La LIGA bring it back

Bring La liga soccer back

Re: La LIGA bring it back

I would like to know how is it that a large company like Comcast can't get the rights to televise European soccer. The soccer sports package I bought last year to watch European soccer is useless. You have to get beIN SPORTS USA in your sports package. They have the rights to all European soccer. La Liga Spain's league. The French league & the Italian League. You can see the Premier Lerague thru Fox Sports. My opinion is that the Spanish League (La LIGA) is a better league than the Premier League. Since the majority of the time when English teams play ther Spanish teams they lose. The 2 top Teams REAL MADRID & F.C. BARCELONA are in the Spanish league. How could Comcast not negotiate to get these games but you have the satellite companies in this country with access to all European games. It is absurd that Comcast does not have access to beIN SPORTS USA. The world does not rotate around the US. Please, Please get beIN SPORTS USA. If this continues I might have to drop the Sports package & get me Direct TV to watch my teams in the Spanish league. I am sure that lots of people are going to be dropping Comcast if you people don't get beIN SPORTS USA. Letting you know from a very dissatisfied customer.

I'm very dissapointed by Comcast not transmitting the Spanish games.  I don't see the point of having soccer channels if you can see Messi and Ronaldo.

Re: La LIGA bring it back

Agree with you 100%!! I went as far as calling Direct TV and setting up an appointment to change my service. Fortunately, I just read Comcast will be offering La Liga soon. Hope it is sooner than later. We already missed the beginning of the season!

Re: La LIGA bring it back

Comcast will supposedly add beIN to their sports entertainment package. However, I dont see any official information from comcast saying when they are going to and what channel is it going to be. Since most European League's have started, we need some explanation from Comcast as to why they are not yet providing it. People can resort to other means to watch these games or drop Comcast because of it. As far as I know, DirectTV and DishNetwork are already broadcasting this channel.

I am so mad, I have to watch the Barca Games on Crappy  internet feeds. If comcast does not get the rights to the spanish la liga and the italian il calcio.. then that's lame.

Re: La LIGA bring it back

I absolutely agreed that COMCAST is crazy not to carry the best soccer in the planet: The spanish Soccer League LA LIGA. They moved the games to BeIN  which I CANNOT get. This really gets me mad and I am trying desperaratel to let COMCAST go ... and look for other solutions.

 

I called COMCAST and they told me .... the channel will be coming to my city in 8 weeks. We will see... meanwhile I have not been able to watch the only soccer I care to watch. Even my wife is upset now that she cannot see Messi score goals.

 

Note to COMCAST ... do your job!  

 

 I am in Zip Code 94566   - Make it Happen COMCAST.

They just launched bein sports in the Miami Area.  Look for it is great. All the missing games are there.  I complained back in August for not seeing La Liga, but it's back (at least in Miami).  

 

Good luck.

You need to learn Comcast that football, or soccer as it is called here in the US is the WORLDS game and there are those of us who would pay extra to watch La Liga.  Ligue Un.  Bundesliga etc...   I suggest a COMPLETE soccer package for those of us who love the most beautiful game in the world.

Does anybody from Comcast read this posts?  I beging to wonder how many posts are needed for Comcast to consider doing something about it, or at the very least, to give us an answer.

Two of my friends are considering DirecTv, or any other cable company that would give them an oportunity to watch La Liga games.

Thanks for your feedback.

 

As many here know, the changing television rights landscape also has beIN Sports as a rights-holder and a fairly recent entrant into soccer television with some important matchups.

 

Our programming team is in tune with this changing situation and they talk with our soccer and sports network providers regularly.  

There is La Liga coverage on beIN Sports en Espanol, available in many Comcast areas.

Re: La LIGA bring it back

Ted, howcome we only receive the one Bein sports feed?

 

If I check their schedule there is a whole channel with other content (called Bein Sports TV) and then the channel that we get (called BeinN Sports TV).

 

If I look at the comcast guide it only has the BeinN Sports TV schedule on both the english and spanish channel.

 

I'm not sure if it's incorrect in the online guide, or do we just not receive the other channel?

Comcast only currently offers the one beIN channel; beIN Sports en Espanol.
