CPL TV Contract

Most streaming services have this.

Good to hear, 90% of the soccer I watch is consumed via cable. Do most streaming services that offer this have the scoreline posted with full match video? Or just date and teams?

I signed up. https://www.dazn.com . Not sure if you can see the schedule unless you are signed up.

You have until Aug 27 I believe to cancel if you don't like it. But it already has older Argentinian games from June/July and recent J league games. All other games are scheduled. Mostly start the Aug 5 weekend. Looks like all League 1 games. Most English Championship. I don't see a Cardiff games scheduled to see Hoilett.

I see the free month trial, and I'll likely sign up middle of August when the European season starts.

So at the moment, I can only see the front page, but I do see the La Liga and Serie A emblems there.

When you're browsing through the schedule, what do you see for those two leagues at the moment? Thanks in advance.

For me, how beIN and DAZN split up the La Liga games will be the big factor in what I sign up for again in August, that's just for me though. I'm sure, like we've discussed above, that there will be some people, some friends of mine for sure, who will be looking at DAZN for the NFL games for sure.

I like what I'm seeing from DAZN but I will wait until we find out where CPL is ending up. In really disappointed that the bundesliga is being shuffled into sportsnet now and reduced in quantity.

Yeah...I wonder if DAZN essentially has La Liga minus Real Mardrid/Barcelona games...

pretty sure I saw a youtube review of the DAZN PS4 app...

On twitter they replied and said the PS4 and Apple TV app will be available soon. Android TV app is working for me.

No Serie A and La Liga games in the schedule yet, but the schedule only goes to Aug 10th. I assume I will see how many Serie A and La Liga games they have when we get closer to the start of those leagues. I wouldn't be surprised if BeIN sub-leases the rights to DAZN for Serie A and La Liga. They do that with FuboTV for their streaming product because BeIN sports actual streaming product is somewhat limited.

Anyway back to CPL TV contract. I am glad there is another potential provider that can give the CPL decent coverage. Maybe even in future compete for the TV contract and increase the TV revenues.

So I noticed this today 

http://stadiumdigital.com/about-us/

I was aware of Lulu, but I wasn't aware of the background of some of the people involved... Mark Silver looks like a guy with a lot of experience in the streaming world. Won awards for his involvement with CBC's streaming of the 2010 Olympics (which, personally, is some of the best utilization of streaming I've ever seen), setting up TSN GO, etc. Given who follows who on Twitter and the rest of the Stadium Digital board, fairly sure this guy would be working pretty closely with CPL

Not saying this changes much of the conversation, just saying that they look like they have the expertise available to make the best decision for the league

Great find, and definitely does change the conversation quite a bit, considering the three names on that link lol.

The discussions between Bob Young, TSN and MLSE must be on some next level this year.

It looks like past TSN involvement, so it doesn't necessarily mean they are working together now. Just meant the people involved are very qualified (and processor have those handy connections)

I'd say it's likely we see a CPL streaming platform developed by them then. Young being the chairman makes it seem almost certain.

Awesome find, can't believe no one stumbled on that. Beirne has said streaming was big part of plan and I guess we know where now

Just a random thing to stumble upon. Mark Silver liked a tweet of mine, I thought the name rung a bell, and I checked out his page which linked to the web site. Same reason I suspected Belan was involved months before it was public. 

OK, time to take a break before I start looking like this

I hate to break it to you, but everyone on these forums has looked like that for at least the last year.

Noted this on the DAZN thread in World Soccer

CPL followed DAZN Canada right away and currently doesn't appear to follow any other network or service (not counting MLS on TSN). No TSN, Sportsnet, beIN, TLN, CBC. Now Twitter follows are not evidence but it is interesting.

A TV deal with Sportsnet and DAZN Canada would be huge for the CPL

I don't really see that happening unless Sportsnet agreed to blackout CPL games on it's streaming service. I'm not really sure there will be enough games at first to share between two broadcasters anyway.

Just on MLS's YouTube channel. If @mlsintoronto reads this thread, please make sure the CPL is on top of having condensed games and highlights up on YouTube ASAP. I'm trying to find highlights for TFC-NYCFC and the video is not yet up on MLS' page.

I watched a highlights compilation last night on TFC's website if you still haven't found it yet.
