beIN SPORTS leaves Foxtel & Kayo, still available at new lower price via Fetch TV or Direct app

    A decade ago Foxtel was the dominant Australian subscription TV service to watch world soccer, rugby and tennis matches but now most of those rights are split between beIN SPORTS and Stan Sports.

    beIN SPORTS has parted ways with Foxtel and Kayo as of July 1 2023 after a 7-year partnership.

    The beIN SPORTS CONNECT OTT platform offers live and on-demand soccer, tennis and rugby union coverage including: every Serie A and Bundesliga game, live coverage of the Carabao Cup, EFL, Ligue 1, SPFL, ATP, WTA Tennis, men’s & women’s Sevens rugby and more.

    Fetch TV will continue to be a major distribution partner of beIN SPORTS, offering three special curated premium linear channels via the Fetch aggregation platform and the Fetch Mobi companion app, at the reduced price. Fetch TV says recent updates to the Fetch user interface include optimisation for sports fans.

    Effective 1 July, Fetch TV box users can subscribe to beIN SPORTS for $14.99 per month compared to the previous rate of $19.99 or as a limited-time offer $129.99 for a 12-month subscription, down from $179.99. This promotion is until 19 August 2023.

    John Armitage, Director of beIN SPORTS Australia and New Zealand, said

    “While many subscription services are increasing prices, beIN SPORTS remains dedicated to providing fans unrivalled access to their favourite content. We, at beIN SPORTS, are passionate sports fans ourselves. So with this price change, we aim to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to offering customers the best possible sports viewing experience at the best possible value.”

    Sam Hall, Chief Content and Commercial Officer at Fetch TV, said,

    “Fetch TV is delighted to continue to offer our subscribers access to premium sports content via beIN SPORTS. The Fetch customer proposition is centred around aggregation, and providing viewers with easy access to content from the world’s best providers. The beIN SPORTS channels are essential viewing for our sports-minded subscribers, and beIN SPORTS is a long term valued partner for Fetch TV.”

    1. They advertise as being carriers of an extensive selection of Leagues. In my case interest in EFL to watch a specific team. They show minimal coverage and omit many clubs. In no way should you subscribe for a specific team. There technical connectivity on my part via Browser on a 1GB connection was woeful and unreliable. AVOID like the plague unless you have an interest in a general sports coverage nature and don’t mind connectivity issues. I’m 5 days into my subscription, have managed to watch one match with 1 half being trouble-free but then multiple issues, next match a cup tie (not covered, although the cup is also listed as being covered), and weekend game coming up only 1 match available from whole division. Pathetic.
