The beIN SPORTS CONNECT player incorporates adaptive streaming when available, so will always provide you with the best quality video available on your Internet connection. This is also aimed to ensure that content doesn't buffer when your Internet connection drops in speed (it is not a constant value at all times). In addition the live player on beIN SPORTS CONNECT also allows you to mannually select your speed. Sometimes this allows you to achieve a slightly better quality but may result in some buffering.
Watching beIN SPORTS CONNECT is like watching any other streaming service. If you already watch other Internet streaming services such as Netflix or YouTube then you shouldn't notice much difference in your bandwith usage. If however, you are new to streaming content, we recommend you monitor your usage and consider increasing your download limit with your ISP.

We recommended a broad band internet connection of at least 1.0 mbps to assure smooth playback. You can check connection speed at Speedtest If your connection is slower than 1 Mbps you may want to contact your internet service provider about a faster connection. If your connection is fast enough, and you’re still having problems please try the following:
  • If you’re on a WIFI connection, try moving closer to WIFI router for a stronger signal, or if possible use a wired connection
  • If you’re running other bandwidth intensive programs, such as, Outlook, Spotify, BitTorrent, Vuze, Internet phone service (Skype, Vonage, etc.), downloads, etc. try pausing, or closing them.
  • If you’re sharing an internet connection check if other people are using bandwidth intensive programs
  • If your video stalls only in full-screen mode, try lowering your desktop resolution.
  • Try turning off any CPU-intensive programs you're running, or rebooting your computer.
  • Make sure your Flash drivers are up to date. Click here to download to install the latest version.
  • Perform a traceroute. If you receive an output with 13 or more hops, the problem is most likely related to how your Internet Service Provider is routing your computer's requests to the website. Unfortunately, we are unable to fix this problem - you can try contacting your Internet Service Provider to request help.
