DAZN goes live in 200 markets

Sports streamer DAZN has launched its boxing-focused ‘big bang’ global expansion, launching services in more than 200 countries and territories.

With services starting at the equivalent of £1.99 or less, sports fans can sign up to the service and watch a range of live world championship boxing and on-demand original programming.

As well as its fight schedule, DAZN’s global platform features an archive of classic fights, athlete features and a slate of original programming including 40 Days, Saturday Fight Live and One Night. DAZN said it was committed to adding more sports and sports content to the global service from 2021.

“We’re excited to launch our global platform with an action-packed opening month featuring boxing’s biggest stars and a suite of premium original programming,” said DAZN EVP Joseph Markowski.

DAZN announced the planned expansion of its presence to over 200 markets in March, but the launch was subsequently delayed due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The DAZN app will be available globally on most internet-connected devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs, and living room devices such as smart TVs, streaming sticks and game consoles.

Thie move marked a dramatic expansion of the service, which previously operated a mix of sports service in nine countries.
