Yes, that is correct. They chose BeIn for the $$$$$$$.
Good to get the 3 points. Performance was a bit uneven, but there was a clear foul and offsides on the Jamaican goal, so a bit unlucky to concede as well. Klinsmann's substitutions were flat baffling, especially subbing in Edgar Castillo to play left midfield in place of Fabian Johnson.
I would say if you don't get BeIn now, you'll be getting it soon. They are gobbling up non-PL TV rights and are likely the home of the MLS after their contract with MLS expires.
