BeoutQ

Postby blahblah Tue Sep 17, 2019 5:14 am

BeoutQ, the piracy channel initially set up to undermine Qatar's BeIN as part of the Saudi's attempt to isolate Qatar, has become a serious issue for all sports.

The AFC and others have been unable to pursue BeoutQ in the Saudi courts as it is protected politically.

A joint investigation by FIFA, AFC, UEFA, EPL, Bundesliga, La Liga, LFP and Serie A found BeoutQ to be using an Arabsat satellite, and now they are pursuing them.

The hypocracy comes in when these leagues continue to accept Saudi investment.

As for Qatar, they seem to be weathering the regional isolation and have adapted to a 'new normal'.

Now the BeoutQ streaming devices are being sold outside of the Middle East with huge effects on the value of sports services.

There is a good article on Inside World Football by Paul Nicholls that highlights the issue as it currently stands:

An interesting key note speech from BeIN to football rights holders across the world; the value of your product has gone off a cliff.

Piracy, particularly BeoutQ, has resulted in the football streams being non-exclusive and hence all the media companies will be valuing rights on a non-exclusive basis. They are worth a fraction of current prices.

I guess the days of ever spiralling wages and money are well and truly over. How the big leagues who are addicted to the TV money fare may make for ugly viewing.
