Doha-based beIN Sports has added a third channel to its existing pair of sports channels, which mostly carry soccer matches. Its channel 3 will carry rugby, basketball, handball, athletics, judo and volleyball.

The channel comes ‘free’ to existing subscribers who pay €12 a month.

BeIN Sports claims more than 2.5 million subscribers, and added 850,000 during the FIFA World Cuip event.
