DAZN To Deliver More Original Content to Snapchat

Social app’s Discover page will offer exclusive programming surrounding boxing events

Continuing to expand its digital-content portfolio, DAZN has struck a partnership with the popular social-media app Snapchat to deliver custom video to its Discover page.

As part of the partnership, announced today, DAZN will produce two new shows that surround some of the streaming company’s exclusive boxing events. It will also heavily program its Our Story page with exclusive content from those live events.

DAZN Fight Week is expected to premiere on Snapchat’s Discover page in the U.S. today. New episodes will appear every day in the week leading up to the Canelo Alvarez–Sergey Kovalev bout on Nov. 2.

DAZN Fight Night, meanwhile, will premiere on Nov. 2 featuring real-time highlights (the first time a show on Snapchat will have in-progress boxing highlights) and a complete recap of the week in fight sports.

“The DAZN Snapchat slate will bring fight fans closer to the action while allowing us to showcase the sport to an entirely new audience,” Jamie Horowitz, EVP, content, DAZN North America, said in a company release. “These shows were specifically developed to leverage the Snapchat platform and highlight the sport’s most thrilling moments. Viewers can expect everything from quick-cut highlights on fight night to exclusive access from a fighter’s locker-room moments before a bout.”

According to the release, DAZN Fight Week and DAZN Fight Night will continue in the week leading up to KSI vs. Logan Paul 2, a rematch of the two YouTube personalities on Nov. 9, with new episodes beginning Nov. 4. Also, coverage on DAZN’s Our Story page will debut on Nov. 9 with user-generated content and broadcast-quality highlights.
