TORONTO, July 20, 2017 /CNW/ - Revolutionary sports streaming service DAZN will be the only place Canadians can access NFL Game Pass, which includes every live NFL game of the 2017 season - pre-season, regular season, the playoffs and the Super Bowl. As the new home of NFL Game Pass, which includes all Sunday games previously offered in NFL Sunday Ticket, and NFL RedZone, DAZN will have both live and on-demand NFL coverage with no blackouts, meaning fans will never have to miss another epic touchdown, field goal or interception. Available on a wide range of connected devices, including Smart TVs, tablets, smartphones and games consoles, fans can watch DAZN year-round at home or on-the-go.
DAZN will be a game-changer for Canadian sports fans by giving them access to all NFL games live and on-demand as part of NFL Game Pass - where they want, when they want and how they want, any day of the week. Monthly and annual packages will be available. Sports fans will be able to subscribe for $20 a month or annually for a limited introductory price of $150. In addition, all subscribers will get 30 days free.
"We know that Canada is home to many NFL fans and we're excited to transform the way they experience the NFL and other live sports", said James Rushton, CEO of DAZN. "After successfully launching in four countries around the world, we are thrilled to bring DAZN to Canada where fans are so passionate and sport is a way of life.
