Front Row managing director Gianluca Chandra described the deal as one of the biggest in the company’s history.
BeIN deputy CEO Yousef Al-Obaidly said that it was imperative for the company to align with independent content aggregators as it launched its entertainment portfolio.
BeIN Media unveiled a suite of entertainment channels last month to complement its sports offering. The company is offering 20 HD channels across multiple genres.
