, is worth going to Ultimate instead of just getting the Sports Pass.
I wonder when Verizon is going to announce this Sports Pass on its website?

If you don't care for the movie channels, $10 a month is a factor. I got the ultimate because it was the only way to get one channel I considered a must have. Then found I liked Cinemax, especially some of the original series. But Ultimate does have a lot I don't watch, so if I could get what I wanted and save $10 a month, it would be an easy decision.

I understand where you are coming from. I had the Ultimate Tier at one point, but I didn't watch alot of those channels so I downgraded.
Another problem with changing my tier back up to Ultimate is that I was told I would lose the discounts associated with the package I have now. The discounts won't transfer to the new package and they can't give me an equal amount of discounts with a new package. At least with the Sports Pass, it is an add on like HBO, so you can cancel at anytime with no penalties or changes to your plan.
Verizon does advertise the Sports Pass on its website. Here are the channels. The only ones I would be interested in would be beIN and ESPN Classic, since I will be losing that channel sometime in May since I only have the Extreme tier.

Verizon will not sell me Sports Pass in conjuction with either Prime or Extreme packages. This contradicts their April announcement. Have any annoucments been made of withdrawal of Sports Pass?
