Upstart sports streaming service DAZN eyes soccer market in Brazil

Weeks after it announced an expansion into Spain, the U.K.-based service DAZN laid the foundation for a 2019 rollout in Latin America’s largest economy, which will include coverage of the incredibly popular Copa Sudamericana and exclusive rights to France’s Ligue 1 and Italy’s Serie A. The “Netflix of sports,” as the company is sometimes called, is teaming up with Facebook and Youtube in advance of the launch, and will show live matches in soccer-hungry Brazil of Paris Saint-Germain and Turin, Italy-based Juventus, two of the world’s most popular clubs. (Bloomberg)
