Turn of events in the World Cup broadcasting situation on Télé Liban

After it was reported earlier that Qatar promised Lebanon that the right to broadcast the world cup would be given to the Lebanese channel Télé Liban, other reports have now emerged and are not pleasant to hear.

It seems that after all, the Lebanese people will not be enjoying a free to watch 2014 FIFA World Cup on TL, as the Ministry of Youth and Sports stated that BeIn did not agree to grant Télé Liban the right to broadcast.

Such news are harsh to hear, especially that not everyone can afford the costs of watching the world cup, and it would be cruel to deny those people from watching the world’s greatest football competition, that happens only once every 4 years.
