There’s a new place to watch the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the UK and Ireland in 2023: Dazn, the most flexible and accessible way to enjoy cricket’s premier franchise competition.
Every match of the 2023 IPL season will be available to watch in the UK and Ireland on Dazn, the world’s ultimate sports destination platform. Beginning on March 31, all 74 matches, including the playoffs and finals, will be included in the Dazn subscription, at no extra cost to those already signed up to the service.
If you are a new customer, Dazn’s monthly Flex Pass comes in at just £19.99, which, alongside the ability to cancel with 30 days’ notice, makes it the most accessible and flexible way for the hundreds of thousands of IPL fans in the UK and Ireland to enjoy the action and represents the best value for money too.
Dazn’s wider offering is boxing, showing over 50 top boxing events annually and also boasting a roster of premium MMA content, and the data shows a significant correlation between IPL and boxing fans.
The fast-paced short-format cricket tournament is in its 16th year and remains enthralling to domestic and international fans alike. The highly anticipated 2023 season will feature plenty of the biggest names in world cricket, including the likes of MS Dhoni, Ben Stokes, Hardik Pandya, Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Jofra Archer, Sam Curran, Jos Buttler, Virat Kohli and Harry Brook, each bringing their own brand of attacking cricket to some the most iconic venues in the game.
“This year has been massive for me as a cricketer, and the opportunity to play for the Sunrisers in the IPL is another huge challenge that I am relishing,” said Brook, England and now Sunrisers Hyderabad star. “It’s great news that all 74 IPL matches are going to be live and on-demand on Dazn to UK-based fans of the competition. It’s going to be a huge tournament this year and I can’t wait to be playing and competing with some of the biggest names in world cricket. Make sure you subscribe to Dazn to follow all the action.”
With a growth in its domestic OTT audience of over 305% in 2022 year-on-year and international expansion being a key strategic goal for IPL, Dazn is the perfect broadcast partner and well-placed to capitalise in the UK and Ireland, offering fans a range of flexible and affordable viewing options.
Fans can subscribe to Dazn directly at DAZN.com. The Dazn app can be downloaded on Smart TVs, games consoles, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Google Chromecast, Apple TV as well as on iPhone, iPad, and android mobile devices or watched on a web browser at DAZN.com.
DAZN 1 HD, a recently launched non-stop multi-sport channel, can be found on Sky channel 429 and will also be showing Dazn’s full IPL coverage.
Dazn Group CEO, Shay Segev said, “Dazn is committed to building the world’s ultimate destination for sports fans; this means investing in developing our platform alongside acquiring and delivering premium rights. The IPL is the world’s foremost T20 cricket competition, which features the biggest names in cricket battling it out over 74 matches, all of which are available live and exclusively to Dazn’s UK subscribers.
“With access to Dazn starting at less than nine pounds a month, and a whole host of quality content available, including not only IPL but the Joshua versus Franklin fight on 1 April, there’s never been a better time for UK sports fans to subscribe to Dazn.”
Founded in 2007, the IPL quickly became one of the world’s most watched and commercially significant sporting properties. In June 2022, global media rights to the IPL from 2023-2027 inclusive were sold by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for a total of around USD 6.2 billion, making the IPL one of the most valuable sports media properties in the world.
DAZN has apps available for all of the following platforms: Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire Stick, Amazon Fire Tablet, Android Phone & Tablet, iPhone & iPad, Android TV, LG, Smart TV, Panasonic Smart TV, Samsung Smart TV, Sony Smart TV, SmartCast, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Roku.
