Where the hell did DAZN come from?

They were founded in the UK, but they got massive in Canada after they started having NFL rights there. In the US they got big because of MMA and boxing and shit like that. They've grown pretty massively in the last few years.

I remember in the thread regarding the latest television deals stating that I could see BT Sport stepping away once the newest set of deals expiried due to the emergence of streaming services. I didn't anticipate that they would be open to a sale to a streaming service this quickly mind.

I was listening to Eddie Hearn discussing the advantages and potential of the DAZN streaming service/ business model on The Athletic Podcast after he made his matchroom fights exclusive to them. I thought the business model had a ceiling at the time and that ceiling was a lot lower than a BT sport buy out so fair play to them.

My contract is up in December so I'll possibly end up looking at other cost effective alternatives.

Interesting. Reckon a lot of BT subscriptions are based on their sport package so for them to totally consider getting rid of all of that is surprising. Maybe they don't have the pull any more because or Amazon edging their way in to the football calendar, and that's just the beginning and now maybe they can't compete.

I have the Dazn app and it’s worth it for the boxing content alone, but they have some decent on demand content on there too. I’ve watched several documentaries from R9 to Mourinho. They will set the standard going forward with the people they have on there already and their ideas and ambition going forward.
 

For the boxing shows, the lineup they have is the best in the world. The coup of Mike Costello was a big one.  
 

It was £1.99 a month for a while but has just gone up to £7.99 and still worth it.

 

Very surprised that BT want out of sports thoufh?!

Interesting, only in the fact a few days ago DAZN chairman Kevin Mayer had been asked if the talk about a deal were still live, five months after BT said it was considering selling a stake in the unit, he said: "It's really quiet."

Yet now some say by the end the month a change of control?

I hope DAZN get it but it will be interesting to see where Frank Warren goes if they do

His contract with BT will still stand but now with Dazn, surely!? 

Be interesting to see the 2 British Promoters together, i hope it happens and they build their shite relationship.
