Lived here all my life and Id never heard of it.

lol... I had to look it up. Wikipedia says its a "low power" station broadcasting from downtown Houston on over the air UHF channel 49. Most of the major networks are dicey in the burbs via antenna since the switch to HD. I doubt a low power signal has any shot of making it out here.

My current plan is to go to the game if I can set my schedule up for a roadie. Otherwise, I probably will be counting on some streaming option being available. 04-cheers

Effffffffff. I just switched FROM Sling to Vue and love it so much. Oh well. I guess the beauty of streaming is that I can switch my subscriptions without penalty.

Edit: Just found out that BeIN is headquartered in Doha, Qatar and owned by the Qatari government's Al Jazeera network. If anyone has been following the Qatar diplomatic crisis, this sudden drop kinda makes sense. Although, I'm hoping they are dropping out of necessity (i.e. the Al Jazeera network shutting down/not having the future funds for licenses) and not as "virtue signaling" by Playstation. This whole "crisis" (which I'm following closely because I'm flying through Qatar soon) is extremely dumb. It's a bunch of terrorists harboring countries accusing a small but growingly powerful country of talking too nice about terrorists. Anddd....I've gone way OT.

2nd Edit: C-USA fans might want to keep an eye on this. If Al Jazeera shuts down (which is one of the demands of the countries that are imposing the blockade) or Qatar has an economic crisis, then BeIN will likely have to scale back all of its programming to prevent financial collapse.

Prepare yourself for a much longer flight in and out of Doha. UAE, Saudi and Bahrain are restricting Qatar Airways from flying through their airspace (except a single flight path for entry and exit over Bahrain), which will force all flights into Iranian airspace as a go around. Oh and don't forget to check your laptop in your checked bag. (Personally, I would just leave it at home). Cheers!

I am not expecting BEIN to be a long term deal for CUSA, they only carry 1 football game a weekend and a 1 conference basketball game a week, so not a huge amount of games....I suspect we get used to watching a lot of our games on Twitter and Facebook, seems to me this is where CUSA games are headed...To me that option is much better than ESPN3...

That's the funny thing, I've been tracking our route (PHL-DOH) on FlightAware since the restrictions went into place and most have been arriving 45-50min early

If you expect to have CUSA games on cable TV I'm not sure how you won't be disappointed for a long time. The bottom line is we can watch our away games now. And as much as it sucks that we aren't on ESPN or CBS at least we have the option.

Same here. Actually sold my xbox one to get a ps4 just for Vue because of the sports channels. Thanks for sharing about the Qatar diplomatic crisis that might be one of the reasons Sony wanted out. Right now Sling is the only one that offers BeIN out of the major streaming services.

Yea I don't see why people are so upset. The ability to watch game on FB and twitter are way better moving into the future.
Just think the avg student of your school who mostly likely does not have cable can watch now.
