The habit of following content and commenting on it via a “second screen” such as a smartphone represents a strategic opportunity for us: to increase viewing involvement in the app, making the fan even more a participant and protagonist, even when following the event from remote. And it is precisely to respond to this growing way of consuming content that DAZN’s “Party” was born. We are entering a new phase in the development of our brand whose final goal is to make DAZN what in jargon is called a one-stop-shop, a single place where fans can easily and fully experience their sporting passion in a more and more immersive.
The connection between sport and technology is increasingly important and is leading the content consumption to the next level even more interactive. According to a recent study conducted globally by the consulting firm MIDiA Research49% of sports fans who consume content do so while performing other activities at the same time: in just one year, daily social media usage while consuming digital entertainment increased from 4.8 hours to 5.2 hours.
A growing type of consumption that sees strong interest on the part of the younger generations consume content in less traditional ways, with 62% of people aged between 16 and 19 enjoying audiovisual content from their smartphone.
