French court upholds ruling against beIN Sports in favor of Arabsat

  • Arabsat also said it had received “unprecedented financial compensation” from the Qatari-owned network

The Arab Satellite Communications Organization (Arabsat) said on Thursday that a French court had upheld an earlier ruling dismissing allegations by beIN Sports.

Arabsat also said it had received “unprecedented financial compensation” from the Qatari-owned network, which was imposed by the court, after its appeal was rejected.

“This clearly proves the falsehood of claims and vindicates Arabsat’s position against these irresponsible accusations,” Arabsat said.

The court case relates to accusations from beIN Sports that Arabsat facilitated illegal satellite broadcasts from a piracy network known as “beoutQ”.

In its statement, Arabsat rejected allegations made against it this week by FIFA and other football federations “which contain disgraceful repetitions of the beIN network’s claims.”
