I paused my account when that option became available. Wasn;t looking for a refund, just an extension. Checked it the other day and it actually had not actually been, even though I received confirmation at the time.
I think "paused" just means DAZN won't auto renew when your current subscription is finished (monthly or yearly).

First it was Canelo Álvarez, then it was Serie A, now it's the EPL

Is Dazn a sinking ship?

Other than NFL and UEFA Champions league, DAZN doesn't really have anything of significance to offer to Canadian sports fans.
DAZN isn't a sinking ship. They're trying to buy BT Sport for £600 million. There is some speculation about what they'll do in North America.

The Canelo situation was mostly a problem with Golden Boy Promotions/Oscar De La Hoya, not DAZN. Three of his four fights since the split have been on DAZN. They still have a good boxing line-up.

I wouldn't be shocked if DAZN pulled out of North America. They have nothing of note in the US and they just lost their second-biggest property in Canada. Having the NFL and UCL plus a bunch of fringe sports/competitions isn't going to keep them afloat.
They have decent boxing in the US. They're trying to get a deal with Canelo to fight Bivol and GGG.

Not that the Premier League is bigger in Canada than the NFL, but I think the EPL was a bigger property for them because it is exclusive (almost, there is one game on NBC most weeks). Most football fans get their NFL from CTV and TSN.
They really need a new single major property or to become a "home" for a certain sport (like motorsports) to stay alive here, imo.
With the exception of F1, particularly in Quebec, motorsports don't move the needle in Canada.

I don't know a lot about BT Sport. If the acquisition went through what type of additional programming would be available on DAZN Canada?
It didn't happen. BT Sport is becoming a joint venture with Warner Bros Discover's Eurosport. I was hoping DAZN would buy it and show BT Sport's Champions League and Premier League coverage (especially their halftime, pre and post match stuff) in Canada. Since DAZN lost the Premier League rights here, that couldn't happen after this season.

They also have made some sports docs like "The Boot Room Boys".

DAZN already increased prices in most of the world this year, but it's hard to stomach after they lost the Premier League. $5/month probably won't be a big deal for NFL fans, but this might be the last straw for many soccer fans.
