Dazn gives Italian users free month following blackout

Friday 16 April 2021 | 10:06 CET | News
Sports streaming platform Dazn has offered users affected by a temporary blackout on 11 April a free month's access to the service, reports Mondo Mobile Web, citing an email sent to subscribers. The technical problem resulted in a total blackout of the service and affected the Inter-Cagliari and Hellas Verona-Lazio games in Italy's top-tier Serie A football league. Dazn attributed the issue to a failure of the authentication service provided by its external partner Comcast Technology Solutions (CTS), which it said also impacted other European broadcasters.
