beIN Sports Spanish language YouTube launches
May 18, 2022
beIN Sports en Español and beIN Sports XTRA en Español have officially launched on subscription streaming service YouTube TV through its Spanish Plan and Spanish Plus add-on. The launch of the Spanish-language channels serves as continued expansion and growth of distribution following the successful launch of beIN’s English-language channels on the streaming service in 2021 and further demonstrates demand for the network’s sports content.
The Spanish-language flagship and ad-supported channels will bring beIN’s library of live sports and original programming to YouTube TV viewers. The channels offer live sports, news, analysis, and highlights that bring viewers closer to the game and will be available via either the Spanish Plan for new subscribers at $24.99 (€23.70)/month for the first six months, $34.99/month after, or the Spanish Plus add-on for existing YouTube TV Base Plan customers at $9.99/month for the first six months, $14.99/month after. Both packages offer a 7-day free trial.
This launch provides YouTube TV subscribers access to beIN’s portfolio of premium programming including live soccer coverage of the biggest football leagues and tournaments such as Ligue 1, SüperLig, Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, Coupe de France, CAF Champions League, and CAF Confederation Cup, among others, as well as Giro d’Italia, Pro Footvolley Tour and original programming including The Locker Room, Amigas y Rivales, and La Octava.
“beIN Sports continues its fan focus by furthering its distribution on YouTube TV to include its Spanish-language channels, allowing fans to access beIN Sports’ family of networks with ease from coast to coast,” commented Antonio Briceño, Managing Director of beIN Sports North America. “The launch of beIN Sports en Español and beIN Sports XTRA en Español on YouTube TV comes at an exciting time as subscribers will now have access to Ligue 1 featuring Leo Messi in Paris Saint-Germain and the 2022 Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana tournaments as well as Giro d’Italia.”
