How to see DAZN well
As widely emphasized in this post, DAZN has been progressively improved and now manages to ensure a smooth and clear streaming on all compatible devices. However, it is necessary to "do one's part", making sure to comply with the technical requirements necessary for the correct use of the contents and putting into practice some precautions, such as those illustrated below.
- Use LAN cable instead of Wi-Fi - if you watch DAZN on your TV or computer, I strongly recommend that you opt for a wired Internet connection (via Ethernet cable), instead of Wi-Fi: in this way, you will be able to make the most of the available bandwidth and avoid the problems of loss of signal and interference typical of wireless networks.
- Avoid network congestion - having too many devices connected to the network, especially if they perform "stressful" activities, such as downloading content from the Internet or online gaming, can degrade the quality of the streaming of a service like DAZN. Before starting the vision of an event on DAZN, therefore, enter the administration panel of your router, check the list of devices connected to the network and make sure that there are no "stressful" activities, such as those described above.
- Update apps and devices - using the latest version of the DAZN app and installing updates of the operating system in use on your device are two things that help ensure a fluid and clear view of the contents offered by the platform.
- Set up your account in advance - another piece of advice I would like to give you is to never reduce yourself at the last moment (ie a few hours from the start of the event of your interest) to activate your DAZN subscription, change your password or payment method. Acting in the right time will avoid any possible risk of losing your favorite team's match!
For more details about the procedures to be put into practice to optimize the vision of DAZN and more technical descriptions about the operation of the service (to understand, for example, how it differs from the services of films and TV series on demand), I refer you to my tutorial on how to see DAZN well.
