DOHA: Al-Jazeera says it will launch two sports channels in the United States in August.

The Qatar-based broadcaster says it plans to show league football from Spain, France and Italy as well as the Copa America and South American qualifying matches for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The network will be called beIN Sports USA.

BeIN Sports managing director Youssef Mohammad al-Obaidly says the channels will be "a new way of watching sports, a better way."

He says the network is in "the last stages of negotiation with different providers, having secured two major deals so far that will bring the channel to subscribers' homes on August 1."
