Australian pay-TV operator Foxtel will entertain its sports subscribers with live coverage of the UEFA Champions League final and EURO 2016, following a deal with beIN Sports.

beINThree HD beIN Sports channels are being added to Foxtel sports on 15 May, boosting the channel offer from nine to 12, without extra charge to subscribers of the package.

In addition to the European club cup finals this May, and all 51 games of the UEFA Euro 2016 international tournament in June, beIN Sports provides ongoing coverage top flight football leagues: La Liga in Spain, Italy’s Serie A, Ligue 1 in France and Germany’s Bundesliga.

Next season’s UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League competitions will also feature on beIN Sports, along with the South American FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, Brazilian Serie A and Sao Paulo Championship.

European Rugby Union also features heavily on the Qatar-based network, with the European Rugby Champions Cup, and the Six Nations tournament live and in HD. The Wallabies and All Black Spring Tour in November will also be shown, with live games against Wales, Scotland and Ireland.

“The addition of these new dedicated sports channels from our partners at beIN Sports is a huge win for sports fans who subscribe to Foxtel, greatly increasing the value of a subscription. The channels will be compulsory viewing for fans of international football and rugby and complement the already great line-up of sports channels on Foxtel,” said Richard Freudenstein, outgoing CEO, Foxtel.

Yousef Al-Obaidly, deputy CEO, beIN Media Group, added: “The new Australian beIN Sports channels are a key component of our Asia Pacific presence and we are pleased to extend our relationship with Foxtel to bring these high quality channels in HD to the market leading Foxtel platform.”

beIN Sports 1, 2 and 3 will replace the existing beIN Sports channel on Foxtel, which has been available as a premium standard definition buy-through channel since beIN acquired Setanta Sports Australia in 2014.

The addition of the beIN channels comes after Foxtel lost the pay-TV rights for the English Premier League to rival Optus for three seasons beginning 2016-17.
