Du increases beIN sports package fee by 40%

Thursday 4 August 2016 | 10:39 CET | News
UAE operator Du has followed rival Etisalat in raising the price of its beIN sports package by more than 40 per cent and not allowing subscribers to sign up for the AED 90 package, reports The National. The increase from AED 77 a month to AED 110 took effect on 01 August, with more sports and children's channels to complement the existing BeIN sports channels. Etisalat announced in July that it had increased the price of its beIN sports package from AED 78 a month to AED 110, blaming the rise on BeIN's price increase.
