May 11, 2016
The 2016 IAAF Diamond League season wraps up its Asian portion on Saturday in Shanghai, China. Television and streaming information for the meet is listed below. You can also watch the pre-meet press conference live online on Friday (late Thursday night) at 2:00 a.m. ET.
How to watch:
In USA: Unfortunately, since this meet goes up against European soccer it will only be streamed live on the internet in the US (and not be on TV live). (We believe the rest of the non USA Diamond League meets in 2016 are on beIN Sports TV) . It will air live on beIn Sports Connect from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. ET on Saturday. You can stream it live through beIN Sports Connect (if you have a a cable susbscription with BeInSports).
All of the cable providers in the US allow subscribers of beIN Sports access to beIN Sports Connect except for Xfinity/Comcast. It’s worth noting that beIN Sports Connect is not part of the Slingtv package. We have discovered you can purchase beIN Sports Connect over the Internet for $19.99. It’s supposed to be for Canadians only but we went toand put in Toronto as our hometown and used by US billing address and we now are subscribers for $19.99 a month. It doesn’t stream on chrome though. You need firefox or explorer.
In Europe, it’s on live on Eurosport.
Europe: It was announced that Eurosport would carry the Diamond League live in 2016 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).
