Sky & DAZN to share Anthony Joshua v Francis Ngannou

Sky Sports and DAZN will both air Anthony Joshua’s bout with Francis Ngannou on their pay-per-view services.

DAZN will continue to show the fight worldwide, but Sky Sports Box Office will also air it in the UK.

DAZN seem to be literally giving up the fight in the UK. In more ways than one.

So much for streaming being the dominant player when it comes to competing for Sports TV rights.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

So many people have found it a nightmare subscribing to and contacting DAZN (at a responable cost) that I suspect they realise they will be better letter Sky show it too and get income that way.

Given that W and Drama are both free channels, they are hardly the best at showing the value of a pay TV package costing £49 per month.

Channels like Alibi, Discovery, National Geographic or Crime + Investigation would all be much better choices.
Yes, they don’t even promote their own Virgin Ultra HD channel.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

i hope Dazn p*ss off to be honest. too many streamers coming into the market taking some random sports package and then going "lol ten quid a month please!"

Well they have been gradually trying to push people over to 360 and Stream for a while now, using various apps as an incentive, i.e. Disney+, Paramount+, Apple TV+ etc.

Re: Virgin TV (2024)

I'm surprised that they haven't just told the customer base that the old boxes will be changed out for TV360's over a short period.

They would rather have the customers themselves making this decision.
