Anyone using the BeIn Sports Connect app?

Yep, I tried it once. THB49 for a days football coverage. It didn't stream perfectly, but it did quite a good job.

It would be interesting to see what kind of resolution they provide.

 

Although they say HD they also talk about iOS and Android so I suspect that the mobile/tablet market is what they are targetting.

 

I wonder what you'd get on a large screen TV?

 

They also specify a minimum connection speed of 10 Mbps... (to download from where I wonder?)

I use it on my Android Box.

Watch on large screen TV.

Works well and has catch up.

 

Not perfect as it is a little jerky.

It only cost a couple of hundred baht a month so why not try it?

Not much to lose if no good.

 

I think it works better using Chrome browser than it does on the Android app.

Very poor live streaming on my Android boxes and received this response from Bein Connect: "We are currently do not support casting for Android Box ,it will definitely be in our developing plan for the future. We would recommend watch via on behalf website"

Catch-up plays well but can take a while to become available!

Currently watching the Andy Gray Richard Keys show on catch up.
Very watchable. Quite an interesting programme also.

Yes, I used it last night to watch the City v Liverpool game and will watch yesterday's other games on catch up today.

 

The quality was good, no buffering or delays, very affordable and easy to setup - no problems setting up my account or logging in.

 

A thumbs up from me.

After umpteen attempts to open an account,finally did it,clicking cars and roads to prove

i am not a robot.so invested 99 Thb,for a week, first attempt to play ,nothing happen,

message on screen about DRM: Failed to create and initialize a MediaKeys object, ????

sent them email.it finally started to play, the action and commentary do not synch,

and the movements are sticky, that's on Windows 10,so tried it on Android,no better.

 

I am supposed to be on 100/20 tot fibre,so pleased i only wasted 99 Thb,i watched

City Vs Liverpool last night on a free android app, the picture just as good,no buffering,

much better than Bein.

It was working not too bad last night ,watching Swansea Vs Toon, 

the only time it buffered,was when the goal was scored !.for 99 THB

a month it looks to be a bargain,dont know why it needs to buffer,is

the server not in Thailand ?

Could you  please tell me how you managed to pay for theBein account cos I've tried loads of times with credit/debit cards all of which say server error. I emailed them about this, their reply was it has to be a Thai Bank card, no problem tried my Kasikorn card, same result. Then thought about the True Walletvwhich even if you can read thai requires a Thai ID card no (passport no good), so I am stuck as don't see any other avenue unless

you can get the gf or mrs to sign up for you. Informed Bein to get international credit cards etc on their system to faciltate foreigners. Watch this space, a long time no doubt.
