With this launch, DAZN can now accept mobile payments from nearly all mobile subscribers in Japan, including those with NTT Docomo, Softbank, Y!Mobile, au, and UQ Mobile.

These initiatives form part of the 'DAZN for Operators' programme, through which DAZN collaborates with TV and telecoms operators to provide improved, seamless streaming experiences for sports fans and generate new revenue streams and value for partners.

Ben King, Chief Subscription Officer, DAZN commented, "With new seasons of the J.League, NPB and Formula One upon us and the stars of Japanese football appearing regularly in the Premier League and La Liga, DAZN is making it even more effortless for fans across Japan to conveniently access their favourite sports. 80 million NTT Docomo subscribers can now instantly add DAZN to their phone bill simply with the click of a button. Once again, entertainment services and operators are innovating and collaborating together to make premium sports easier to find, quicker to subscribe and better to watch."
