Orange has reached agreement with DAZN to distribute its service in Spain as part of its Orange TV offer.
Last December, DAZN acquired the domestic broadcasting rights to 175 LaLiga matches for the next five seasons. It also has Spanish rights to Premier League, UWCL, Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, FA Cup, Copa Italia and MLS.
From August a new linear channel will be introduced for Orange customers, as well as through the DAZN app, which will be available on set-top boxes, as well as on Smart TVs and mobiles.
Nacho García-Legaz, General Manager of Orange TV said: “For Orange it is very important to continue advancing in its strategy to make Orange TV the largest aggregator of audiovisual content in the Spanish market. Football is a high-value content and a loyalty factor for our customers.”
Bosco Aranguren, General Manager of DAZN Spain added: “We are very pleased to announce this new agreement with Orange, which is an important step in DAZN’s growth strategy in Spain. This alliance, which will further boost the consumption of sports via streaming, reinforces our commitment to bring top-level sports competitions to the largest number of fans in an easy, flexible and innovative way.”
Details including pricing will be announced in the next few weeks.
