beIN Sports is owned and operated by the beIN Media Group which is a spinoff of the infamous Al Jazeera network. The network launched in 2012 but didn’t start broadcasting until 2015 making it one of the newest sports channels. Its first broadcasts were in France. beIN Sports operates in France, United States, Canada, and the Middle East. The network holds the rights to broadcast prominent football tournaments including the UEFA Champions League, Serie A, UEFA Europa, Bundesliga, etc. However, in the US the channel has the rights to broadcast La Liga, MotoGP, Copa del Rey, Serie A, etc. beIN Sports is known for broadcasting sporting events which regular networks like Fox Sports and ESPN do not cover live.
