Called DAZN FAST, the channel is the sports streamer’s first free channel. Designed to complement the company’s subscription offering, its line up includes documentaries, highlights, and reruns of live matches from top leagues such as LaLiga and Serie A. DAZN Originals such as The Phenomenon will also be shown on DAZN FAST, as well as shows such as Decoded, Inside Football and Unfiltered.

The FAST channel is part of a wider partnership between the two companies which will also see DAZN’s subscription services integrated into a broad-based entertainment package. Called Perfect Plus with DAZN, this package will be marketed at €39.99 per month and include around 200 HD TV channels and 30,000 hours of VOD content alongside the live sports events scheduled on DAZN.

Alice Mascia, CEO of DAZN in the DACH region, said: “With the joint package and the integration of the linear DAZN TV and FAST channels into the waipu.tv offer, we are once again making it easier for sports fans to enjoy our content. The partnership is a further step towards making DAZN available to a broad, sports-loving target group.”

Markus Härtenstein, CEO of Exaring AG, operator of waipu.tv added: “This co-operation brings us closer to the goal of becoming the German TV super aggregator.”
