Monday 5 November 2012 | 09:50 CET | News
Quatari pay TV operator beIN Sport, a newcomer to France, has won broadcast rights to NBA basketball games from the US for four years, Les Echos reports. The channel reportedly paid EUR 5 million to be able to show in France six live games every night and six other games, either live, recorded or in highlights format, every day during the regular season. Canal Plus, which previously held these rights, has also lost European football's Champions League to beIn Sport. The latter is charging EUR 11 a month for NBA content. It is available from all satellite and IPTV operators.
