DAZN could soon show the Premier League on its 'Netflix of sport' streaming service, as the company eye up a takeover of BT Sport.
Premier League television rights in the UK are mainly split between Sky Sports and BT Sports, with Prime Video showing two rounds of England's top tier.
For several years there has been talk of streaming services attempting to bid for more of the games, with Amazon, Netflix and Facebook amongst those mentioned.
Now the Premier League, and even the Aviva Premiership Rugby, could be next on the company's list, as they consider a bid for BT Sports.
According to The Times, DAZN are amping up their attempts to buy the television broadcasters channels and take over their rights.
There has previously been rumours that BT were looking to sell but earlier this year they agreed to keep their rights deal with England's top tier of football until 2025.
BT are also reportedly in talks to show this winter's Ashes series in Australia, although there are also rumours that England's cricket team won't travel down under.
DAZN's potential buying of BT would give them the rights in the UK for the football that they want, with the service already showing the Premier League in Spain, Japan and Canada.
It would also mean they have a ready-made production centre, with the BT Studios in London likely to be part of the deal.
As well as the football, and rugby, in this country, BT also show the Champions League, Serie A, Ligue 1, Moto GP and WWE.
Most interestingly is the fact that they currently have the rights for Matchroom Boxing's rivals Frank Warren Promotions and it would be intriguing to see what would happen.
The Premier League would also have to agree to the move to DAZN from BT Sport, as their agreement with the league likely has a 'change of ownership clause.'
The report says that as yet there has been no approach to the league about a change but DAZN’s chairman Kevin Mayers said this week the company would 'would love to have the EPL.'
