Why Sports Streamer DAZN Is Launching A Linear TV Chanel

At face value, the decision by DAZN to enter into a resale agreement with a Pay-TV operator and to launch a linear channel is a strange move. After all, the sports streaming service prides itself on its disruptive direct-to-consumer (D2C) model and once had the ambition of being ‘Netflix for Sports’.

But these days, DAZN is more pragmatic. The company’s rapid expansion has been tempered by the impacts of Coronavirus and after restructuring and refinancing, there is a focus on doubling down in key markets and launching the long-awaited international service.

Netflix is testing a linear channel in France that should help with decision fatigue

Netflix is testing a programmed linear content channel in France, Variety reported. The channel, called Netflix Direct, will be available to Netflix streaming subscribers and will provide content from its existing streaming library in a linear format, much like cable and broadcast TV stations do.

“Maybe you’re not in the mood to decide, or you’re new and finding your way around, or you just want to be surprised by something new and different,” Netflix said in a statement announcing the new service. It chose France for the launch of Netflix Direct because traditional TV is “hugely popular” there, and people “just want a ‘lean back’ experience where they don’t have to choose shows,” the company said.

Netflix Direct rolled out in some parts of France November 5th, and will expand to more parts of the country next month. According to Variety, Netflix has about 9 million subscribers in France.

Netflix previously tested a Shuffle button, so apparently it’s very interested in exploring a viewer experience where you just turn the TV on and veg out. The service says it’s testing this in France because “many viewers like the idea of programming that doesn’t require them to choose what
