BeIN SPORTS refiles FCC carriage complaint against Comcast

BeIN Media Group LLC's beIN SPORTS (US) has refiled its carriage complaint against cable giant Comcast Corp. with the Federal Communications Commission.

In March, the Qatar-based sports broadcaster sued Comcast for allegedly violating program carriage rules by offering a "discriminatory and patently unfair renewal" of their agreement. It claimed that the cable giant favored cable networks NBCSN (US) and UNIVERSO (US), which are part of content arm NBCUniversal Media LLC's portfolio.

The FCC Media Bureau eventually dismissed the complaint, saying it wanted a more definitive idea of what programming specifically would be featured on BeIN SPORTS' networks in the U.S. and Canada.

BeIN SPORTS said Dec. 14 that its refiled complaint contains additional evidence that would prove Comcast's discriminatory practices favoring NBC-affiliated networks.

In response, Comcast said it is fully compliant with the FCC rules, and that BeIN SPORTS is using the "recycled" complaint to try securing "non-market carriage terms," Multichannel News reported.
