beIN SPORTS has reached a long-term content distribution renewal agreement with DISH and Sling TV in the U.S.

The renewal ensures that beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español will continue to deliver customers premiere sports programming, including international soccer matches from LaLiga and Ligue 1, races from the MotoGP and MotoAmerica championship series, and tennis matches featuring the world’s top players from the Women’s Tennis Association.

“This renewal, which allows beIN SPORTS’ availability across the U.S. via both satellite and over-the-top streaming, could not come at a more exciting time given the new soccer season and the kick-off of the Conference USA football season,” said Antonio Briceño, beIN SPORTS’ deputy managing director for the U.S. and Canada. “These popular sporting events have proven to be fan favorites, and we’re thrilled that both our existing DISH and Sling TV viewers will be able to catch all of the action this fall.”

“Our goal is to deliver great content at a great value, connecting our viewers to the news, sports and entertainment they want in both Spanish and English,” said Alfredo Rodriguez Diaz-Marta, VP of Sling and DishLATINO. “We are pleased to continue our relationship with beIN SPORTS, delivering fans the season’s must-see soccer matches and coverage.”
