Dedicated FAST channel DAZN Women's Sport launches as a free service via Virgin Media.

DAZN has launched FAST channel DAZN Women's Football via Virgin Media.

The 24/7 free channel offers non-stop women's football matches and related programming around the clock, including from the Women's Champions League, Liga F, Saudi Women's Premier League and more.

Last year Virgin added a series of FAST channels directly into its EPG, including dedicated channels for crime, talkshows and even Baywatch, and now they have been complemented by the free sport station.

David Bouchier, chief TV officer at Virgin, said: "The introduction of DAZN's FAST channel on Virgin TV demonstrates our commitment to enhance our entertainment offering and champion women's sport – of which we're proud to be the first Pay TV provider in the UK to offer a FAST channel dedicated to women's football.

"From comedy to sport and everything in between, now more than ever there's something for everyone on Virgin TV."

Hannah Brown, Co-CEO of Women's Sport at DAZN, added: "Partnering with Virgin Media is another way DAZN is ensuring that more people watch top class women's football on the platform of their choice.

"DAZN is committed to growing the audience and value of women's football and is pleased that Virgin have joined us as a premium distribution partner."

DAZN Women's Football is available on Virgin Media channel 554.
