Signed up for a month and pretty pleased with it. The arsenal game played without fault. Seems like a decent offering as well

Is there ability to Chromecast with the iOS app? Their FAQ is quite confusing in this regard and suggests it may be the android app only. My laptop is too slow/old to set up casting from that.

I don't think so, can't find it on my old iPad

PLP was great for those of us that support the smaller teams, haven't even bothered with BeIN offering as it sounds so bad for me. I ended using Vader Streams on Kodi. All games are on-demand and live in 720p (on demand is in the beta stage but has worked fine for the past 4 or so months I've been using it.)

 

 

 

 

I have tried Vadar Streams on Kodi, but am not impressed. There is way too much buffering. Will give the on demand option a go. 

 

Re the Bein sports app. Are all the games available like it was with PLP? Or is it just some? As I don't have sky and don't want it. But I was of the impression the Liverpool v Arsenal game was on the satellite option only and not the app. Can someone confirm? 

 

 

 

I had a look at their site and was thinking of signing up, but their site seemed terrible(no info), which made me think I'll stay away until I find out more.

Every game is available live, and nearly every game is available on-demand (seem to be available around an hour after live has finished). I think I read that they've got licensing to have 29 games per team available on-demand, so a small handful of games may be missing from on demand throughout the season (they have had every game for the first 3 rounds available, then they'll stop dropping off some games).

I signed up for bein connect ( I dont have sky). I was impressed with the app and the quality of live and 'catch-up' games, the quality of the live game was much better than I got out of premierleague pass. However, even with gigabit fibre I still suffered disconnections during the man utd game, the buffer never seemed to catch up...I would have to drop to the main menu and select the live option again and it would always immediately recover. Next game I will try it on a PC or laptop to make sure it wasnt just my phone (HTC ONE M8) causing it

I've been trying to find out where the League Cup coverage will be this year. Last season, Sky Sport (usually 2 or 3) broadcast the BeIN coverage (somewhat confusingly).

 

No sign of it on the planner at the moment and trying to get a helpful answer from either BeIN or Sky is proving the usual challenge. Any ideas?

OK, so , there may only be me that cares about this but:

 

 

 

BeIN have just confirmed with me that broadcast rights for the League Cup in NZ are currently with a '3rd party' and no deal has been agreed to broadcast these games.

 

 

 

Always seems a real shame when this happens and means people have to resort to 'other means' to see the coverage.......

I gotta say that I am nicely surprised with beIN after last year's experience. Loving the service now. Definitely well worth the money they asking for it. If they offered the 90 in 30 or 90 in 15 highlight shows, I'd be over the moon.
