After the problems, Dazn promises improvements in the broadcasting of Serie A matches. The platform, which broadcasts all the matches of the 2021-2022 championship in streaming, has just returned from a ‘complicated’ first day: problems reported by many users, consumers on the foot of war and an upcoming parliamentary question.
“As in every phase of change, and as has already happened in the past, the introduction of new technologies of this magnitude requires a physiological moment of adjustment, a necessary phase to allow further improvements to be made, fully expressing the incredible potential of streaming to advantage of football, sport and the whole country and Dazn’s commitment to this process is absolute and unconditional “. Dazn writes it in a note, expressing “regret” for what happened on the first day of the championship.
“We continue to work, continuing in constant dialogue and collaboration with the Authority and partners, fundamental in this project of unprecedented change, as well as in the development and enhancement of Dazn Edge, the proprietary cache for traffic management and in the further process optimization with global Cdn “.
Dazn explains what happened, underlining that we are facing “an epochal turning point, that of the transition from traditional TV to Oct, made possible thanks to the significant technological investments that Dazn has put in place together with its partners, to encourage digitization, equal European standards, fill the existing gap and make Italy an extremely competitive country also on this front “.
“In recent months, new technologies have been implemented and important changes carried out, against which excellent results have been achieved already at the end of the first day, such as the increase in the cumulative audience compared to previous years, better parameters relating to the user final, greater territorial coverage “.
“This is the context of what happened during the match between FC Internazionale and Genoa (Saturday 21 August), when there was a peak of traffic, limited to a single Cdn, resolved within a few minutes and which had a limited impact on the group of users who were then able to attend the other matches, since the problem was solved quickly. Of this we are obviously sorry, aware of the high value of the Serie A Tim football championship, of the teams involved and of the great passion of all the fans “.
