Default English football / movies

Hi all


Has anyone subscribed to BeIN Sports online? If so, what has your experience been?


I have just arrived in Doha and looking into best way to watch premier league football. I am also interested in how best to watch English movies without having to go through VPN.


Thanks

If you are a sports fan, get it.

I got the decoder/card and 1 year subscription last year for 1080QAR (got it for the WC)

This year I didnt renew so I dont know how much it would be.

I wouldnt go for online.

But not all of the games have English commentary. Luckily I support Man City so get to watch all their games in full (the next day) on AD Sports with a pro-City, English commentary.

Use the language change button on the controller . You get all English commentry here if you have the Bein box , you just change from Arabic to English . Not so sure if that's applicable through a UAE provider though .

download a program called Kodi from the internet.
get on you tube and teach yourself how it works. its super easy
sky sports, uk tv channels, all over the world tv channels, movies etc..all there..all free.
internet speeds in Qatar are pretty good so you can stream live tv and it works great.

BeIN Sports? There are good reasons why many people know it as Bellend Sports...

Language options are 'Primary' or nothing. BeIn don't respond to queries about it and Du just say it's BeIn's fault. Not to mention the HGJHHLFKLJ that appears in a big black box randomly throughout games.

Yes.

Got to assume you're joking. Gray I enjoy listening to, he's actually got some good points to make, has an opinion that isn't always boring and genuinely knows his football from the correct perspective (played, and was very good by all accounts).

Keys i used to defend. Even after his 'banter'. Now I just find him intolerable. Tries to play devil's advocate but goes to such bizarre lengths to create contrived and idiotic opinions that just baffle me. It's good to challenge the pundits into giving answers and their opinions but I'm not sure anyone cares what that helmet thinks about anything.

Ha ha ha , aye mate only pulling your leg , it's a decent show though especially as it's produced here . You'll see the pair of them out here every weekend with the guests . All smashed to pieces .

Decent craic though , i've been in their company a few times and they've always got time for a bit craic with anyone that bowls over for a few words.

Fair enough isn't it - they've got to expect it. Shearer was here a while ago and didn't mind standing for pictures once in the bar upstairs. People were bugging him at brunch table though which seemed a bit awkward.

I like some of the guests they get on, maybe not the two this week, bit dull, but when they've got people like Allardyce, he's interesting because he's still thinking like a manager and has some great info to share.

It beats most things because it's all the games, so shouldn't really complain!
