PL might still be on TV since there is no confirmation from any of the major networks including DAZN. Something like Serie A which is between DAZN and TLN.
PL is adding more 3:00 PM games on Saturdays starting next season for growing the game in North and South America. I think PL is probably the most popular league for soccer in Canada and not being on TV is a huge step down. At the same time, Amazon Prime bought some of the PL games in UK, so it's not really a surprise to have the games on digital platform media (if they pay more) for countries where the league is not that popular.
Craig Forrest who is an icon in Canadian soccer, made our Saturday mornings exciting for many years. He is no longer with Sportsnet along with some journalist and TV host James Sharman. Loved the sportsnet crew for PL coverage.
DAZN announced yesterday about sub-licensing German Football (Bundesliga) from EuroSport in Germany & Austria. DAZN will be streaming live EuroSports 1 and 2 in Germany, Austria, Italy and Spain. I wonder if same deal can happen with Sportnet World?
Yes, these are the shows that Sportsnet world used to have. I am hoping for PL international coverage before the game (same guys as the PL preview show). Also, Fan zone was fun to watch, maybe DAZN will add it, just one more sleep to find out.
Yes, "Match Day Live" is what I used to watch on Sportsnet World. So, I think DAZN will have half time shows. They should have announce these programmings since many fans were asking around on Twitter.
@waterug You can always make your suggestion directly to DAZN or DAZN help. @DonR I use chromecast but might get Fire Stick too because of what u mentioned about being easier to navigate with fire stick remote rather than keep going to my phone or tablet for changing games on TV. Right?
Overall, the quality of two PL games I watched were amazing and absolutely no buffering. Loved the pre/half and post game shows except DAZN should add PL Today on their daily programming.
LA Liga and Ligue 1: DAZN is not showing any games on their schedule or on-demand as of yet but games are available via BEIN Sport live feed.
@ ottvee Yes, PL today and Fanzone are available in Features section of Premier League. I think they are only available until next day when DAZN adds the new PL today and fanzone.
I also think these shows are only available on-demand sometimes in the afternoon and not being shown live.
DAZN has a reporter for Canadian PL viewers and has some interesting programs which is unique. According to Wikipedia, Canada is the only English language country where DAZN has PL rights.
But BEIN sports online for cord cutters is just expensive for 2 leagues with no play back. I saw many people switched to DAZN from BEIN in GTA because of Serie A even when BEIN had the rights. I am not sure how popular La Liga is in Canada but can't imagine being bigger than PL or Serie A.
