Anthony Joshua versus Jermaine Franklin is set to be DAZN 1 HD's first mega event

DAZN is finally launching its mixed-sports linear channel in the UK and Ireland following years of speculation in the industry. The channel will arrive on SKY on channel no. 429 from 23 March onwards. 

The linear channel launch was made in hindsight due to the upcoming blockbuster boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Jermaine Franklin on 1st April, which is one of the reasons behind the launch. Following that, upcoming fights involving Canelo Alvarez, Katie Taylor, and Ryan Garcia will likely be shown on the channel in the future. 

The channel will be included in DAZN's monthly saver £9.99 price with a £99.99 annual subscription price.

Speaking on the launch, DAZN Group CEO Shay Segev said, “Getting Dazn widely distributed is a priority for us as it delivers our great and growing array of content to more and more fans. We have ambitious, long-term and strategic plans for the UK market. The more people get to know Dazn and what we offer, not just in terms of rights but the full range of digital, interactive and sports entertainment we are developing, the better.

“This launch is great news for sports fans. DAZN 1 HD will optimise exposure for the upcoming Anthony Joshua fight, ensuring it is his most hotly anticipated and accessible bout in over a decade.”

Anthony Joshua also shed his thoughts on this exciting announcement, “DAZN is working really hard to take sports broadcasting to new levels and bring fans closer to the action than ever before. It’s a huge element of why I wanted to commit my long-term future to the platform. The launch of DAZN 1 HD on channel 429 will make it even easier for fans to access my return to the ring on Saturday 1 April against Jermaine Franklin. Make sure you tune in for a spectacular night of boxing.”

DAZN linear channel is set to bring a run of different sports events

The upcoming Linear channel is a mixed sports channel and has big events in its impressive portfolio. The Misfits Boxing events of KSI will be featured in the channel's lineup along with a number of combat sports shows such as Professional Fighters League, MMA Bushido, MMA Naciones, Oktagon MMA, King of Kings, Brave Combat Federation, and Muay Thai For Life.

All Elite Wrestling and Impact Wrestling are also part of its universe from the entertainment wrestling arena.
