DAZN Review: Price, features and content compared

Is this the best way for armchair sportsfolk to get their fix?

Last updated:


Let’s get your most burning question out of the way first: yes, “DAZN” stands for Da Zone. As in: in the zone. It’s nothing but sport. Wall-to-wall kicking, passing, smashing balls of various shapes and sizes into and/or across goal areas. Sometimes after a bit of good old-fashioned tackling and/or shin-kicking has taken place. You know, the good stuff.

How much does DAZN cost?

DAZN is about as straightforward as it gets. No tiers of subscription. No special deals or hidden charges. Just $20 monthly or $150 annually to get access to the best of sports streaming.

What content does DAZN offer?


If you’ve got broad tastes when it comes to your sport, DAZN is more or less your Graceland now. Athletics aficionados can get into Pac-12 Olympic Tournaments and Commonwealth Games when they roll around. Baseball offerings include a whopping 200+ MLB games. If you’re into hoops you can soak in events from Canadian International, FIBA tournaments and Pac-12. Fight fans can even lace up for Matchroom Boxing, World Boxing Super Series and Golden Boy Boxing.

Cricket folk will have their wicketkeeper gloves full with home internationals from England, West Indies, Pakistan and Sri Lanka (plus there’s the Caribbean Premier League T20 and the Royal London One-Day Cup). Meanwhile, cyclists can get their lycra on for Tour of Basque Country and UCI Europe Tour. Lastly, we have more sedate sports like Professional Competition and World Championships Darts existing alongside extreme sports like the Red Bull Air Race.

DAZN is also a mecca of soccer (football to some). Expect to get La Liga, Copa del Rey, Ligue 1, Serie A, MLS, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, AFC Champions League, EFL League One, EFL League Two, the Carabao Cup and J League. Not to mention the FIFA Club World Cup and FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

This service also lets subscribers tackle tons of Rugby. DAZN is the home of Six Nations, Heineken Champions Cup, Guinness Pro14, European Champions Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup. If those hits aren’t hard enough, fans of straight-up violence can indulge in Bellator MMA or Combate Americas.

Rounding things out, we have content dedicated to a number of miscellaneous sporting pursuits. 30 PGA Tour events can be watched on DAZN, along with every game of the NFL (plus the Super Bowl, Pac-12 and RedZone). You can also dip into KHL Ice Hockey, MotoGP, World Snooker and a bunch of tennis action (ATP, WTA and Tie-Break Tens).

What sports does DAZN show?

The best way to decide if DAZN is for you is to browse the list of sports available on the service.
