DAZN is using Limelight to provide distribution of its coverage of Japanese professional football league the J League, the rights to which the streaming service acquired in a 10-year exclusive deal.
“No one wants an important play in a game interrupted by buffering,” said Robin Oakley, head of distribution technology at Perform Group, owner of DAZN. “Working with Limelight, we’re able to create and deliver a broadcast-like experience low on buffering, low on start-up times, and high on picture quality.”
“Sports fans are gaining unprecedented global access to thousands of events thanks to DAZN’s fast growing live and on-demand service. Our massive global private network provides the speed and capacity needed to ensure DAZN’s customers receive the best possible viewing experience on any connected device, anywhere in the world,” said Emma Whitmore, head of account management, EMEA at Limelight Networks.
