Yes, I was really thinking that DAZN is a sports streaming channel showing a range of different sports including football and so it is more appropriate to compare the price with Sky Sports rather than Netflix or Amazon.

Sport is always going to be more expensive, but personally, not being a sports person, I will be happy not to have to pay for sport as part of any of my packages when I finally ditch my pay tv channels. It would be interesting to know what proportion of my 'Full House' package goes towards BT Sport, which I never watch.

Not as much as you might think, Sky Sports is available for 9 months on Now TV for £21.22 per month including UK VAT (£195). The DAZN USA price will not include an equivalent sales tax.

Of course Sky Sports is the premier product in the market offering an unparalleled range of content. DAZN does not do this in the USA.

To be fair they've massively increased their coverage.
Current subscribers get the old price for another year or the yearly sub is $99.99.

Big headline but isn't bad if you do a year.

That article was written last year. The Disney/Fox deal closed last week.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The article I read on Disney + a few months ago stated that the new streaming service would have three strands to it - Disney productions including Marvel productions, Hulu and sport.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Some more information here on Apple+, which should be launching this autumn. And guess what - they are looking at bundling channels (streaming services) at a discount. Well, who'd have thought it?

https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/25/1...inals-channels

Pricing for the various Apple TV Channels hasn’t been disclosed. It’s been rumored that Apple will offer bundles of them at a discount, but the company didn’t delve into any of that today.

Depends who it's rumoured by - if it's Apple, I agree; if it's not, not so much...

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

The market will be saturated and far from lowering costs to the end user it’ll force prices up.
