As reported by the specialized website Digital TV Europe, the sports OTT DAZN will resume its expansion plans to 200 countries around the world this next July 24th, coinciding with the boxing event that will face US Vergil Ortiz Jr. and Colombian Samuel Vargas. The launch will be made in a beta phase, for users who choose to test the platform and request a previous registration, which DAZN called ‘Beta Community’.
‘A number of fans will be selected on a first come, first served basis to take part in our Beta Community. Beta testers can participate in beta testing, feedback and research to help improve the DAZN service before it officially launches’, is reported in an email sent to DAZN testers.
In May 2019, DAZN began its operations in Brazil, and is also available in Spain, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, Canada, Italy, the US, and Japan. In the new 200 countries it will be launched, DAZN will initially offer content in English, focused on boxing events. The platform’s expansion plans were officially announced in March.
