BeIN Sports aims to sign distribution deal with Telefonica

Tuesday 25 August 2015 | 09:25 CET | News
Qatar's beIN Sports is finalising a distribution deal with Telefonica in Spain, its partner Mediapro says, and is tipped to bid for domestic TV rights for La Liga games. According to The National, beIN Sports this year launched beIN Sports En Espanol, which shows football fixtures from the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, among other tournaments. It has secured deals for the Spanish channel to be carried on the Vodafone, Orange TV and Telecable networks, but not yet with Telefonica, which became Spain's largest domestic pay-TV operator after its takeover of Canal+ this year.
