Less than a month after announcing Bruno Rocha as the new executive vice president in Brazil, DAZN announced that Jamie Horowitz will assume the same position within the North American streaming platform. The executive, who has toured on ESPN and Fox Sports, has been a consultant to DAZN since last year and will report directly to CEO John Skipper.

Horowitz’s appointment comes at a time when DAZN seeks to broaden its programming in the US and move beyond boxing, soccer and baseball coverage with Major League Baseball (MLB). According to the Hollywood Reporter newspaper, the executive will have an estimated budget of $ 12 million to invest in additional content.
“In his new role, Jamie will oversee all business content in North America, including live production, original programming, social content, editorial, and scheduling, focusing on using content to acquire and retain subscribers,” said John Skipper.
Currently, DAZN operates in both the United States and Canada in North America. The streaming platform is still present in Germany, Austria, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Japan, and Switzerland.
