Telecom and satellite provider Du got into a forgettable mishap yesterday because of the BeIN Sports Channel but has come to an agreement with the Qatar-owned media network.
BeIN Sports has resumed regular broadcasting
Worry no more Du customers! Their team has come to an agreement with BeIN Sports to broadcast its regular content and will be coming up with offers to watch the FIFA World Cup. Since June 1st evening, they’ve responded to its customers on Twitter about the regular functioning, saying “beIN channels are back and resumed the regular broadcasting. beIN Sports FIFA World Cup package will be available for subscription with du very soon. We’ll inform customers once the subscription starts.”

Broadcasting had stopped on June 3rd
Du customers and especially those into football were taken by surprise when BeIN Sports stopped working on its TV. The channel read “This channel is temporarily unavailable” and led to numerous complains on Du’s Twitter handle. Before BeIN Sports restarted broadcasting, the Du team suggested its users to subscribe to the third party channel, BeIN CONNECT as the pre-World Cup friendly matches had started.
Hello, you can watch beIN Sports channels online or subscribe to beIN CONNECT. Please note, we cannot comment on the quality and pricing of third-party products. The service is owned and managed by beIN. You may visit their website for further details. Thanks

Du and Etisalat have named its network over Zayed Humanitarian Work Day
Don’t be surprised if your smartphone doesn’t show ‘Du’ or ‘Etisalat’ on the network name slot because they’ve dedicated their network name to ‘Zayed Humanitarian Work Day’, which takes place on every 19th day of Ramadan, remembering the late founding father of UAE, His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the legacy he left on humanitarianism.
