The new season of Serie A kicks off on August 25, but if you want to ensure that you don’t miss watching a game featuring your favorite Italian team, it’s time to take action.
Previously you’ve been accustomed to watching Serie A on FOX Soccer and ESPN3. But as we exclusively reported four months ago, beIN SPORT has acquired the US TV and Internet rights to Serie A. 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 Serie A on US television and the Internet.
However, unless you take action now, it’s possible that you may not be able to watch Serie A 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 Serie A games.
If you want to watch Serie A 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.
It’s imperative that you contact your TV provider, as well as telling your friends or family members to call, too.
Don’t be surprised if you find out that tons of Serie A fans switch on their TV sets during the weekend of August 25 and tune in to FOX Soccer, expecting to see a Serie A game. Many will be disappointed. But if you’re on top of Serie A news, take action now so you can watch beIN SPORT on your TV provider.
In addition to Serie A, beIN SPORT has the exclusive media rights in the United States to La Liga, Barca TV, Real Madrid TV, Copa del Rey, 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 Serie A, 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.
