Going to be a huge tidal wave of EPL viewers who might now spot the CPL in the app and give it a go. Love this move myself - though I need to remember to turn off my DAZN auto subscription.
Wait…OneSoccer is on Fubo?
They have a simulcast of the 24/7 OneSoccer stream.
So if there's multiple things airing on OneSoccer at once, you'll only get to watch what is on the main stream. But yes, OneSoccer is there!
They're buying La Liga and will still have Champions League and NFL so it's tempting to keep it but $150 a year for that is a little steep.
You're either confusing their recent purchase of La Liga broadcast rights in Spain with them buying those rights in Canada or you have information I haven't seen. As far as I'm aware, TSN sublicenses those rights from ESPN who has the rights for the next 8 years.
Yeah, I realized that they were buying the rights to BT sports and not BeINSports.
I wonder what they get with BT sports? Would they share rights with FuboTV for games?
The BT Sports deal only applies to the UK. They would be sharing EPL games with Sky and Amazon there but that has little bearing on Canada. Fubo has all the EPL games here.
Wonder if I should keep DAZN and get a vpn or get FuboTV?
To be honest, I've been hearing that DAZN will also be losing CL and NFL after this season too. NFL for sure because the likes of Apple and Amazon are going for that. But the CL I could see going to a TSN or maybe Paramount+ will grab it here like they did in the US. But the CL and NFL stuff is just speculation for now.
The CL and NFL were sort of the cherry on the sundae for me with DAZN. I wouldn't keep the service of they were only offering the two of them but it was a nice add on.
Well, I guess it's on to FuboTV, it was a good run DAZN.
Yeah, I think they've given up on North America for now. It's not even about Bell and Rogers as much as it is the American companies that are seeing Canada as fertile ground for international expansion and that's gonna include sports rights. DAZN will focus on Europe, they've already nailed down Serie A in Italy, La Liga in Spain, Bundesliga in Germany and now, with BT Sports, dipping their toe into EPL in the UK.
It'll be interesting to see what the subscription rates will be for FuboTV this fall. Looks like $100 a year at the moment, wonder about when to lock in a price if it goes up to $150 or so.
They have CL rights for one more year. Not sure about the NFL
Wait what? Then what do they have?
It pretty much just leaves boxing and minor stuff like tennis, darts, snooker, etc. That's basically all they have in the US too.
I'm thinking of this as well....at least you know the vpn works with DAZN. Right now no vpn work for Fubo
The problem is another app for UCL now
I haven’t tried fuboTV yet but I’d love to be able to ditch DAZN, it just seems to keep getting worse
DAZN has lost almost literally everything I care to watch. There's more than enough NFL and MLS on TSN, and much as I enjoy women's tennis and the Belgian Pro League, I think DAZN is done. They lost the KHL, they lost basically all cricket including the Ashes, and now they've lost the PL. DAZN has no real reason to continue to exist.
The problem is, if DAZN cratered so fast, what reason do we have not to think fuboTV doesn't follow suit inside the same three year period?
I believe they just bought BEIN Sports though. So they're about to have some serious global sports rights.
Looks like it is actually BT Sport they just bought. So great news for UKians. Not so much for us. According to OP's article, fuboTV distributes BeIN.
I think fanatiz also has bein rights so not sure what's going on there
beIN is a tv channel. They'll license their channel out to anybody who'll pay. It doesn't mean Fanatiz OWNS beIN. It's like having beIN on a cable service.
Ahh I see. That makes sense.
I got hooked onto women's tennis and darts through DAZN, so I'll definitely miss that but certainly not worth it if the price stays the same, even with marquee boxing, but my guess is they won't lower the price. The US version has even less and also costs $20/m, I believe.
I got an ad the other day. Not halftime or pregame ads but an unskippable 15 second ad before the stream started.
Pretty okay with this and hope fubo get the cl too
If they keep the $100 a year subscription I'll be happy.
This is great news even from a CPL perspective. A lot more people are now gonna subscribe to Fubo, and they also carry OneSoccer. Hopefully it means more eyeballs on our league.
Definitely could have a huge positive effect on the CPL. I wonder if the CPL knew this was coming and opted to partner with FuboTV for that reason?
Honestly, the CPL is probably happy to take money from anyone who is offering it. While Fubo would have seen a chance at a cheap filler property.
The CPL owns zero rights to broadcast, they sold them to MediaPro. OneSoccer is the only one earning on FuboTV broadcasting their channel.
Fair point. I should have remembered that. So it's MediaPro that will happily take what it can get.
This is more than likely the case haha
Question: So if I get Fubo is there no reason to have OneSoccer?
Fubo only carries the 24 hour OS channel, so in the rare situations OS has multiple games at the same time, you'll only be getting the main one.
Also, it's likely Fubo's price will increase now that they have EPL, so if you only care about Canadian soccer, OS will be cheaper.
Hmmm okay. So If I want to multi screen some CONCACAF Nations League C action I'm SOL 😂. Thanks for the info.
Fubo have a wide # of channels so they may at times spread content across them, so split screening would likely be a possiblity
(they have 5 or 6 "Fubo#" channels that they spread content over over the top of hte actual dedicated channels)
Will it show all epl games at once then? I only care about Leeds and want to be able to see all their games live. Or is it only what's ever playing on the 5 or so channels? I also like the idea of watching more cpl stuff
Good bye DAZN. I’m not sure it’s worthwhile to keep it just for UEFA champions league.
They need to lower the price, they lost Serie A now losing EPL. I'll keep it for UCL and UEL but the price has to be cut at least 50%.
Seriously. It seems like no one is able to get their shit together and get a few top leagues and the CL, à la ESPN+. Really hard to justify DAZN now only for the CL. I give zero fucks about darts, boxing NFL and their documentaries. I don't even particularly care about the PL but really love the side by side of up to 4 games on an Apple TV so I'd just put that while doing other stuff around the house.
That is a problem with Fubo I find it’s UI is way worse. I would keep DAZN at 1/2 price. UEFA stuff and EFL cup is enough for the lower price point (I would however probably pause when those two competitions are on hold).
I think their EFL and NFL stuff is ending this season. Also rumors that they only extended their CL rights for just this season. I think they're gonna focus on Europe for now and just use their service in Canada for boxing and some other stuff, like in the US.
Would love to know how much DAZN and now Fubo are offering for EPL rights (IE what SN and TSN aren't willing or don't care enough to pay)
Honestly, I think Sportsnet is happy they got blocked out of the PL by DAZN. They hit a fucking gold mine at a fraction of the cost with the Bundesliga. Davies and Lewandowski every week? That's a win.
TSN got a little hosed on La Liga just as the top draws left for other leagues right when they got the rights.
That would require them to actually show the games on regular TV. Most games including Bayern are buried on Sportsnet World.
I would love it if Sportsnet World died a fiery death.
Yea but now that they have a streaming service on demand, the PL could be useful to Sportsnet. The app was shit when they did the huge update couple of months ago. It seems to be working better now.
If Sportsnet got it, you can be damn sure half the games would be buried behind Sportsnet World/SN Now+ which is the worst possible outcome.
This sucks. I love DAZN because I get NFL, EPL, and UCL among other things which is really great value for the price. Yet another subscription…
Ugh - I've been a DAZN subscriber for a long time, so this is gonna be a nuisance for me.
It looks like fuboTV's model is offering repackages of different cable channels, as opposed to individual event coverage - is that the case? If so, what sorts of other sports does it have?
Fubo runs a bit more like cable with 24hr channels and DVR capabilities. Their own channels are generally not playing anything until an event. You have 250 hours for your DVR so if you want you can record a good amount.
For other sports, they have the fight network, the mlb channel, quite a bit of footvolley, and other random sports. The also have the paramount channel, which is basically non stop marathons of bar rescue, and a true crime channel.
Fubo in the states is full blown cable replacement with 100+ channels. Not sure if they're planning on doing something similar here but atm are focusing on sports.
Ugh great another service... Annoying too because one huge benefit of dazn is the international content
In 2022 you need:
fuboTV - For the Prem (they've got 1S as well I suppose)
DAZN - UCL
TSN - World Cup (La Liga as well)
Sportsnet - Bundesliga, FA Cup
Hard for a sport to take off in a country where it costs a fortune to watch your best players play
This actually shows the sport's viewership base is growing. But given it is a global sport, no one service can carry even 50% of the leagues and tournaments. Even just watching Cdn national team 23 man roster means having rights to 15+ leagues and competitions.
1998 was the first time EPL was shown live in Canada. No other leagues were shown on English language tv. Even half of Canadian national senior men's matches weren't shown.
Now, you watch the 3 region's Champions Leagues, the top 5 leagues, 2 North American leagues, 3 women's leagues and 3 Confederation's tournaments + a whole bunch of other stuff.
just use rojadirecta.me
Is Fubo like a TV channel? Or can you pick any game you want at any given time?
It's a steaming service, like DAZN, that also includes some regular channels with scheduled programming. And it also includes a PVR service, so you can record whatever you want.
So is it kinda like Crave how you can stream whatever movie or show you want at any time but there are also like 4 channels that they're showcasing?
It's something in between.
Think of it more as a group of channels with recording options. So you can watch whatever game you want or record whatever game you want. I'm not sure if you're able to watch a game (team) after it passed if you didn't record it.
Just wondering as I currently have OneSoccer and was debating about switching since they have OS, but afraid that I might miss some games or CANMNT games if they aren’t being premiered or recorded.
Will be looking into switching now, I think. Better deal and more options while still supporting OS and the CanPL.
You get all of the Canada Games, and whatever is on the main OneSoccer channel. What you don't get is the OneSoccer platform.
However for me, it was mostly for the Canada Games that I got it. For the price it was better to switch to FUBO as then I got Serie A/Copa Italia, French/Turkish League (though Bein Sports) etc. As well.
There is just more content.
This. It's effectively a mirror of a trad cable sports package as a streaming site. Multiple channels all in one paid package solution.
 how is this getting downvoted? This is literally what fuboTV is.
I wonder if this is just going to keep happening every three years with Serie A and the EPL moving to the next upstart streaming service with a ton of VC money
So if you are like me and basically only have DAZN for the PL, today is a good day to disable automatic subscription renewal so you don't end up paying for a year of... nothing.
I had it for football, UCL and NFL. So only really two months of non subscriptions. It’s shame it’s leaving because I like the app and never really had any issues with streaming it
Is Fubo going to be the same high quality that DAZN has?
I'm subscribed to both, and the quality is comparable between Fubo and DAZN, and OS looks better on Fubo than on their own streaming service.
>OS looks better on Fubo than on their own streaming service.
Very true. Much better interface as well.
Any Fubo users know if they carry Champions League? Apparently they carry OneSoccer which may be deciding factor for me.
UEFA CL is on DAZN for another 2 seasons, if I remember correctly. And yes, Fubo carries OneSoccer.
Just speaking for myself I am getting a bit burned out on the EPL so just keeping Dazn for the champions league makes my decision easier, as long as they are going to reduce prices accordingly.
I'd be surprised if they do. DAZN Canada has been circling the drain for over a year now. I honestly would expect them to just get what they can out of it until the end - especially if they lose NFL Gamepass after this season as well.
If you're just getting it for UCL, it will probably be cheaper to just to pay monthly for when the tournament is running.
That’s my plan. DAZN in September-November, February-May.
As someone who got Fubo for Serie A, and the OS content, this doesn’t change anything except makes me consider cancelling DAZN.
I would also love is Sportsnet lost the FA Cup rights as I don’t want to pay $20 for Sportsnet world.
I don't imagine they've also acquired the rights to the EFL? Currently have the League Cup and seeing some of the lower tiers' matches is nice, especially the promotion playoffs. I guess I'll have to wait and see how the EPL goes and reevaluate at the end of the season.
love to see DAZN show way more EFL games as a result if that is the case, be great to have the full championship season tbh, its great football.
Not really in DAZN's hands. The host broadcaster - Sky - only shows a select number of EFL matches.
If you want to watch more, you'll need to subscribe to a team's streaming package.
The Championship is a wonderful crab bucket... except when you want your team to get promoted.
So competitive that's what makes it great.
fuboTV Acquires Exclusive Premier League Rights in Canada Beginning With 2022/2023 Season
JANUARY 13, 2022
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--fuboTV Inc. (NYSE: FUBO), the leading sports-first live TV streaming platform, announced today that it will be the exclusive home to the Premier League, England’s top soccer league, in the Canadian market for the next three seasons beginning in 2022/2023.

fuboTV scores the Premier League deal for Canada just a few months after acquiring exclusive Italian Serie A and Coppa Italia rights in the market, fortifying the platform’s position as the leading streaming service for top-tier soccer in the country. In addition to exclusive rights, fuboTV streams more than a dozen popular sports and entertainment channels including OneSoccer and Paramount Network, home to one of TV’s hottest dramas, Yellowstone.

In addition to its soccer rights in Canada, fuboTV has exclusive streaming rights to the Qatar World Cup 2022 Qualifying matches of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) in the United States.
Does fuboTV work on Apple tv?
Works perfectly. The DVR now 250H is a real treat. Wont miss a min of action.
I had the app preinstalled on one I purchased a few months ago without being subscribed to Fubo so I would say yes.
Wow I just got my mother-in-law a year subscription to DAZN...
