DAZN is launching two sports channels on Sky Italia on the Eutelsat Hotbird postion of 13 degrees East.
In contrast to the collaboration between DAZN and Sky Deutschland in Germany which just refers to distribution in Sky sports bars, all Sky Italia subscribes can sign up for DAZN via satellite. The broadcasts of DAZN 1 HD and DAZN 2 HD on Hotbird are encrypted with NDS/Videoguard.
Last June, Perform Group’s DAZN acquired exclusive multi-platform Serie A rights in Italy.
With the two additional DAZN channels Sky Italia subscribers now have access to all Serie A and Serie B games, as well as La Liga, Ligue 1, Premiere League, Africa Cup, Copa Libertadores, Copa Sundamericana, UFC, MLB, NHL, and many more.
