@Mick..Respectfully I must disagree with your assessment as this to me is more a case of her having enough funds to blow a million on a court case just to try and save face ref her losing money. In addition if she were that bothered about her position and religious background then she would never have brought this case. I simply don't see the need to score points here ref religion and they say we say debates, it's purely money, end of story.

The problem is that this does not help those subscribing via ELife. The problem is the making of BeIn Sports and they have been abysmal about acknowledging fault, communication with their customers and confirming when their ban will be lifted. Perhaps ArabianBusiness could ask the Premier League what is going on if BeIN sports are not willing to say.
