Sports streaming giant DAZN is launching 10 new channels, in partnership with tech firm Amagi, to further scale up its free sports offer.

Among the channels are Matchroom Boxing, Boxing TV, PDC Darts, Motorvision TV, Lacrosse TV, Padel TIME TV, SportStak, Moto America TV, Billiard TV, and ACL Cornhole TV.  With programming  across these channels ranging from padel and tennis to motorsports and combat sports.

Leveraging DAZN’s worldwide reach and market-leading technology, these channels will unlock the best sports action in new ways. We are proud that more sports’ organisations are recognising DAZN as the partner of choice as they look to engage with a larger audience – we are the only partner which can offer this global footprint.
