DAZN has launched a FAST channel – DAZN FAST+ – with Samsung TV Plus in Germany. The channel offers live matches from some of the top European football leagues, including the Spanish La Liga, Italian Serie A and French Ligue 1, as well as exclusive DAZN Original documentaries. DAZN+ will also offer exclusively produced shows for the UEFA Champions League, in addition to highlights and features.
The first two live football broadcasts on the channel were Paris Saint Germain vs Strasbourg which took place on December 28th, and Valladolid vs Real Madrid which took place on December 30th.
This is DAZN’s second FAST channel in Germany. Last month, the sports streamer launched its first FAST channel with German IPTV platform waipu.tv
Richard Jakeman, European Head of Business Development – Smart TV, Mobile & Gaming, Samsung Electronics, comments: “This is an exciting evolution of our continued relationship with DAZN, which has completely disrupted the sports streaming market in Europe by providing innovative and ground-breaking new ways for fans to watch premium sports content. Being able to offer free to watch, live football matches to Samsung TV Plus users in Germany reflects Samsung’s commitment to redefining the FAST landscape in Europe. Samsung and DAZN share a vision to find new ways to serve the best sports content to viewers in ways that work for them, and it’s fantastic that our partnership continues to grow.”
Alice Mascia, CEO of DAZN in the DACH region, says: “We are very excited to launch DAZN FAST+ together with Samsung in Germany. Samsung TV Plus is a popular and growing platform and thanks to our cooperation, even more fans can now enjoy sports from the strong DAZN programme catalogue. Our collaboration with Samsung once again demonstrates our role as an innovator in the sports industry by strengthening DAZN’s position as a one-stop shop for all sports.”
