You can also take advantage of 7-day free trial.
Both FuboTV and Sling TV offer month to month rolling contracts. For the sports enthusiast, FuboTV provides the best sports package because it includes a total of eight BeIN channels, where Sling TV only offers one in its Sports Package add-on.
Live Streaming Through BeIN Sports Connect
Cable or Satellite subscribers and customers with FuboTV or the Sling Sports Extra Package can stream live content directly on BeIN Sports Connect. Live streaming is available on all major smart devices.
Live Streaming BeIN Sports Outside the US
- BeIN sports isn’t available everywhere. The company operates in the Middle East, North Africa, Eastern Asia, Australia, New Zealand, France, Canada, and the United States.
- In Canada, you can purchase a stand-alone subscription for BeIN Sports, and an annual pass through BeIN Sports Connect.
- Australia offers subscription options through Foxtel, Foxtel Now, BeIN Sports Connect, and Fetch. Only Fetch and Foxtel allows you to record the action, and all but Fetch give you access to on-demand programming.
However, BeIN often require residency in a country to stream content from that country. For example, you can purchase a standalone BeIN subscription in Canada or Australia. However, to qualify, the billing address on your credit card must be associated with the country to be eligible.
Using a VPN and connecting to a server in Canadian or Australian will not grant you access to BeIN sports channels in Canada or Australia. Making matters worse, you generally cannot qualify for a credit card in Canada or Australia without both a local address and an in-country bank account.
The Benefits of a VPN When Streaming BeIN Sports
Viewing restrictions by network or by country can make it difficult to watch your favorite sports and teams from anywhere in the world.
Sports programming has strict licensing agreements with Television channels. These programming contracts can lead to licensing restrictions and geo-location blocking based on your country of residence.
Likewise, buying a standalone subscription in Canada or Australia will also allow you to watch Canadian or Australian programming from anywhere in the world.
Additionally, you also benefit from improved security and the online privacy and anonymity afforded by VPN services.
