WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When YipTV considered the type of television content it wanted to offer its huge target market of people born outside the United States, it quickly identified beIN SPORTS as a necessary addition to its live sports programming.

YipTV sees beIN SPORTS – with its multi-lingual broadcasts of exciting live-action soccer, boxing, rugby, tennis, cycling, motor sports and more – as a perfect fit for its potential audience of more than 40 million people who have immigrated to the U.S. The network, which has global reach and content, has channels in the Americas, Europe and Asia.  Given the diversity of viewers in the U.S., YipTV offers beIN SPORTS in both English and Spanish.

For example, YipTV subscribers will be able to watch all of the soccer action that beIN Sports airs in the much-anticipated Copa America 2015 matches, which will be played in nine stadiums in eight cities throughout Chile between June 11 and the final match in Santiago on July 4.

"With the broad range of sports it airs, beIN SPORTS is being embraced rapidly all around the world," said YipTV CEO and Co-founder Michael Tribolet.  "That's why it was a natural first choice for the lineup of live programming choices that we're building at YipTV."
