You’ve got to love products that do what they say on the tin. beIN SPORTS CONNECT is exactly as advertised: a streaming network that beams out non-stop action to armchair fans like us. Since its 2011 inception, the beIN network has been in a constant state of expansion, adding more and more exclusive sporting events and leagues to its ranks.

That said, it has its fair share of rivals in this global market of ours and as such doesn’t offer the end user everything. So let’s take stock right now and see if you really ought to be in beIN.

How much does beIN SPORTS CONNECT cost?

You’ve got a binary decision to make here, sports fans. You can sign up for a monthly pass for a modest outlay of $14.95 or there’s a yearly commitment for $164.95 per annum. You should also know that beIN doesn’t deal in hidden additional pay-per-view costs, which is nice.

It’s a very simple process, head over to the beIN SPORTS website. Choose the plan you are after or use a voucher if you are lucky enough to have one, enter some details and you are off and running.

Another option that gives you access to beIN SPORTS is through fellow streaming platform fuboTV. It will cost you a little more for the monthly package – $15.99 per month – and gives you access to 8 channels in total, including 3 beIN channels, Fight Network and Paramount Network. We have more details in our fuboTV review.

What content does beIN offer?

beIN has expanded into 10 separate channels, plus beIN SPORTS XTRA, a 24/7 on-demand sports, news and highlights channel. It’s worth noting that when the world is short on sport, a number of these channels will air consumer content and house renovation shows. That or it’ll simply list “no event scheduled”.

However, when sport is on you can tune into beIN to get the latest action or a number of replays. For starters there is loads of European soccer, including Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid facing off in La Liga. Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue, Trophée des Champions, the Copa del Rey, the Spanish Segunda División and Turkey’s Süper Lig are also on beIN. Out of Africa you can watch the CAF World Cup Qualifiers, Africa Cup of Nations and Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.

From the Americas you can watch Brazil’s Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, Copa do Brasil, Campeonato Paulista, Copa América and CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers. Last but not least we have yet more soccer in the North American Soccer League and CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers.

Looking beyond the beautiful game, beIN offers boxing, Major League Wrestling, Tuff N Uff (MMA), Handball EHF Champions League and drone racing, according to the current list on its website.
