The Classic



Edit
By the way, this is the original tweet from Net (the Indonesian channel in question) which the video came from:




And a bit of off-topic here, but if you wonder what "R-BO" on the bottom right corner in the Indonesian video means, I don't know Indonesian language, but judging from the wording in this post, it has something to do with age classifications, I think.

DAZN, which has a tranche of domestic Serie A rights, apparently hasn't done so well with their first weekend of streaming matches:

Do you really need three independent companies to confirm which bird a channel is on? Surely you just point a dish at a known part of the sky and tune your receiver.

(I feel they could have clearer messaging here.)

What was the point of that message?
All its doing is flagging up that pirated content is out there, and that's where you'll find it.

It all seems odd.
But, BeoutQ, is a great play on an existing broadcaster name.

On the BeIN website they helpfully have screenshots of BeOutQ's coverage so the quality can be judged too. Don't think the DOG will have many fans here at TVF though.

Anyway it looks like it will continue as the Saudi authorities have fined BeIN and taken away their broadcasting license in the country.

Well, if its 'pirated' content, how is BeoutQ getting a very clear HD feed of the Premier league?

Something fishy, here...

Via a complicit Satellite operator, it seems.

The BeOutQ DOG is big enough to cover the BeIN DOG but BeIN also have a transparent BeIN logo which moves distractingly up and down the screen and for non-Live stuff a banner along bottom of the screen in Arabic, English or French (depending on channel) about BeOutQ and the whole situation.
