Spain’s fifth largest operator Avatel has entered into a partnership with the global streaming platform DAZN.
The agreement between the two parties will will allow access to DAZN in the population centres where Avatel has greater penetration, thus enabling football fans from small and medium-sized towns to watch LaLiga (five exclusive LaLiga Santander matches per day for 35 days and extensive summaries of all the matches of both LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank), as well as the rest of the international competitions offered by the platform, such as the Premier League, the UEFA Women’s Champions League, the Copa Libertadores, the Copa Sudamericana, the FA Cup, the Carabao Cup or the MLS.
Viewers will also be able to watch the MotoGP and F1 world championships, as well as the best continental basketball with the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and the 7Days EuroCup, Matchroom boxing evenings, Eurosport channels and a large number of documentaries and productions.
Commenting on the development, Bosco Aranguren, general director, DAZN Spain, said: “DAZN’s mission is to make sport accessible to the greatest number of fans in an easy, flexible and innovative way. Together with our partner Avatel, we will promote the consumption of sports via streaming in the rural segment, which is an important step in DAZN’s growth strategy in Spain to become the preferred destination for all sports lovers”.
Hugo Campón, director of Avatel Televisión, added: “This agreement allows us to make a qualitative leap in our television offer, to consolidate ourselves as the leading operator in the small and medium-sized population segment. In this way, we reinforce our commitment to customers by bringing the main sports competitions closer to their homes through our own television platform, CLICtv, available to our extensive network of operators. In this way, we advance in the objective of expanding the content offer and adapting to the interests most demanded by users”.
Broadband TV News notes that DAZN is already distributed in Spain by MásMóvil, Orange and Telefónica.
