BeIN channels are experiencing some technical difficulties in Dubai this evening and people are wondering if there’s a connection with the major events that unfolded throughout the day. 

In case you missed it, early this morning the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt severed ties with Qatar closely followed by Libya, Yemen and the Maldives, all accusing the country of supporting terrorism.

Land, sea and air routes have been blocked (most flight suspensions begin tomorrow) and now residents of Dubai are wondering if the TV difficulties are part of a bigger problem.

BeIN Media Group is Qatari owned and headquartered in Doha

Earlier this week the Al Jazeera online platform was blocked in the UAE with no official confirmation why and there will be a question over whether the block this evening is linked.

And at least some are seeing the funny side

One Twitter user suggests the site is blocked

And people are aware of the Al Jazeera connection

People requested an explanation

A telephone conversation with BeIN revealed it’s a service issue and will be back in an hour

The operator denied any connection with the Qatar block however there has been no official response.
