How to watch the meet:
In USA: This meet and the entire Diamond League in 2016 will be on beIN Sports. Day 1 will air live on beIn Sports from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday*; Day 2 will air live on beIN Sports from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET on Saturday. You can also stream it live through beIN Sports Connect. In the UK, coverage starts on BBC Red Button at 19:00 BST on Friday and then it moves to BBC2 at 20:00 BST. On Saturday, it’s on BBC1 starting at 13:15 BST. There also is radio coverage and post-race coverage as explained here.
*Right now, Day 1 is only listed as being shown on beIN Sports ñ — the Spanish language version of beIN Sports — but we believe it will also be shown on the actual beIN Sports.
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 via one of two options:
- Option #1 $10 a month/With a 7-Day Free Trial – Sling International Sports Package You get beIN Sports (great international soccer including La Liga, and rugby), One World Sports (Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Chelsea channels) and Willow Cricket. 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 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).
