Beginning in August, La Liga bein sports soccer broadcasters have a new home in the U. GolTV was the previous home the Europa League. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. So, who will be on beIN Sport? So far, there have been no press releases or any other kind of information handed out to the media on who will be on the new channels.
England's top-tier as well as Wimbledon and the Champions League are being used as pawns in a worsening diplomatic spat between Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Should the piracy continue, beIN Sports, which has lost revenue across the Middle East and Africa, is almost certain to reduce its offer for three-year rights packages for UK sport.
As one of the biggest overseas rights-holders, a renegotiation could have a devastating impact on overall market values.
The Premier League is understood to believe Saudi Arabia's current status as a potential safe-haven for piracy is the greatest legal threat it currently faces. It's what it represents.
It's a long-term partners that are badly damaged and we really need to protect them. The league has now set up an anti-piracy unit in Singapore and has won renewed powers from the High Court to immediately delete illegal streams.
However, all attempts to stop beoutQ have fallen flat. Legal threats have fallen on deaf ears and Saudi Arabia has even ignored warnings that Fifa could eventually ban the nation from competing at the World Cup.
Footballing bodies believe the Middle East nation has so far turned a blind eye to so-called "widespread and flagrant" breaches because of its rift with Qatar, where beIN Sports hold the commercial rights for the Middle East.
The spat has escalated as Qatar prepares to host the World Cup. The channel is broadcast on Arabsat - a Saudi-based satellite network - and beIN Sports is convinced that the broadcaster is supported by the Saudi government.
Al-Obaidly told the Telegraph: "We know who is doing it, where and how they are doing it and also the reasons why. It is brazen commercial theft by Saudi Arabia and a complete disregard of international law and norms.
For the Premier League, the Saudi Arabia is a source of huge frustration as it believes it is winning its war on piracy elsewhere.
Most of beoutQ's viewers are in Africa and the Middle East, but the league is understood to have recently swooped on a shop on north-west London's Edgware Road after investigators discovered it was allegedly selling beoutQ streaming services. One of the most popular illegal streaming service - Ronaldo7 - was closed down after the investigators tracked the business down to a home in Portugal.
The Saudi Government has been contacted for comment. The Daily Telegraph has also made attempts to reach beoutQ. Related Topics.
