Also some people are college kids and work with what they can get instead of purchasing DTV..
The DirecTV comment is a non-starter for me. It's for the jackasses that are playing the "if you can even find that channel" or "I don't live in an urban area" card.
BeIN isn't the Bulgarian Cooking Network 3, only available with the original 20 foot wide satellite dish. It's on DirecTV and Comcast (apparently.) I assume the "poor college student" is paying SOMEBODY for some sort of TV service, if it isn't DTV... Call a bar. "Do you have DirecTV? No? Thanks." Do that over and over until somebody says yes.
And if you live out in Bumblefrick, Alabama and are lamenting the channel choices the one shitty cable provider in your little hamlet is providing for you... Here's an idea: Trim some of the overgrowth around your trailer, take the tin foil off of your windows, shimmy up on top of the trailer, and mount a damn DirecTV dish.
The "waaaaaaahhhhhh, I can't find the game" shite needs to stop. It *might* have been valid for the first US match that BeIN broadcasted, when they had only been on the air a week.
Everybody has known for a while how the road matches would be broadcast. Everybody has had time to either get DirecTV, raise a shite storm with Cox (
) or figure out which bar near you has DTV. Time to quit whining and get on board.
