Bein Sport Connect

My Bein Sport Connect channel asks me to activate the device every time I try to use it

Every time a code is shown on screen, and I need to go to Bein's site to activate the device

Is this poor application development or something is wrong with my Roku which can't stay active for any reason?

Same. Been having to go to the website and enter authentication code every single time for the past 3 weeks. Terrible.

I have the same problem. 

I also requested Beinsports to look at the problem. No solution so far.

It has been reported that this has helped for other channels with this problem, so maybe it will work for Bein Sport.

If the station's login procedure involves using an internet browser to log in, clearing the channel's information stored in the browser (cookies and browser history) before logging into station has been reported to prevent the problem.

If you don't know how to clear cookies and browser history, try using a different browser that would not have this information stored.

Re: Bein Sport Connect

This has nothing to do with web browser cache on phone or computer. The issue is with Bein app on Roku asking to authenticate every time we open the app to watch a game. Clearly the authentication is not sticking to the app itself hence continuously required user to endlessly authenticate on a daily basis.

Exactly right, I can access Bein Sports Connect via my computer without any authentication issue. The problem is the Roku Bein Sports Connect App; by the way, I have two Roku sticks and both have the same issue with Bein Sports Connect. Extremely annoying to be polite.

Same issue here with the beinsport connect app on Roku ultimate. Any solution yet?
