Streaming Giant DAZN On Sky Linear Channel 429 From March 23
From Thursday, March 23 DAZN will make a highly requested move and be available as a linear channel on Sky TV. ‘DAZN HD 1’ will be a 24/7 channel available on Sky channel 429, a subscription allows you access to the linear channel on Sky as well as the existing app.
The sport streaming giant is the home of Anthony Joshua, Canelo Alvarez, Ryan Garcia, the Women’s champion league, PFL, and other sports including a reported recent acquisition of IPL rights for the next five years.
There are also plans for the channel to be available on Sky Q via the Amazon Prime platform after a deal between DAZN and Prime earlier this year.
Anthony Joshua’s fight with Jermaine Franklin will be the first major DAZN event to be available on the Sky platform, it was evidently important for a major TV star like Joshua to be as accessible as possible with UK viewers used to watching the British star on pay-per-view and now can do so on DAZN HD 1.
Shay Segev, Group CEO, “Getting DAZN widely distributed is a priority for us as it delivers our great and growing array of content to more and more fans,”
“We have ambitious, long-term and strategic plans for the UK market. The more people get to know DAZN and what we offer, not just in terms of rights but the full range of digital, interactive and sports entertainment we are developing, the better.
“This launch is great news for sports fans. DAZN 1 HD will optimise exposure for the upcoming Anthony Joshua fight, ensuring it is his most hotly anticipated and accessible bout in over a decade.”
