RE: DirecTV DROPS beIn Sports
That is going to get me at the very least $15 off my monthly bill and probably another year of free NFL Sunday.

I will be calling and letting Direct know this is the one channel I watch more than any other. Hell I really only watch it when a CUSA game is on but today it's the most important channel in my package

RE: DirecTV DROPS beIn Sports
Just got off the phone with Direct and the guy said they had lot of calls today. I explained to him that Western is my favorite college team and watch a lot of CUSA sports on Bein. If I had known they would drop this channel I would have went with cable.

The good news....$35 a month off my bill for 12 months. If you have Direct call them and demand a discount because this is one of the games you must play with these blood sucking money grabbing companies

We been with Direct for over 8 years...switching between myself then to my wife after every two year contract ends. That way you always get update jenies and the first year discount and free NFL Sunday for every other year.

Direct drops a channel almost every year or at least every other year. Everytime they do I play the game with them...that was the reason I got Direct. Some times its $15 off and sometimes its $15 off with free movie channels. Today I was offered the $15 with movie channels and I said no. His offer went to $35 and I jumped on it

Got to play the game

RE: DirecTV DROPS beIn Sports
This channel now was only reason to get the sports package before basketball starts...I will wait, may still call and complain but this happens with a lot of networks and channels. I am sure they will get it back on soon, Big Ten pulled from Comcast and now they are back on. Western doesn't have a game on BEin until Nov I think, by then channel will probably be back up on DIrect TV....

USM only has one game on BeIn this year, @ UAB, which I plan on attending. Which Stadium-TV games of ours are on the actually stadium channel and which ones are the stadium-facebook live stream?

The game will have the Facebook "F" by Stadium if it's a Facebook game.

RE: DirecTV DROPS beIn Sports
Every damn carrier has dropped BeIn Sports. Comcast,DirectTV,Verizon, AT&T, etc have all dropped the network. Sucks.

BTW, Sling has an "International Sports" package it doesn't promote that, from what I've read, is only $10/month. I'm looking into that, as well as FUBO TV.

My wife is a master DirecTV negotiator. She’s on the phone with them now. We’ve been with them for 14 years and have only paid for NFL Sunday ticket once. We have HBO & Cinemax Free for life. Plus we always have somewhere between $15-$50 discounts every month. Like you said you just have to play the game.

I need your wife to negotiate on my behalf, I have gotten SUnday TIcket free for 3 years, pretty much every other year, however they would not budge last time I called, no way was I getting it free again this season haha...Sucks you cannot even get Redzone Channel, that would be better for me then watching Bengals every week....I usually get discounts but they have been stingier lately and pretty much only have HBO for life to show for negotiations at this point. SOme guy called and offered me SHowtime and I told him those channels are pretty much worthless to me so that was that....

Sling has an International Sports Package and a Latino Package that include BEIN and BEIN ESPANOL. Both are Standalone, requiring no other purchase, and both are $10/month. Easiest and cheapest way to get BEIN
