DAZN Up To 8 Million Subscribers; Most From Outside U.S.

DAZN has “nearly 8 million subscribers” worldwide, double the 4 million subs that the streaming service was reported to have six months ago, according to sources cited by CNBC's Julia Boorstin. It also is “more than double ESPN+’s three-and-a-half million subscribers as of earlier this month.” Sources said that the growth “has been driven by demand for boxing here in the U.S. and soccer overseas.” Approximately 90% of the subscribers are from outside the U.S. One thing the growing subscriber base has done for DAZN is “make it more of a contender for the sports rights that are coming up” (“Fast Money Halftime,” CNBC, 11/22).
