    Remember DAZN is going out of business.

    20 markets worldwide by 2020 is impressive.

    That's a good start. I'm hoping they succeed. For me, the streaming model is way less expensive in the long run than maintaining premium network subscriptions & buying PPV's. I don't care about cable, so I just let Netflix, Amazon Prime, and DAZN handle whatever TV time I get.

    Their presentation is too corporate for my liking. At least ESPN has some flavor to it.

    thats at least 50 million a month with $10 old subscribers, and $20 new subscribers. thats just subscription revenue, you still have venue sales, and ad revenue. and its still growing. with projected sales, they will be able to afford to sign all top fighters, if they dont already.
    are they a public traded company? cause their stock looks promising.

    PBC worshipers are not going to like these numbers. Because you know it's not about boxing, it has to be one side versus the other.

    as someone who cut the chord I love Dazn and ESPN+

    I don't give a **** about commentary and presentation. they put on good fights and it's not bull**** ppvs like Khan vs Crawford.

    If that is 4 million worldwide what is their U.S. subscription total?

    No. DAZN is a privately owned company.

    They still keep it secret, hiding behind the global numbers (which is not a good sign) but there were rumors that it's about 600 000.

    That’s just who watched the Canelo fight. They will have additional subscribers for MMA and others that didn’t watch Canelo live. The other thing is the have economies of scale, meaning they know America is a major market. They can use profits from their other to subsidise the US until the numbers build.

    Not really hiding anything as it's not like they reveal regional numbers for other places and miss out the US. They keep saying its a global business which isn't dependent on one particular region.

    Of course the US will still be the toughest market to crack until they can get sports rights for the popular US sports.

    It's a decent start for DAZN but they have a long, long way to go before we can say they are a success. Overheads will be huge due to the cost of buying sporting rights, these are never cheap.

    Well, that can be partially true, but I'm sure if they had really good US numbers, they would definitely brag about it.

    But right now the main question is how many people subscribed just for one fight to see Canelo. Because DAZN had paid a ton of money to Alvarez (and a lot to Jacobs as well) but what they really produced was (maybe) a PPV which was several times cheaper than a boxing PPV in the US and the viewership numbers where even worse (or equal) than a usual Canelo PPV.

    And, also, DAZN has to deliver other fights in this month for which they won't get any new subscribers, most probably. So, in fact, they sold the Canelo vs. Jacobs fight and all other fights in this month for $20...
