OTT streaming service DAZN officially launched in Brazil on Thursday, making it the broadcaster’s ninth market.
DAZN had been broadcasting exclusive football matches on social media in the run-up to launch and now offers full access to its sports subscription platform.
DAZN Brazil has a football-heavy line-up at launch, including the domestic Campeonato Brasileiro Série C and continental competition the Copa Sudamericana. Other football content includes Italy’s Serie A, Serie B and Supercoppa Italiana; the English FA Cup; France’s Ligue 1, Ligue 2 and Coupe de France; Major League Soccer; Japan’s J-League and the Africa Cup of Nations.
Other sports offerings include women’s tennis from the WTA; basketball’s EuroLeague; Matchroom Boxing USA and Italy; US motor-racing series IndyCar; Professional Fighters League; and Glory Kickboxing.
Bruno Rocha, who was appointed DAZN’s executive vice-president for Brazil last month, said: “Football features heavily in our offering, and it’s our aim to overlay all kinds of premium sports to create an unrivalled offering. Ultimately, our goal is simple; to bring fans the best viewing experience with our intuitive platform, a varied premium sports portfolio at an affordable price.”
DAZN launched in Spain earlier this year; its other markets are Japan, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Canada, Italy and the United States.
