beIN Sports has renewed the rights to broadcast Serie A matches until the 2017-2018 season. The new Serie A season will kick off on August 22nd on beIN for the 4th consecutive year. beIN Sports acquired the Serie A rights from FOX Soccer in 2012.
It is good to see that beIN decided to renew the rights for Serie A. I do wish that beIN was available to more viewers in the U.S. and maybe at no cost :)
The one thing that frustrates me beyond belief is when beIN plays the same exact match on both their English and Spanish Channels. I mean the whole purpose of having the two channels is to be able to show two different games at the same time! But nonetheless it is good to see that the Serie A rights have been renewed and most people in the U.S. will be able to continue watching calcio.
