BeIN Sports HD now on 618 (Advanced). Currently in Free Preview.

Edit: Some occasional glitching occurring. Guide not completely correct, although this could be at the fault of the broadcaster rather than Shaw Direct, as they are currently covering a live event. The channel's website is correct.

Ahh, seems like beIN is a shoe-in to replace Speed Network, which is leaving on April 1:

However, beIN Sports will be a premium channel at $14.99 / Month. Interestingly enough, beIN Sports is not (as far as I can see) available on Shaw Cable at this time.
