Television information for the 2015 Shanghai IAAF Diamond League Track and Field Athletics Meeting is listed below.
How to watch:
In USA: This meet and we believe the entire Diamond League in 2015 will be on beIN Sports. It airs live on Sunday from 7:00 a.m. ET to 9:00 a.m. ET (the beIN Sports schedule says that it airs from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. but since the running events go from 7 to 9, we’d suggest tuning in at 7/setting your DVR for then if you want to watch the meet).
UPDATE. IT APPEARST EH BEINSPORTS BROADCAST WILL BE TAPE DELAYED BY 1 HOUR.
In addition to the Diamond League, beIn Sports also features great international soccer, including La Liga, and rugby. If you don’t subscribe to beIn Sports through your cable provider, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered below (if you already get it through your cable provider, you can stream it here via beIN Sports Connect). You can get it through Sling TV (many of you already have it as if it’s on the same package as Universal Sports) via one of two options:
- Option #1 $10 a month/With a 30-Day Free Trial – Sling International Sports Package You get BeIn Sports (great international soccer including La Liga, and rugby), Universal Sports, One World Sports (Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Chelsea channels), Willow Cricket and International News. Click here to try option #1.
- Option #2 $25 a month/With 7-Day Free Trial – Full Sling Service with $5 Sports Extra Package With this option you’ll get the full $20 Sling Service (ESPN, TNT, TBS, AMC, Adult Swim, Disney Channel, Food Network, HGTV, Cartoon Network, and others) and add the $5 Sports Extra Package to get Universal Sports, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, the SEC Network, & beIN Sports). If you get this you can cut the cord for $25 a month. If you want to add other channels you can and you can add HBO for $15 a month. Click here to try option #2 (and make sure you select the $5 Sports Extra Package to get beIn Sports)
- Disclosure: LRC does get a commission if you signup for Sling above, but it is a tremendous service we subscribe to ourselves and watch via phone and Roku. The new Sling interface is top notch. The DVR functionality is amazing (although we understand the DVR does not work for ESPN and a few others, as we only have option #1 above).
Europe: Last week, it was announced that Eurosport would carry the Diamond League live in 2015 except for the meets held in Britain. BBC will have access to highlights for a highlight show. If you have a European IP address, you can watch Eurosport live online here for £3.99/month (yearly subscription) or £5.99/month (one month at time).
