DAZN details that it has developed a +30,000 live event platform, allowing multiple media owners to consolidate their sports acquisition and distribution requirements under one platform.

In its update, DAZN details that it has built its enhanced media distribution platform utilising cloud technologies, which will streamline the process of buying and selling media rights for multiple parties.

The company informs that BT Sport, NBC Sports, Fox Soccer, Fox Netherlands and ESPN are among the media operators which have already signed up to DAZN Connect service.

“We now have more sports content on our network than anyone else in the industry,” declared Gareth Rees, head of business development at DAZN.

“Combine this with our technological innovation and with customer satisfaction at the core of our service, DAZN Connect is well positioned to take some big steps in the coming months.

DAZN Connect is built in the cloud to deliver the lowest latency, highest quality and the most secure sports distribution service. With an innovative contribution service, clients can supply live sports back onto the DAZN network so local coverage can be made available globally, offering up further exposure and coverage for rights owners.”
