If You Want to Watch La Liga This Season, Contact Your TV Provider Today

bein sport 600x335 If You Want to Watch La Liga This Season, Contact Your TV Provider Today

If you live in the United States and you watch La Liga — whether it’s el Classico, Real Madrid, Barcelona or any of the other teams in the Spanish league — it’s time to take action.

Previously you’ve been accustomed to watching La Liga on ESPN and GolTV. But as we exclusively reported in March, beIN SPORT has acquired the US TV and Internet rights to La Liga. The new soccer network will launch two channels on August 15, 2012 — beIN SPORT 1 (English-language) and beIN SPORT 2 (Spanish-language). beIN SPORT has both the Spanish- and English-language rights to La Liga on US television and the Internet.

However, unless you take action now, it’s possible that you may not be able to watch La Liga when the new season kicks off on August 19.

Reason being is that beIN SPORT is feverishly working to negotiate deals with TV distributors, but unless the TV distributors hear from passionate soccer fans like you, they won’t realize that there’s a pent-up demand for La Liga games.

If you want to watch La Liga on TV and/or the Internet for this upcoming season, you need to contact your TV provider and tell them that you demand to have beIN SPORT added to your channel guide.

The complete list of contact information for TV distributors, including Twitter, Facebook and phones numbers, is available on the beIN SPORT website.

It’s imperative that you contact your TV provider, as well as telling your friends or family members to call, too.

In addition to La Liga, beIN SPORT has the exclusive media rights in the United States to Barca TV, Real Madrid TV, Copa del Rey, Serie A, Ligue Un, Copa America, South American World Cup qualifiers and more.

There’s only one way for your TV provider to know that there is a demand for La Liga, and that’s by telling your TV provider that you want beIN SPORT. The TV business is a two way street where beIN SPORT is having negotations with TV distributors, but — at the same time — TV providers need to know that there’s enough demand to make adding the network worthwhile.

It’s time to take action. Contact your local TV provider today.
