Re: DAZN

I’m doubtful many companies like these will want to increase their outlay by joining what are basically linear TV platforms. The app is installed on a lot of TVs directly, so spending out on developing apps for VMs or SkyQ boxes will just push their costs up for little gain.

DAZN is available on the Sky Q boxes for their Italian and German services - both places where DAZN has significant football rights. I dare say the same app will be made available in the UK if they get significant rights here.

They are on certain cable providers where they have significant rights, e.g. Vodafone's cable service in Germany.

Re: DAZN

I thought DAZN was now available in the UK?

I went to the website and it says not available in this country?

No VPN on but I do have a different DNS, is that it?

Except it would be illegal for DAZN to allow their broadcasts to be available in the UK as they don't own the UK rights.

Something similar happened in the Arabian gulf with a different company muscling in illegally.

It's certainly available in the UK so the issue likely lies at your end

I think you are underestimating the advantage of having your streamer included on major platforms such as Sky, Virgin and BT, to be honest.

DAZN is not available on sky - not sure about the others.

From what I can glean, DAZN is currently £1.99 pm and has Boxing and MMA only in the UK - saying that if you are into either it seems cheap.

If that is the sort of monthly charge streamers are expecting to get, they may get a lot of subscribers, but little profit?

It's a well-tested approach. Come in cheap and grow the content and price.

In Italy, DAZN is on a satellie linear channel viewable on Sky. I'm not sure about the app. https://www.sportspromedia.com/news/...italia-channel

If DAZN acquired more rights then absolutely I could see it doing the same thing as it's done in Italy.

Re: DAZN

There are 2-3 non fighting documentaries in there - but 99% is Boxing/MMA.
