I switched from Directv to Fios , but I now see that since Directv has beIN Sport and Verizon doesn't, we may not be able to see the football season -- the real football season, I mean, with La Liga, and SerIes A. While I'm generally happy with Verizon, that is like losing the NFL for some people, so unless Verizon gets beIN Sport soon, I'll beswitching back to Directv. And the season has started, so they have to get it soon! Please Verizon!

beIN Sports is a new dedicated sports channel available in the USA. Launched in August 2012, the channel is an initiative supported by Qatar Sports Investment. The channel will be trying to establish itself as the "new home of football" for soccer fans in America. The channel has acquired an impressive portfolio of TV rights for the US which will certainly target a big segment of soccer fans in the US. Currently beIN Sports is negotiating deals with various US television providers. Availability of the channel's programming will be limited to DirecTV Ch 620 and 9620 (HD) and on Dish Network DISH’s America’s Top 250 package as well as on the DISHLatino package. (Channels 408 and 871)
The channel will expand it's availability to new US TV providers in due time.

I suggest you all cast your vote on this thread, eventhough I know it won't matter but we can only try!!
whats a shame is that if I upgrade to the top package on Verizon right now, Verizon still won't carry it where atleast I know the top Package on DTV does, I guess we better get used to limited TV cause thats what Verizon is im sadly coming to that realizeation, Question is to switch or not to switch this company will always be 2/3 best always.
I like Verizon, but I love soccer particularly games from La Liga. Now that they are gone from Verizon I m seriously considering switching to DirectTV. I look forward to watchin Barca and Real games in the weekends...without Bein that wont be possible, but thanks God I do have a choice....
I wanted to let you know that we're listening! I've made sure folks within Verizon are aware of your comments and your suggestions to add beIN Sports. While we can't comment on ongoing negotiations- I will keep you posted if we add any new channels.
