DAZN kicks off Brazilian service offering

Sports streaming disruptor DAZN has launched in Brazil.

This is the ninth market that the London-based DAZN has entered since launching in August 2016 in Austria, Germany, Japan, and Switzerland.

For a cost of R$37.90 (€8.50) per month, viewers in the Latin American nation are now able to live stream the service’s array of sports events. These include football competitions such as: CONMEBOL Sudamericana, Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, Serie A TIM, Serie BKT and Supercoppa Italiana, Ligue 1 Conforama, MLS and the English FA Cup. Other sports include: the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and British All-Star Championship basketball, Matchroom Boxing USA and Italy, and WTA tennis.

In preparation for its Brazilian launch, DAZN had been broadcasting exclusive football fixtures on social media. It has also been building a local team, with more than 30 Brazilian presenters, commentators, analysts, producers and influencers.

DAZN Executive Chairman, John Skipper said: “Going live in Brazil is the latest milestone in the DAZN journey, marking our ninth market across four continents. We’re excited to be at the forefront of this moment as streaming becomes the preferred way to consume the most valuable content in the world, premium live sports.”

DAZN is available on a range of devices, including TVs, streaming devices, PCs and games consoles. The service has no contract and comes with a one month free trial for new customers.

Bruno Rocha, EVP Brazil, DAZN said, “We are excited and committed to bringing the best possible content to our affordable and flexible service for Brazilian sport fans. The passion that Brazilians have for sport is second to none, so it makes perfect sense that we bring our sports streaming service to the country.

“Football features heavily in our offering, and it’s our aim to overlay all kinds of premium sports to create an unrivalled offering. Ultimately, our goal is simple; to bring fans the best viewing experience with our intuitive platform, a varied premium sports portfolio at an affordable price.”
