Price increase for beIN through Sky TV from $11.95 to $16.10 from August 1

Not sure if the online platform beIN Connect is increasing in price also?

Currently it's $17.99 per month

When the fudge will they add an on demand viewing capability to beIN Connect so you don't have to stay up all night to watch games?

Or stream more than one EPL game at a time live?

At least they have a lot of pre-season friendlies this month on beIN 2:

Manchester United vs. LA Galaxy live 2 pm Sunday on beIN Sports 2 in NZ

Man Utd vs. Real Salt Lake live 2 pm Tuesday beIN 2

See here for NZ viewing schedule for all pre-season friendlies on beIN Sport 2:

Cool !

Have been missing my football fix.

Always fun to see the new signings debut & youngsters and squad players you don't normally see get a run in the pre-season games.

Plus all the transfer speculation from the commentators.

BeIN online has not worked for the entire season last season, despite paying for it. Am looking at dumping Sky altogether anyway in the next few weeks. Sick of the self promos all the friggen time.

Honestly the offering from some kids in their bedrooms nowadays is superb. Soccerstreams for streams; will get HD and English commentary basically every time (compared to SkyGo it is faultless). Then with Football Highlights you can watch full replays of matches within a few hours.

I don't mind paying for a quality service but these two 'free' methods blast Sky/beIN out of the water.

And that's the problem. The guys who own the content don't have the means to deliver it. The guys who have the means to deliver it but don't legally have the content.

Ultimately a year in and Bein still have a shark platform that doesn't compete with the predecessor and they have the balls to charge more for it.

Would love to know Bein v PLP # comparison to see if simply having the content is enough.

One year down 2 more years to go? Hopefully Bein give up on NZ by the end of it.

If you've got friends in Australia, try and see if they can sign-up for Optus for you, or in my case a kind friend has kindly given me one of his log-ins. A cheap VPN to circumvent the geoblock and you're away laughing.

I can find a free stream easy enough these days, that if I do watch it live then its ok. And yea, fullmatchesandshows is a great alternative for delayed games. No way am I going to pay for it

Call me a bit of a dickhead but I'm not a huge fan of supporting the Qatari government's enterprise either. Fudge them.

I've been using a paid service which results in on demand and live streaming of every major league/sporting event  on the planet which has a tv camera present. it's changed the game for me and how i consume sporting content.

Waiting to see how the content holders will respond. I hope it will be the dazn model of response, not a draconian legal response against consumers.

Until a service that is fairly priced and usable is available I have no moral issue with streaming. Same as I did for movies, TV shows and Music before Netflix and Spotify. PLP was good and I paid for it. Won't be going near BeIn though. soccerstreams all the way.

Any of the other players in NZ/AU has a crack at the rights. It's well known Bein over paid for the AU/NZ rights and royally f*cked up - they wanted exclusivity and didn't get it.

But to be honest if they didn't and I'm left with illegal streams and on demand via other website's I've still got more access to the content than Bein provides. That's the tradgidy of it all.

Vader Streams. When used with the kodi plugin, their matchcentre EPG of specific sporting events is awesome. 7 days of on-demand content

I love the current platform. Better quality and I can record up to four games at a time and watch when it suits me. This meets my needs.

I get my coverage from Vodafone via cable and haven't been advised of any price increase yet.

I have the same attitude to cars - until companies such as Ferrari and Aston Martin start providing me with what I believe to be fairly priced and readily available models, I have no moral issue with stealing them.

The main difference is Ferrari doesn't get exclusive rights for the roads. If the government was charging exorbitant rates for said roads and leaving them in a worse condition that a few years ago you'd probably feel better about driving without a registration.

perhaps, but it is the attitude of "I don't like the price of that product offered, so I steal it" that I don't like. Every one can wah on about it being a victim less crime, and claim that if Sky/BeIN offered them exactly what they wanted they would be happy to pay, but it is still piracy and therefore stealing in my book.
