This is the harbinger of not understanding the dynamics of soccer when you live here in the British Crown Colony in North America. EVERYBODY who knows soccer follies UEFA and FIFA. Everyone is following the aging superstars they send to play here. Everybody knows that, by far, the highest example of soccer is played by the best players in the world and each and everyone of them plays Champions Cup. Not showing it hurts all involved in soccer education in Canada and shows those who love the truly universal sport that they are SECOND class when it comes to soccer education and knowledge, plain and simple.
First of all - Canada is NOT a British Crown Colony!
Secondly - DAZN obtained the broadcasting rights to UEFA soccer games in Canada simply because they were willing to bid more than Bell or Rogers. It is a straightforward commercial decision.
DAZN obviously has very ambitious plans to become a major soccer TV player in Canada and other countries.
As co-hosts, Canada should automatically qualify for 2026 World Cup.
It won’t hurt Canadian soccer but it hurst is that we paid Rogers to krogerfeedback watch champions league. Simple I just got back from Europe and my bill for Rogers’s is over 200$ and I’m canceling it right now and then you go complaint to UEFA
I think, DAZN obtained the broadcasting rights to UEFA soccer games in Canada simply because they were willing to bid more than Bell or Rogers. It is a straightforward commercial decision.
I had to pay DAZN to watch the best soccer live in play today - incredible late equalizer by DeMaria for PSG , eh! As a British Crown Colony possession, at least we can still see the Barclays Premier that the Bell Rogers Alliance get from the Limeys for our servitude and money we pay to the British Institutions and their parasites here , disguised as the Monarchist League! DAZN had numerous interruptions - very poor transmission and app - no matter the device you stream it on - one can read the hatred Canadian subscribers feel towards them as a UK based streaming station, as we get no more cable! But we got legal pot like those on soma in Aldous Huxley's utopia so as to keep us in line and complacent and stoned. Imagine living from now on without Champions Cup and Europa League on Canadian cable? Neither can I!
This is precisely the point they sold the broadcasting rights A corporate decision. Another dumb corporate decision no different than the dumb corporate decision our federal liberals have done to the oil patch young man. And don’t feed your lies on this not being a colonized country because the attitudes from a business perspective are colonized. It’s about money.... always is and goodbye my Bell account and good buy TSN. An economic deflationary environment and you have the gull to cancel international football/soccer and force Canadians to PAY to watch the best sport on earth. Instead I watch boring CFL NFL and NHL ( watered down over the years ) and the egg head broadcasters ....NOT. Disgusted to the core, a minor reflection of a far larger looming issue, selling out to the biggest bidder. Corporations do not care. Take that upstairs young man.
Simple solution . I will never sign with DAZN to watch Uefa soccer . If nobody signs with them - soccer will be back on cable
