As seen with the outrage Sling TV’s NBA Finals snafu caused on Twitter recently, it’s safe to say that sports are still near-and-dear to those who consume television, whether it be through traditional cable or through over-the-top services. With this realization, PlayStation Vue is making huge strides to provide live sports to their subscribers.
Now, the beIN Connect app is available through PlayStation Vue.
beIN Connect is a media company that brings unique sports channels that cannot be found elsewhere. With access to beIN Connect, 11 sports channels are available for live-stream that include NCAA football, basketball, and baseball, as well as professional soccer, rugby, and motorsports.
Typically, a beIN subscription costs $18 a month. However, with PlayStation Vue, access to all 11 sports channels via beIN is free.
Sports fanatics who are PlayStation Vue subscribers have another reason to rejoice. Over 200 local ABC affiliates are set to soon join PlayStation Vue. This means access to NBA games, Saturday Night Football, and the Indy Car Series, among many others.
