Researched & Written by

Stuck trying to figure out how to get DAZN and AirPlay together?

Don’t worry, this is a common problem! I know how frustrating it can be when you’re trying to watch an exciting box match on DAZN via AirPlay, but can’t seem to get them to work together.

Luckily, you’ve come to the right place for answers.

To get DAZN and AirPlay working together, you’ll need to connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network, select the sports event you want to watch, tap on the AirPlay icon, and choose the device you want to stream to.

Keep reading to learn more about how to get DAZN and AirPlay working together and what to do in case there’s an issue!

#1 Connect Your Devices to the Same Network

Before doing anything else, you’ll need to connect your iOS device to the same network as your Apple TV or compatible Smart TV.

Otherwise, your devices won’t be able to communicate with each other, and DAZN won’t work with AirPlay.

Here’s how to change your Wi-Fi network on iOS devices:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Select “Wi-Fi” from the menu.
  3. Choose the Wi-Fi network that your TV is using.
Connect your devices to the same network
By making sure your devices are connected to the same network, you’ll be able to use AirPlay seamlessly.

Most modems offer two different networks, 2.4 and 5.0 GHz, so you can connect to the one that best meets your needs.

A 2.4 GHz frequency can reach further distances at lower speeds, while a 5.0 GHz connection offers faster speeds at a shorter range.

So, if your devices are close to your modem, I suggest connecting them to the 5.0 GHz network. But, if they’re far away from the modem or router, connecting them to the 2.4 GHz network is recommended.

#2 Select a Sports Event

Once both devices are connected to the same network, you’ll need to open the DAZN app on your iOS device and sign in to your account.

Then, choose the category of sports you’re interested in (boxing, basketball, American football, etc.) from the catalog.

#3 Tap on the AirPlay Icon

To stream the sports event you’ve previously selected, you’ll need to tap on the AirPlay icon.

Recognizing this icon is very simple due to its distinct shape. It’s a rectangle with rounded corners and a triangle (similar to the Wi-Fi icon) at the bottom.

Almost there! When you tapped on the “AirPlay” icon, a list of devices should have appeared on the screen.

The last step to get your DAZN and AirPlay working together is to select the TV where you want to stream the sports event.
