James Rushton, chief executive officer of online streaming service DAZN, has apologised for glitches in the system during its launch on the opening day of the J.League season on 25 February, The Japan Times reported on 20 March.

The British-based Perform Group bought the domestic broadcasting rights for J.League last year in a 10-year deal worth ¥210bn. The system saw time lags, pauses in broadcasts and some subscribers received an email saying their subscriptions had been cancelled.
