The channel will launch on September 20, and give access to DAZN’s package of Serie A rights, which comprises three weekly matches from Italian soccer’s top-flight. The channel will also show two Serie B matches from each round, a selection of live international football games and other sports.
Italian viewers can buy access to the new channel as an add-on to their Sky subscription.
“DAZN continues to invest in order to grow the platform and expand the offer of streaming content,” said Veronica Diquattro, DAZN’s EVP for Southern Europe.
“At the same time, this agreement with Sky will allow an increasingnumber of fans, including those who live in Italian areas not yet perfectly served by an adequate technological infrastructure, to have access, through the channel, to a
selection of the main events.”
