CAIRO/DOHA (Reuters) - BeIN Sports, a Qatar-based broadcaster that holds exclusive television rights to top sporting events such as Premier League football in the Middle East, said it had cut its service to Egypt on Tuesday amid a contract dispute with its service provider.

The news is likely to jolt Egypt, which stands to lose access to a deep pool of content held by beIN that also includes LaLiga, the Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Serie A as well as major international club and country competitions.
