Aljazeera sports which was transmitting on NileSat satellite asked its viewers to switch to ArabSat.

However, it seems that Aljazeera has blamed NileSat of intentionally doing the blockade  as Osama AL Shaikh Egypt’s  head of Radio and TV union accused Aljazreera of intentionally stopping the match transmission, as stated on Aljazeera news story in Arabic.
