Cutting your cable cord doesn’t mean you’ll have to give up watching your favorite sports team. In fact it is quite the opposite with the popularity of streaming services in this country.
Whether you love tennis, hockey, soccer, ruby, or more you can probably find a live stream on BeIN Sports. However because BeIN is such specialty channel it took me a little bit to figure out how to legally stream BeIN sports broadcast for free without cable.
There is several unsavory ways to stream BeiN sports over the internet, but I don’t recommend visiting those type of spammy sites. Why? Because they are usually European sites that’s unregulated, and down right illegal.
What I am going to show you is how to watch BeIN Sports online without cable, but in a way that is 100% legal.
Watch BeIN Sports with Sling TV
The first service, I’d like to bring your attention to is Sling TV, which is owned by Dish network. What is Sling TV you may be asking. If you haven’t caught the countless commercials being aired on major networks like CBS and/or ABC, in a nutshell Sling TV is an online service that allow you to stream live TV over the internet without the need of a cable subscription.
Not only can you watch your favorite sports live as it happen on Sling TV, but you can also use Sling TV to watch other popular channels like ESPN, ESPN2 and CNN. The entry level price on Sling TV is only $20 per month. If you want to include the Sports Extra package, which includes BeIN and a plethora of other channels, you are looking to spend only an extra $5.00.
Yes for only five bucks you’ll be able to watch BeIN Sports, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, SEC Network, ACC Network and more. The total price per month is only $25 with no hidden fees, and no waiting on the cable guy to come hook up wires. The second you complete the sign up process and select your desired package, you’ll be able to start streaming right away. It took me less than ten minutes when I first decided to cut my cable cord for good.
Sling TV also offers a 7 day free trial period, so even if you’re on the fence about cutting your cable cord, you can test drive Sling TV for free for 7 days. The only catch is you must remember to unsubscribe before your seven days is over. I always suggest setting a reminder on your phone so you won’t forget.
Watch BeIN on DirecTV Now
DirecTV Now is a newcomer to the online streaming industry, and they’ve been rumored to be a streaming platform for BeIN Sports broadcast on an extended sports package similar to that of Sling TV.
DirecTV Now is a little more aggressive in their marketing pitch, providing double the channels in their entry level package. This aggressive approach makes Sling’s orange package look like child’s play.
As it stands right now, you can get 100 channels for $35. That price point for 100 channels is a game changer, and will probably force Sling and Playstation Vue to reshuffle their streaming packages.
DirecTV Now hasn’t yet to announce if BeIN will be part of the entry level plan of $35 or if it will be part of an extended sports package. My gut tells me that BeIN will be part of an extended sports package as it is a specialty channel targeting a specific customer base.
Can I Stream BeIN Sport HD Online Anywhere Else Without Cable?
Yes there are other places that you can go to stream BeIN online, but I don’t recommend it. Illegal sites do exist, but I’d suggest to stay away from those sites as the only thing you will get in return is spam and a computer virus. The three legal ways that one can stream BeIN Sports without cable are DirecTV Now, Sling TV and FutbolTV.
