Default beIN Sports

My old subscription expires on the 13th March
I renewed it today, online

I was very surprised to see that the new expiry date is now 26th Feb 2016
They have not renewed from the old date, but from today

Be careful, if you do not renew on the last day you are missing out

If renewal-date <> old-expiry-date then
set new-expiry-date to be old-expiry-date + 365


Hardly rocket science for a programmer with any common sense??

But then what can we expect from the children who write the code these days

nope its always been the case, that they will take the subs when you renew, ie they had a special offer last year for the world cup and you got a discount but only up to a certain date which was actually like 3 weeks before the subs would finish for the normal yearly sports package....

so not its not any different than what has happened in previous years.

They claim the renewal is now $225
as opposed to $150 without the World Cup last last year

Real con merchants

All I want is F1
none of the football rubbish

Agreed, there is little choice for me with the F1

I know what you mean.
To watch F1 I bought a card reader for my DreamBox to watch Al Jazeera
Then I had to buy a new box to watch via Abu Dhabi
Then another box for beIN, last year

Each box costing around $150, compared to an Open box at $40

The beIN box is a gaudy kids toy along side the Abu Dhabi box
and with less features. No way to set the power on channel.
It used to default to the Sport 1 channel, but they have upgraded the
firmware, and now it does remember the last viewed channel

I have never gone the OSN route
far too expensive for far too little

I get most of my TV viewing from torrents

I think BEin's Premier League coverage this year has been very good , good guests and whatever you think about Grays & Keys they put on a decent pundit show .

I did like OSN's coverage a few years ago but then they lost the franchise and the whole coverage for 4 seasons after that went to rats shit.

Some of the games sound far better with the Arabic commentary....
