DAZN To Launch Its Global Platform In December Priced At £1.99
October 28, 2020
DAZN will expand to more than 200 countries and territories beginning Dec. 1.
On Saturday, Dec. 5, rising star Ryan Garcia meets 2012 Olympic gold medalist Luke Campbell for the interim WBC lightweight title. One week later, unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua defends his IBF, WBA (super) and WBO titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev from The O2 in London.
“From the UK to Mexico to Australia, we’ve seen an encouraging level of interest in our key events since first launching in 2016,” said DAZN EVP Joseph Markowski. “We’re looking forward to introducing the DAZN platform around the world this December with an exciting schedule of fights.”
Garcia vs. Campbell won’t be available on DAZN in Poland. Joshua vs. Pulev won’t be on DAZN in the UK or Ireland but will be available via a domestic broadcaster.
The initial monthly price point for new markets will be £1.99 or less.
At launch, DAZN’s global platform will feature not only back-to-back fight weekends, but also an ever-growing archive of classic fights, athlete features and a slate of original programming including 40 DAYS, Saturday Fight Live and ONE NIGHT. Additional sports and programming will be added in 2021.
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.
