beIN MEDIA GROUP has migrated its transponder capacity from Nilesat to Eutelsat 8 degrees West, according to a report in The Gulf Times.
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.
beIN SPORTS channels HD1, HD2, HD3, HD4, HD2 MAX and HD3 MAX will now be available on Frequency MHz 11013.
beIN SPORTS channels HD, HD5, HD6, HD7, HD8 and HD9 will be available on Frequency MHz 11054.
beIN SPORTS channels beIN News, HD10, HD1 MAX and HD4 MAX will be available on Frequency MHz 12604.
“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.
The majority of set top boxes will be reconfigured automatically.
