DAZN New Zealand: Everything you need to know
International live sports streaming service DAZN is in more than 200 countries and is expanding content to the platform.
The way we consume international sport is undergoing a substantial change. While streaming has become an integral part of how we now enjoy our movies and television programming, professional sport is emerging as the next frontier in that field.
One of the major players in sports streaming is British company DAZN. Launched back in 2016, it promised to shake up the traditional pay TV model that has dominated sports coverage and broadcast rights for decades.
A planned launch into 200 countries earlier in 2020 was delayed due to the coronavirus. But the expansion took place on 1 December and DAZN New Zealand is now up and running.
What is DAZN?
DAZN, pronounced “Da Zone”, offers live and on-demand sports content online and through its app. Initially available in Austria, Germany and Switzerland, it is now in over 200 countries after a massive expansion in December 2020. This is when it launched in New Zealand.
What content does DAZN have in New Zealand?
DAZN’s sports content varies by geographical location. Boxing remains DAZN’s principal offering, thanks to it owning global broadcast rights to Golden Boy Promotions and Matchroom Boxing USA.
On 1 July 2021, DAZN announced it had also acquired the global rights to the UEFA Women’s Champions League for 4 years. In a major boost for the women’s game, DAZN will show matches on its platform and for free on its YouTube channel.
In December 2021, DAZN became the new global broadcaster for Fan Controlled Football season 2. Fan Controlled Football is exactly what it sounds like – it’s football (in this case gridiron) streamed live where fans call the plays.
How much will DAZN cost?
In New Zealand, it will cost you $14.99 a month to access some truly world class sport. That gives you access to its entire library of live and on-demand content.
Does DAZN offer a free trial?
In New Zealand, DAZN does not offer a free trial.
Potential customers do have an opportunity to freely browse the site before signing up, with no paywall in place.
How can I watch DAZN?
DAZN can be accessed on up to 2 devices at once. The full list of compatible devices is iOS, tvOS, Android mobile and Android TVs, PlayStation, Xbox, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, stick and tablet, plus selected smart TVs from LG, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung.
Will DAZN get other sports?
In countries where it has been live for some time, DAZN holds the rights to some impressive content. It has UEFA Champions League and Europa League rights plus the NBA in multiple countries. It also has live and exclusive EPL and NFL rights in Canada and has now added the Women’s Champions League globally as mentioned.
The company has big ambitions and it will be fascinating to see if it can continue to shake up some traditional sports broadcasters across the globe.
