Just noticed the arrival on Android and Apple TV in the UK of the service apps prior to the Boxing only launch next month.

What's up with the naming? Apparently it's pronounced "da zone" but it just looks odd to me
Arqiva, just switch to DVB-T2 already...

I've heard about it/have vague knowledge (I was never there for it but I've heard/seen intros and such) and to be fair "LDN" is still used as a short version of London in some cases. It's also pretty clearly London.

On the other hand, "DAZN" doesn't really have a clear link (at least for me). I might be missing something that bigger sports fans would notice, so if someone knows what exactly the link is please tell me.

Noted today an opening rock bottom sub of £1.99 per month. No indication as to when this might be revised upwards.

"Da Zone", as in being "in the zone". It's a terrible name, I agree.

I've been calling it Daz-N which compared to Da Zone doesn't sound like it's from circa 2002.

Clicking around the website, I notice they have three UK offices. Two in London and one in Leeds. One of the London locations is Feltham.
So I wonder if they have taken over the former offices, studios and tech infrastructure left by British Eurosport when they left the site?

WTA World Feed commentary comes from DAZN Media's office in Leeds, I believe it used to come from Feltham.

Eurosport shared a building with Arqiva, whose site has closed. (It's on street view here, complete with pigeon netting over the dishes on the roof). DAZN are in the unit next door. I'm not sure if they have much broadcasty stuff there beyond some VO booths, which are used extensively for the WTA world feeds. Their main UK MCRs are in Leeds and Bangor (NI).
