Uk company Pace is to supply BeIN sports receivers
I am posting about this news item, simply to avoid any confusion. Several people have already asked me if they can have the new media boxes for French tv. This BeIN sports box is ONLY for the middle east.
Well done Pace though, its Uk business has gone from strength to strength supplying Sky with their Uk receivers plus South Africa s satellite boxes and other major contracts.
The BeIN sports broadcaster is owned by Middle Eastern company Al Jazeera, who have their own Al Jaz sports, familiar to many sports clubs and pubs. Currently Al Jazeera customers are using the official boxes, made by Humax. In the middle east Al Jazeera has the rights to Premier League football and more recently added Formula One racing.
The latest offering from Pace is a very sophisticated media server with built in 1 TB hard drive and will enable the users to watch on multiple screens via a network.
