Paramount’s free streaming service Pluto TV and sports streaming service DAZN announced a partnership to bring sport content to Pluto TV, with the launch of five DAZN channels across Denmark, Sweden, Norway, France, Latin America, Germany, and Austria. Through the deal, coverage of the best football, darts and fight events are coming to the platform in these territories, including exclusives for live events, highlights shows, and on-demand content.
In detail, the recently announced channels are: DAZN X Pluto TV International Football (live on Pluto TV in Germany and Austria), DAZN Women Football (live on Pluto TV in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, France, and Latin America), DAZN Darts X Pluto TV (live on Pluto TV in Germany and Austria), DAZN Fights X Pluto TV, and DAZN Heldinnen X Pluto TV (available from August 28 in Germany and Austria).
“We are thrilled to join forces with DAZN and bring such a strong selection of sports content to Pluto TV viewers, including exclusive coverage for football, darts and fights in Germany and Austria. This partnership showcases our commitment to providing exceptional content to our audience, making sport, including niche disciplines such as farts, more accessible to a wider audience. We are also happy to offer Pluto TV viewers unparalleled access to some of the most prestigious women’s competitions, empowering them to witness the talent, excitement, and passion of female athletes through two channels dedicated to women sports,” declared Olivier Jollet, Executive Vice President and International General Manager at Pluto TV.
“This is yet another exciting partnership that underpins DAZN’s strategy of delivering an ever-increasing range of top-quality sports content to fans on a global basis. This deal increases accessibility and reach for our rights holders’ content, such as the UEFA Women’s Champions League, and creates even more visibility for DAZN’s best in class coverage, products and services as we continue our journey to being the world’s leading sports and entertainment platform,” added Pete Parmenter, EVP Business Development at DAZN.
DAZN and Pluto TV have a longstanding relationship, dating back to 2019 when they partnered to deliver the DAZN Fight Zone, a three-hour weekly programming block, to Pluto TV viewers in the United States.
