I've been using DAZN quite a lot over the past 5 weeks now. Most of the time it's been excellent, but once in a while soccer games that I'm watching start to drop in resolution very badly.

I use a lot of streaming between Netflix, HBO and MLB, and the quality is always excellent and consistent. Even on the sunday night at 9pm when everyone was watching GOT I was curious to see if there was going to be any issues, but it was always solid, even scrubbing back and forth a few times. DAZN needs to up their game in this regard.

I love the hundreds if not thousands of angry viewers comment. If only hundreds to thousands are angry, then it's probably a user end issue.

I have experimented a lot so far.

PS4 slim wired to 55 Sony LED - decent, but a little sluggish.

PS4 Pro wired to Vizio 49 4k tv - clean and smooth image.

Samsung Note 3 phone - fast and smooth, no complaints

Samsung Note 3 phone to Gen 1 Chromecast - unwatchable, known issues about Gen1 at DAZN

LG Pad III tablet - no issues everything smooth

LG Paf III tablet to Gen 1 Chromecast - unwatchable

Surface Pro 3 wireless - good on IE. Didnt bother trying other browsers.

PS3 Slim wireless to Insignia 55 1080p LED - Sunday was great, first Monday was great, late Monday had buffering and pixel issues. Makes me think it was on my end since it was good otherwise.

All in I am happy with quality. The apps on the other hand are so very simplistic. They desperately need to think about providing any kind of feature.

Took awhile before I realized they even had a highlight mode. (great for football games btw)

Redzone was flawless for me on Sunday. I had it on my Surface by my tv while playing Destiny 2 all day.

Very happy with the service so far.

Just got an apology email from DAZN about their technical issues. They said they'll send an update early next week "on compensation".

[Edit] I was too lazy to type it up, so see below for full email. :)

This email just came through form DAZN

First, I would like to extend my sincere apologies for the problems that have impacted our launch.
.
We have been working with our technical team to inform a review of the entire customer experience since we launched. You may have seen the statement we made on this yesterday, but in case you didn’t please see it here.
.
I recognise this has been a frustrating time for many of our subscribers and want to reiterate our commitment to fixing the current issues. In additional to the solutions already identified, we are continuing to explore further ways to improve the experience for those affected.
.
We’ll be reaching out to everyone early next week with more detail on compensation.
.
Once again please accept our heartfelt apologies. From myself and everyone here at DAZN, thank you for your continued patience.
.
Kind regards,
.

So far I'm not impressed. Pre-season things were OK, minor issues and some resolution drops. Week 1 was a disaster, streams cut out multiple times, I had 2 crashes (Android TV, Shield) and tons of buffer/artifacting. Tried flipping around between multiple games and couldn't really enjoy any due to the problems. I never had an issue last season with the in-house NFL stuff, so frustrating why they went this route. I actually don't mind paying more so that I can enjoy my favorite sport.

I'm asking for my money back and an account cancellation, not going to tolerate this all season just so they can issue some 5% digital coupon for next year.

Is there a way to start watching a game from the beginning that is already in progress without seeing what the score is?

nope. i think they're too busy fixing major issues to implement this 2 minute update

here's a tip: i start the game while i cover the score section and yell " lalalalalalala" while i carefully search for the progress bar and move it to beginning...

It was 329.99 as your only option last year. I think this new offer is for everyone.

Really, you can pay for 5 months and get the whole season for $80. That's really like 1/4 the price.
Holy cow, nice find.
