DAZN Canada

New sport channel called DAZN is launching in Canada which is similar to Netflix but only for sports:

""""Following the news announced today, DAZN will be the only place Canadians can access NFL Game Pass, which includes every live NFL game of the 2017 season – pre-season, regular season, the playoffs and the Super Bowl. As the new home of NFL Game Pass, which includes all Sunday games previously offered in NFL Sunday Ticket, and NFL RedZone, DAZN will have both live and on-demand NFL coverage with no blackouts meaning fans will never have to miss another epic touchdown, field goal or interception.

DAZN will also provide access to other sports from top leagues and competitions around the world. Monthly and annual packages will be available. Sports fans will be able to subscribe for $20 CAD a month or annually for the limited introductory price of $150 CAD. In addition, all subscribers will get 30 days free.""""""

Wonder if Spotsnet World Now closed because they're partnering with them?

Their full programming online will be announced soon.

@rush9999 it looks like DAZN doesn't carry European hockey in any of the other countries according to Wikipedia. DAZN is very vague in the press release and Twitter responses about which other sports they will carry in Canada.

Here are the links I posted in the Sportsnet World NOW thread:

So what happens to rural NFL RedZone subscribers who can't stream because they have speed or data cap issues? We're just SOL I guess?

It looks like DAZN will also be hiring a French Canadian production team to cover at least "European football and NFL matches."

I wonder how Bell and Rogers are going to respond to DAZN's launching in Canada. Since they are OTT, no license is required.

The Canadian Press article I read yesterday said commercial customers would still get Sunday Ticket.

How would they respond exactly? They lost the rights fairly and squarely to DAZN, as sold to them by the NFL.

SOL – that is part of living in the boondocks. You can't expect to have the same technology as an urban centre. Blame the government and telcos for that.

I don't get it, Bell just signed a new contract for NFL:

"""
Under the new multi-year deal, NFL regular-season games will air across Bell channels on Thursday, Sunday and Monday.
"""""

So does this mean DAZN can but digital rights for any other leagues no matter who owns the rights for Television? Like Premier league, NBA, Bundesliga, MLB and .... !!!!

Don't forget the cable ISPs. The blame is squarely on the telco and cable companies. The CRTC set up a fund that provided money for incumbent ISPs for providing high speed internet for rural Canadians. The companies took the money and used it to build urban infrastructure and abandoned the agreement before it was rolled out to rural areas. Some of the money was eventually given back but it illustrates how it's the big ISPs that are to blame. I don't deny that the government could do more but it takes money, and lots of it, to build internet infrastructure of any type. The problem is that nobody wants to pay, not even the people who complain about lack of service. The issue of high issue of speed internet for rural customers needs to be addressed so that companies like DAZN can compete in Canada.

Digital rights and linear TV rights don't have to be sold in the same package if the NFL wants to split them. That's likely what happened.

As for rural users... they don't want to pay the true cost of supplying the service in sparsely populated areas. That means it'll only happen when the government gets urban users to subsidize them.

It's no longer about subsidies. ISPs just don't want to serve rural areas because of the lower ROI. They also don't want competition. So no Netflix, DAZN or anything else for rural customers until the current business environment changes.

Rogers has already removed NFLST from the SSP on their website. This was posted on the Rogers Community Forum by a rogers employee

Quote:
As a fellow Football fan, I’ve got to say I’m as disappointed as you are after hearing that we will no longer be able to offer NFL Sunday Ticket.

The NFL sold all digital rights worldwide (excluding Europe & US) to an online streaming service called DAZN. As part of the new agreement, NFL Sunday Ticket will no longer be available to cable subscribers in Canada starting this season (this includes Bell, Shaw etc.).

Regrettably, this was not our decision. Rogers Super Sports Pak customers will still have access to up to 60% of all NFL football games including all the best match-ups.
Solved: Is NFL Sunday Ticket no longer part of Super Sport... - Rogers Community

I think it is unbelievable that all of the BDUs lost access to NFLST. Now I plan to cancel my SSP subscription + it is unlikely I will subscribe to DAZN because (1) only 2 simultaneous logins (I literally would have 10 TVs setup on some Sundays so that I could watch every game) and (2) I am presuming there will be internet lag on the stream will be behind the TV feed.

So yes I may go to the bar once or twice to catch a game now when I wouldn't have before, but I foresee me watching less football than in past years because of this.

They've removed the Sunday Ticket but they haven't reduced the price of the SSP, go figure. I think this is the way all sports is going, and it likely won't stop with the NFL. They plan on offering the service for between $11 and $15/month with no contract. Similar to Netflix.
