I have to disagree that DAZN days are numbered. Before Serie A and PL, Fubo had nothing, just a cheaper way to watch BEIN and Onesoccer. Sportsnet world has Bundesliga and FA cup, Eurosports world has nothing but both channels are still running.

Number of subscribers for sure will decrease since PL is going elsewhere.

I was hoping you'd write:
PLAYOFFS?! Don’t talk about—playoffs? You kidding me? I'm a Dolphins fan. Playoffs!?!
Yeah......no comment. Recent history hasn't been kind. I miss the Marino years

That makes the decision to cancel DAZN a bit harder. They really need a top 5 league to have something to watch every week but they're all taken. I wonder if Bundesliga would be available for them to get.

I totally agree, they need to add a league that has weekend games such as Serie A or Bundesliga. I will probably keep it as the Champions league keeps getting better and better. As long as they keep adding rights, it mean DAZN is here to stay.

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 has picked up rights to the new LIV Golf tournaments. Kinda strange considering it is available for free on YouTube.
I know quite a few golf fans and maybe we aren't representative of the overall feeling towards LIV but many of us are not planning on watching our supporting these tournaments. The politics of the source of funding is pretty unpalatable IMO.

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.

Yea it's not worth it for just Champions League. CBS had knockout round games anyway with better production so I watched those there. Most likely picking up the Fubotv deal instead and Apple tv MLS package next year.

The email was pretty ridiculous stretching the free stream rights(FCF, Big3, RedbullTV, etc) as having some part of their price increase when they most likely got those very cheap or free.
