Orange and sports streaming service DAZN have reached an agreement which will see the latter’s sports content distributed within the Orange TV offering in Spain. Orange TV subscribers will be able to access the DAZN LaLiga package, which includes 175 matches (over the next five seasons) from Spain’s top football league.
Additionally, customers can watch matches from other major international football leagues, such as the Premier League, UWCL, Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, FA Cup, Copa Italia and MLS. The multi-sport offering also includes MotoGP, Moto2, and Moto3, F1, and Turkish Airlines EuroLeague (a European basketball league), as well as a range of original programming with documentaries and other special formats.
From August, Orange TV subscribers can access sports content provided by DAZN through a specific linear channel available on Orange TV set-top-boxes (STBs), as well as through the DAZN app (which is integrated into Orange’s platform). The companies say the quality of the Orange TV platform “both in terms of image and sound, as well as usability” will provide customers watching live sporting events through the service’s STB with a stable viewing experience without delays.
Nacho García-Legaz, General Manager of Orange TV, said: “For Orange it is very important to continue advancing its strategy to make Orange TV the largest aggregator of audiovisual content in the Spanish market. Football is high-value content and a loyalty factor for our customers. Therefore, we are very proud to have reached this alliance with DAZN, which will allow us to continue to be one of the few operators in Spain that offers not only the best cinema and series entertainment, but also the best football, and now, in addition, other content so valued by customers, such as Formula 1, Moto GP or EuroLeague basketball”.
Bosco Aranguren, General Manager of DAZN Spain, commented: “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.”
Further details, including pricing, will be revealed in the coming weeks.
