beIN Sports is an Australian and New Zealander pay television sports network that was launched in 2007 as Setanta Sports.

In late 2014, Setanta Sports Australia was acquired by the beIN Media Group. As a result, on 24 November 2014, the channel was rebranded as beIN Sports.[1][2]

The channel airs football, Rugby Union, tennis and European handball events. Its broadcast rights include Football League Cup, Football League Championship, Ligue 1, German Bundesliga, La Liga, Italian Serie A, SPFL, RBS 6 Nations, Major League Soccer and WTA.

In September 2019, Sky Sport ink four-year partnership with beIN for extensive soccer coverage.[3] In New Zealand, beIN Sports is broadcast of Sky Sports 7, and is promoted as Sky Sports 7 beIN Sports.
