    Best news I have heard all week. HELL YEAH.

  2. jason says:

    It’s not available on my U200 package, so I’m guessing it’s for subscribers of U300 and up only.

    Pity. Looks like I’ll be watching a stream online tonight as originally planned.

  3. Jersey says:

    I wonder how many complete cutaways to other matches we can look forward to.

  4. jason says:

    Just did some more digging.

    Apparently, it’s available to U450 subscribers, as well U200/300 Latino and Sports packages.

  5. Jake says:

    I have u300 and I’m not getting it, and it doesn’t even tell me how of what package I can get it on. How do I get it??

  6. KCZealot says:

    You have to get the sports package. The one with all the hunting and racing channels.

    FOX Soccer Channel ch-654
    FUEL TV ch-536
    Golf Channel ch-641
    NBC Sports Network ch-640
    NFL Network ch-630
    SPEED ch-652

    It looks like it is taking the place of the basic Fox Soccer Channel

  7. KCZealot says:

    Bah sorry that is the sports for FREE on the 200. The sports package contains these:

    CBS Sports Network ch-643/1643
    FOX College Sports – Atlantic ch-647
    FOX College Sports – Central ch-648
    FOX College Sports – Pacific ch-649
    FOX Deportes ch-655/3303
    GolTV ch-656/3304
    HRTV ch-672
    Outdoor Channel ch-680/1680
    Sportsman Channel ch-642
    SportsNet New York ch-704
    SportsTime Ohio ch-735/1735
    TV Games Network ch-670
    YES ch-702

    And now they have added BEiN to it

  8. johninatl says:

    Knew that this site would be the first to break this news! Great job guys! Like Christmas came early. . .

    Really enjoying the new format here on this site, now a top, top site for soccer! Keep up the good work.

  9. Bob H. says:

    Great news! I was wondering if U-verse would ever carry beIN. Looking forward to seeing La Liga, Serie A, Ligue Un and the Championship again.

  10. He's Livid says:

    E-mails and phone calls continue to fall on deaf ears over at Charter Communications with their refusal to carry Premier League Extra, Fox Soccer Plus, and beIN.

  11. Steven P. says:

    Too bad Cox hasn’t signed on yet. I may have to switch to Uverse if Cox doesn’t add beIN soon.

  12. Luke says:

    If I order the sports package would this give me BeInHD and would it bring back the FoxSoccerHD channel which was replaced least in my package by FXMovies or whatever.

  13. Rick says:

    Who gives a crap about Bein be added if GolTV is being taken away. The Bundesliga is twice the league La Liga is.
    Don’t pay for the sports package and expect to get GolTV. AT&T, in all their brilliance, let the contract expire. Looks like no Bayern Munich this weekend & that sucks b/c they’re playing Bayer Leverkusen and that’s going to be one hell of a game.
