Authenticated subscribers to beIN SPORT can access the network’s coverage on a streaming platform that started up on Friday.

The platform, beIN SPORT Play, streams network programming in high-definition and is available on any platform-connected PC, mobile device or smartphone. It is available to authenticated subscribers of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks, and during the coming months will be supplied to other video providers.

Subscribers will have full online access to both the English-language and Spanish-language channels and will be able to view “overflow” matches and events crowded off the television service.

“beIN SPORT Play offers sports fans all the excitement of our worldwide coverage of the best athletes and sports leagues,” said managing director of beIN SPORT Yousef Al Obaidly in a press release. “We are excited to deliver sports fans state-of-the-art broadband access to this exclusive action.”

CREW WILL TAKE TO STREETS. The Columbus Crew will host its inaugural 4v4 Street Soccer Festival at Crew Stadium July 6. The first-ever tournament -- held in the parking lot of Crew Stadium -- will be open to children and adults, ages 8 and older, and feature 14 different age divisions for both males and females. Each team is guaranteed to play three games (10-minute halves). Registration includes a t-shirt, a ticket to the July 7 Crew match against Portland, as well as access to the post-match concert with Irish rock band Flogging Molly.

UNION LICENSE PLATES FOR SALE. Philadelphia Union fans can purchase Pennsylvania specialty  license plates for $50 each with proceeds benefiting the Philadelphia Union Foundation. In the same appearance as a standard Pennsylvania plate with a backdrop of blue, yellow and white, the Philadelphia Union logo is located on the left side with the words “PHILADELPHIA UNION FOUNDATION” written across the yellow portion at the bottom. On the right side, “UF” is displayed to represent Union Foundation. Philadelphia Union license plates will soon be available in New Jersey and Delaware.
