Sky Sports offers fans the chance to watch all the big events in the UK and Ireland. They also provide live coverage of F1 racing and football. But there’s a new competitor – DAZN – which is aiming to bring boxing to the UK too. The ‘Netflix of sport’ is now available in more than 200 countries and territories, with a focus on boxing.
The question is, how do they both compare and which is the best option for you when it comes to sports coverage? Let’s take a look at them both side by side!

Both apps are available on multiple platforms, including computers, Smart TVs, smartphones and cable boxes. For example, DAZN’s app focuses on a selection of MMA events and wrestling. It also has a wide selection of documentaries.

Its leading all-in-one platform Sky Q aggregates the best TV and free-to-air channels, thousands of movies and series on demand and a broad range of top apps.
While both offer coverage of international sports and events, they generally focus on more localised sports.

DAZN is similar too, as in Italy, it holds the rights for Serie A games and boxing.
