DAZN TV channel: the new sports Netflix
The DAZN TV channel does not exist because DAZN (pronounced “Da Zone”) is a sports streaming service.
The platform is well known abroad and especially in Germany where it broadcasts almost all football in particular.
DAZN has more than 8 million subscribers and has established itself in more than 200 countries including France. It is an actor still in evolution and which has a big ambition: that of becoming the Netflix of sport.
If the mission is already successful in some countries, it is harder to win in France where sports TV rights are distributed among many broadcasters.
The platform created by Perform Group in the United Kingdom in 2016 has the same advantages as platforms like Netflix, Disney+, or Amazon Prime, that is to say, a quick and simple configuration without the need for cable or satellite antenna.
DAZN’s initial offering is based on a pay-per-view model with DAZN boxing as its primary offering.
How much does DAZN France cost?
The price of the DAZN offer varies by country. For the moment, the sports catalog offered by DAZN France is reduced, which allows the platform to offer an extremely advantageous price. Indeed, DAZN in France costs €9.99 per month without commitment.
This rate is nevertheless subject to change as the DAZN France sports catalog expands.

Ambitions and opportunities for DAZN
DAZN aims to become an Omnisports platform, a kind of sports Netflix as its nickname suggests.
In France, the challenge is to manage to recover the coveted football TV rights. Unfortunately for the platform, we have seen that this is not an easy task as the plurality of broadcasters of these rights is important.
Internationally, however, it is something else. Indeed, the platform currently has a global reach that it is constantly seeking to expand.
According to the Financial Times, to continue to develop, DAZN is in negotiations with BT Sport, co-broadcaster of the Premier League in the United Kingdom, and would like to buy the company.
DAZN also seeks to develop new businesses and opportunities such as:
- The created of original documentaries as he did with the documentary on DAZN Boxing: ” 40 days “.
- Ticket sales.
The obstacles and difficulties encountered by DAZN
The development of DAZN in France has been considerably slowed down by the COVID-19 crisis. Indeed, DAZN’s boxing lineup (which is its main sales showcase) has been turned upside down during this time.
In fact, the subscription in France set in France at €9.99 per month can be seen as a means of attracting more audiences with a very low price, but it also testifies to the lack of content present on the platform in terms of a variety of sports.
In France, there is a major problem that fans regularly complain about: the increasing number of subscriptions to watch the sport due to too many broadcasters. This observation is both a huge opportunity for DAZN if it manages to consolidate these rights, and a huge problem given the difficulty of the task.
Take football for example. If you want to see all the matches of the biggest football competitions, you need to have: Amazon Prime Ligue 1, beIN SPORTS, RMC Sport, and even Canal+, the free Sports offer in France being insufficient. It is therefore easy to understand that buying back all the rights from all these broadcasters is not easy and can take time.
However, we can hope that DAZN will continue to develop its catalog in the future to become a real sports Netflix .
