BeIN MOVES TO EUTELSAT
beIN MEDIA GROUP has migrated its transponder capacity from Nilesat to Eutelsat 8 degrees West. beIN subscribers may continue to watch their channels on both satellites until December 31, 2018. For an uninterrupted service after that, subscribers will need to ensure that their set-top boxes are reconfigured. The majority of set top boxes will be reconfigured automatically however some older set top boxes will need manual updates.
“The switch of satellites provides an increase in platform security and control, and improved resilience overall. These efforts were made to ensure beIN MEDIA GROUP can continue to provide its viewers and fans with its unrivalled library of entertainment, live sport action and major international events in the highest standards available across all its platforms,” according to a statement from beIN Media Group.
