How to get beIN sports decoders in East African countries; Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and their installation with Eutelsat 7 West satellite dishes? How to watch beIN sports channels in Kenya and other east african countries? The expensive monopoly DSTV has been fighting back its long lost glory.
Dstv Kenya, the most expensive pay-TV Company in Kenya and Sub-Saharan Africa now on its knees soon to be replaced by the very cheap beIN sports decoders.
After increasing subscription prices now the monopoly the Dstv enjoys is slowly coming to an end especially for Premium football content.
Now DSTV is losing customers to Startimes and Zuku for viewers who do not like football content.
Now some people will buy ZUKU, StarTimes and others like Azam while they watch football at a pub somewhere with beIN sports decoders connected.
So where does this leave clever Kenyans who want to watch the EPL from the comfort of their houses? The answer is beIN sports.
Who or what is beIN sports? beIN sports is a company that has acquired the rights to broadcast premium football content in the Middle East and North Africa regions including Somalia.

They use the Eutelsat 7 West satellite to beam their content and this same beam is easily receivable in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Uganda and with bigger dishes in Tanzania too.
beIN sports is live in Kenya and other East Africa at large.
But it is not legal to have a beIN Sports decoder and subscription card in Kenya.
However, Only Dstv has the right to air the Premium football content from Europe at whatever rates they prefer, so if they get you they will seize your equipment and probably press charges against you. Why?
All the Supersport channels are all possible in the Premium Package costing over Ksh7000 per month, while beIN sports offers all football action for an amount averaging Ksh13, 000 per year.
Shows everything from the EPL, Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga, Carling Cup, FA Cup and any other you might think of.
