DAZN Group has launched two new global FAST channels: DAZN Combat and DAZN Women’s Football, with Veronica Diquattro, CEO Global Markets, DAZN, declaring: “We are committed to increasing the global presence of these sports and the [FAST] channels will give more sports fans frictionless, anytime access to top-tier sports rights.” LG will be carrying the channels globally, excluding DAZN’s core territories), with markets including Norway, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, France and Australia.

Samsung TV Plus will also be distributing the DAZN Women’s Football Channel in Australia and New Zealand, where the channel launched on April 26. VIDAA will carry both channels in Australia, Brazil and Mexico.  Other partners will be brought on board following launch, DAZN stated.

Chris Jo, SVP of Platform Business at LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company, says: “”The user base of LG Channels in Europe has tripled in the last year, thanks to availability of a growing number of channels. With the addition of DAZN’s popular sports channels we expect more LG TV customers in Europe can enjoy their favourite game on the big screen.”

DAZN Combat covers boxing and MMA, including live events, highlights, archive fights and documentaries. The channel will show live boxing events, as well as re-runs from DAZN’s roster of boxing and combat properties, including Matchroom Boxing and Golden Boy.

DAZN Women’s Football offers elite competitions including the UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL) and Finetwork Liga F, plus archives, behind-the-scenes access and highlights and documentaries (like ‘EQUALS’, a six-part documentary series putting viewers one-on-one with some of the top stars in the women’s game).

DAZN recently launched DAZN RISE: a free, ad-supported 24/7 channel in Germany and Austria dedicated to women’s sport. That channel includes live broadcasts and highlights of the UWCL, the French and Spanish first leagues, Division 1 Féminine and Finetwork Liga F.
