The first of two Diamond League finals will be held on Thursday in Switzerland at the annual Weltklasse Zürich meeting, where 16 Diamond League champions will be crowned. Full details on how to watch below.
How to watch:
In USA: This meet and the entire Diamond League in 2016 will be on beIN Sports. It will air live on beIn Sports from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET on Thursday (we assume it will be on TV but this one might be online only as it is going up against the European soccer season; the horrible beIN Sports website currently lists soccer to be shown in that window, but they’ve shown all the DL meets live except for the Pre Classic this year). You can also stream it live through beIN Sports Connect.
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 three options:
- #1 Recomendation: Stream BeInSports TV and now for the first time also get access to beIN Sports Connect though FuboTV and online streaming service available on your phone, computer, or Roku device for $9.99 a month – click here to get a free 24 hour trial. FuboTV is a streaming service for international soccer, cycling, and the track and field (Diamond League and some other meets like this one) and now for the first time they not only let you stream the BeInSports TV channel but you can also use your Fubo login to authenticate and get access to all the BeInSports streams (including the events that are only live online like the Shanghai Diamond League meet was).
BeinSport is also available via the Sling TV Sports package (but it does not give you access to online only events which is why we now recommend Fubo).
- Option #2 $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 #3 $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).
