beIN SPORTS is now available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch so you can watch Barcelona, Real Madrid, Serie A, Capital One Cup, Ligue Un and other La Liga teams live via the DishWorld service.
DishWorld, not to be confused with DISH Network although they’re part of the same company (you don’t have to be a DISH subscriber in order to use DishWorld), and not to be confused with beIN SPORT Play (they’re completely different products), is a live streaming service that features sports and international channels that you can watch on your TV, phone, tablet or Roku device.
Once you sign up for the DishWorld Sports package via the DishWorld website (no contracts required; $10/month), setup takes a few minutes. If you’re an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch user, you can download the DishWorld app via iTunes.
Or you can download an app via their website if you have a PC, Mac, Android tablet or phone, Roku and Samsung TV or Samsung Blu-Ray devices).
The interface is easy to use and not overwhelming. And the streaming quality when I used the app was superb. No buffering. No pixelation. Just very high quality video and audio.
There’s also a “Watchlist” feature if you want to mark certain programming for viewing at a later date.
With the Sports package, you can watch programming from any of the following channels: beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS Espanol, One World Sports, Universal Sports (which offers rugby, cycling and other sports) and the Nautical Channel. With One World Sports, you can watch Arsenal TV, Chelsea TV and Bayern Munich TV.
DishWorld fills a void for two completely different types of customers: (1) for soccer fans who unable to subscribe to beIN SPORTS because their TV provider doesn’t offer it (COX, Charter, etc), and (2) for cordcutters, who want to free themselves from a TV contract but are interested in a streaming only package.
With a 30-day subscription to DishWorld, you can select from a ton of games via beIN SPORTS.
beIN SPORTS has the exclusive rights to La Liga, Serie A, Ligue Un, Copa America 2015, Championship, League Cup, Coppa Italia, Copa del Rey and more. One World Sports has the rights to Chelsea TV, Arsenal TV, Bayern Munich TV, J-League and more.
