Beginning immediately, beIN SPORTS XTRA en Español is available via Prende TV, the streaming service from TelevisaUnivision. The addition of the new channel means that when Prende TV becomes ViX on March 31, 2022, beIN SPORTS XTRA en Español will be available on the free ad-supported streaming platform.

The decision to rename and redesign Prende TV to become ViX is happening only a year after Prende TV launched in March, 2021. Currently, Prende TV features more than 40 streaming channels and 10,000 hours of VOD programming.

What XTRA includes

The addition of beIN SPORTS XTRA en Español to Prende TV (and subsequently ViX) will bring select soccer games into more homes. The streaming service includes select games from Ligue 1, Turkish SüperLig, Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana. Plus, the 24/7 streaming network also includes highlights and documentaries, as well as other sports.

Getting access to beIN SPORTS’ biggest events such as PSG and major Copa Libertadores games, beIN SPORTS XTRA en Español is not it. Instead the content is interspersed with advertising. Even recent live events including the Africa Cup of Nations featured commercial breaks in the middle of action during the game.

To get all of the vast majority of content that beIN SPORTS offers, you still need either beIN SPORTS or beIN SPORTS en Español.

Still, beIN SPORTS XTRA en Español is free. So you do get what you pay for.

ViX adds more soccer

ViX does offer far more programming than just the XTRA channel. For example, TelevisaUnivision recently added select matches from the Colombian and Peruvian soccer leagues to its streaming platform.

Recently when asked about ViX’s growth as a streaming platform, Juan Carlos Rodriguez, president of Sports Global Enterprises of TelevisaUnivision said, “We will continue expanding our sports offering to position ViX as an incredible soccer destination for Spanish-Language speakers around the globe like only we can do.”
