Dazn fined EUR 500,000 for misleading advertising in Italy

Wednesday 27 March 2019 | 10:16 CET | News
Italian antitrust watchdog AGCM has fined sport streaming platform Dazn a total of EUR 500,000 for two breaches of the country's consumer code following an investigation launched last summer. The provider owned by UK-based media company Perform Group was accused of failing to provide adequate information regarding its Serie A football offer for the 2018-19 season, above all with regard to its claim that the matches could be seen "whenever you want, where you want", without any reference to the technical limitations of the service.
