DAZN to show Bundesliga live for upcoming season
DAZN has secured the TV rights to the German Bundesliga. The subscription video streaming service is replacing Eurosport as the holder of the rights. This was announced by DAZN and Eurosport on Thursday.
The Eurosport package is acquired for around 70 million euros. DAZN will show 30 games on Friday, five each on Sunday and Monday and that for the upcoming season until the end of the season 2020/2021.
DAZN will be broadcasting the Supercup for the first time
In addition, DAZN will air all relegation games at the end of each season and the Super Cup (Bundesliga Champion versus Cup Winner). The duel between big tivals Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich takes place on 3rd August.
Due to the additional investment the price for DAZN subscription will go up to € 11.99. If users will complete an annual subscription the costs will be € 119.99 per year (€ 10 per month). The changes will take effect from 1 August 2019. You are new to DAZN? Get your free trial month here!
Eurosport has been showing a total of 40 Bundesliga matches on its pay-play platforms in the German-speaking region since 2017. The agreement is part of a larger cooperation between DAZN and Eurosport. Accordingly, the content of Eurosport (i.a. French Open, US Open, Paris-Roubaix, Australian Open, Tour de France, Giro d'Italia), should also be distributed via the streaming service.
For 2021 it is expected that DAZN wants to enter the race for the live rights of the Bundesliga.
