A little while ago I got approached by DAZN to be a part of their promo squad as they entered the Canadian market. As an avid NFL fan I was more than willing to be a part of anything that had to do with football.
Along with being able to watch NFL RedZone all day on their app via my Chromecast (awesome!) - I was also offered a once in a lifetime experience last night for the Sunday Night Football opener.
DAZN invited me and 15 of my closest friends to attend a party thrown by them, food and drinks inclusive, at a downtown Toronto condo.
IT WAS AMAAAAAZING!
We had such an incredible time. The staff was super helpful and available for anything we needed. The condo itself was something I hope to make enough money to afford one day. It had a nice living room with a sectional, open kitchen, and a huge terrace with a hot tub, another sectional, a BBQ and a view of the CN tower. Heaven.
I hope this company does really well in Canada and stays for a while. As someone who has been watching NFL RedZone for many years, I can only speak to my stream - which was perfect and went without interruption yesterday. As I read twitter feeds I realize that was not everyone's experience. But because they are new, I'm sure they will work hard to fix all the technical issues for the fans going forward.
All I can say to DAZN is a big thank you from my friends and myself for this experience. It will not be forgotten.
Also, I have to add to this glee, my team won the Sunday Night opener. #HOWBOUTDEMCOWBOYS !?
