DAZN seeking to rent Italian TV frequencies to air Serie A - report

Friday 12 March 2021 | 09:48 CET | News
Sports streaming service DAZN is discussing the possibility of acquiring DTT frequencies in Italy if it wins the auction to air top-tier Serie A games, according to an unnamed source cited by Reuters. DAZN and Sky are the current holders of the domestic Serie A rights, having paid EUR 973 million per season for the 2018-2021 cycle back in 2018. The sports streaming service is one of the frontrunners to secure rights for the 2021-24 cycle, having last month lodged a EUR 2.5 billion bid for exclusive rights to air seven out of 10 games per match day.
