Generally, games will start between 2pm and 11pm during the opening round of group stage fixtures (which takes place between Thursday June 14 and Tuesday 19). Matchdays two and three, held between Tuesday June 19 and Thursday 28, will see the vast majority of matches kick off at 4pm, 7pm and 10pm. In a tweet yesterday, du had said it was "temporarily unable to show beIN sport channels & packages” after viewers noticed the channels were missing. But as of this morning, the telecoms operator's website has been updated to explain that "beIN channels are back and the regular broadcasting has resumed" just in time for the World Cup.
Just weeks before FIFA World Cup, beIN Sports pulls TV channels from DU customers in the UAE.
