Best alternatives to PlayStation Vue for beIN SPORTS and other vital channels

PlayStation Vue subscribers were rocked this week with the news that beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS en Español and beIN SPORTS Connect have been dropped from the legal streaming service.

The result has caused many Vue subscribers to cancel their subscriptions and begin looking for an alternative that not only fits their budget but also features all of the channels they want to watch.

Thankfully, there are several streaming options to consider. We review the leading contenders below:

1) fuboTV

For soccer fans, fuboTV offers the most comprehensive soccer package online. In addition to FS1, FS2, NBCSN and other mainstay sports networks, fuboTV addresses the needs of hardcore sports fans by offering beIN SPORTS Connect (all integrated into fubo Premier), beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS en Español, FOX Soccer Plus, FOX Sports regional networks, authentication with FOX Sports GO, as well as Chelsea TV, GolTV, TyC Sports, Universo, all of the Univision channels, Telemundo and many other networks.

In light of PlayStation Vue losing access to beIN SPORTS network, fuboTV has announced a limited time promotion of 40% off fuboTV Premier package for 2 months.

If you’re considering switching to fuboTV, now’s the time to do it. The promotion ends Friday, June 23.

fuboTV has so many channels that cover sports, news and entertainment, that there are too many to list here. We have compiled a comparison guide for soccer fans to help with your streaming decision making process. The only networks that are missing of value to soccer fans are the ESPN channels.

2) Sling TV

While Sling Blue and Sling Orange don’t include beIN SPORTS or beIN SPORTS en Español, you can add beIN SPORTS to your Sling Blue or Sling Orange package by paying an additional $5 per month to get the Best of Spanish TV Extra package.

With Sling TV, you can pick and choose the different types of streaming packages on top of the base Sling Orange ($20 per month) or Sling Blue ($25 per month).

The only disadvantage with Sling TV is that beIN SPORTS Connect is not available, which provides access to a whole array of soccer games not included with beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español.

3) Sling World Sports

One of the best kept secrets at Sling TV is the Sling World Sports package, which is a standalone streaming package for just $10 per month and includes beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español.

With Sling World Sports, you can get your access to beIN SPORTS channels (except beIN SPORTS Connect). And then you can subscribe separately to fubo Premier, PlayStation Vue, DIRECTV NOW or other streaming services on top of it. Sure, you’ll have two streaming services to offer you what you need, but it’s a small price to pay for access to a ton of content.

    Are there any indications on BeIN’s long-term strategy with their content specifically BeIN Sports Connect being offered as a standalone directly from BeIN? I understand that they’ve rated their value at escalating pricing, but fail to see any value in them not playing ball with so many providers. What am I missing? Thanks for mentioning the SlingTV World Sports option, btw.

      I have no idea. I think that even in the over-the-top era, bundling is important. BeIn can easily sign bundling agreements with other over-the-top providers, so they don’t have to deal with individual customers.
