LONDON: The DAZN OTT service, which offers live sports streaming, has launched in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

DAZN provides exclusive access to the Premier League, starting with this Saturday’s opener between Champions Leicester City and Hull City, as well as every match live from La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1, plus highlights of every match from Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2. There will be more than 8,000 live events offered each year, including NBA, NFL, Tennis, Motorsports, Boxing, Ice Hockey, Rugby, Darts and much more.

Launched by Perform Group, the service is available on connected devices, including Smart TVs, personal computers, tablets, smartphones and games consoles, for a monthly fee.

Simon Denyer, the chief executive of Perform Group, said: “At DAZN, we put fans first and in control. German sports fans can choose to watch the sport they love whenever and wherever they like, with no long-term fixed contract and no advertising, for just €9.99.

“By joining DAZN fans will enjoy an unparalleled streaming experience, with more live sport available than any service before. Incredible moments in sport happen every day, not just during the major events.

“We won’t make the broadcasting choices for you,” Denyer continued. “As a subscriber you’ll have the freedom to set your own sporting agenda. We’re delivering something very different.”
