Since its introduction to the US market in September 2018, DAZN has continued to add to its content portfolio, which includes thousands of live and on-demand sporting and other events each year. In April, it premiered a live MLB show ChangeUp that features the best action from around the league each day.

The service also unveiled a new docu-series 40 DAYS, which pairs celebrity executive producers with boxers to document their preparation leading up to fight night. And on 9 Sept, a daily talk show from former NFL All-Pro punter Pat McAfee.he deal marks DAZN’s first distribution deal with a major US video and internet provider.

DAZN’s content will be directly accessible within the X1 and Flex sports hubs, and can be called up a specific programme with the Xfinity Voice Remote. DAZN offers an annual pass for $99.99, and also a monthly option at $19.99 for those customers more focused on flexibility.

“We’re thrilled to give our Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex customers access to DAZN’s live and on-demand programming starting this fall just in time for some of the most highly anticipated events in sports this year,” said Daniel Spinosa, VP, Entertainment Services, Comcast Cable. “With new content from partners like DAZN, coupled with our aggregated UI, X1 is the best way to experience live sports at home, and with Flex we can extend this great content, integrated experience and voice control to our internet-only customers directly on their TVs.”

“DAZN for Operators is our new partnership program, in which we collaborate with the world’s leading pay-TV operators, ISPs and mobile carriers to make the live sports experience even more accessible and better to watch for fans,” said Ben King, DAZN SVP, Global Distribution and Business Development. “We couldn’t think of a better inaugural partner than Comcast."
