beIN confirms it has severed ties with du in UAE
It looks like anyone in Abu Dhabi hoping to watch the World Cup at home through telecoms company du is out of luck.
Broadcaster beIN, which has the exclusive rights to screen the tournament has issued a statement saying its services have been withdrawn from du’s network as of June 2.
It says the current contract between the two parties expired on May 31 and it has not been renewed.
Etisalat will still be screening the games, with more details available here on their package.
It was confirmed by du that those who had signed up for the beIN sports channels or the package available for the upcoming Wrold Cup wouldn’t be charged for the service if it was not running.

It’s understood public venues that are due to show the World Cup shouldn’t be affected, as many deal receive beIN directly though satellites.
