You can confirm the switch under “My Account” and “Subscription Details.”
How to cancel DMM×DAZN Houdai:
Open the member page and proceed with the cancellation process by selecting “Cancel the current plan in use.” Please note that canceling does not immediately terminate your access to the service. During the “Cancellation in process” period, you can continue to use the service as usual, and cancellation can also be canceled if needed.

- DAZN account is temporarily suspended.
- Using DAZN for docomo account.
- Subscribed to DAZN’s annual plan (monthly payments).
If you have a DAZN for docomo account, regardless of your subscription status, you cannot register or link it. Please pause or terminate your current contract, obtain a DAZN account, and then proceed with DMM×DAZN HODAI registration.

Notes on DMM×DAZN Houdai:
- DAZN Annual Plan is cheaper than DMM×DAZN Houdai:
While DMM×DAZN Houdai offers a better deal compared to subscribing to DMM Premium and DAZN Standard individually, the DAZN Annual Plan (paid upfront) is about 480 yen cheaper per month. If you only watch sports, it is recommended to choose the DAZN Annual Plan.
- Switching from DAZN invalidates remaining viewing time:
If you switch from DAZN to DMM×DAZN Houdai, the remaining viewing time from your previous plan becomes invalid. For example, if you switch within the first 1-2 months of the annual plan, you would effectively end up paying 30,000 yen for only a few months. It is advisable to switch close to the end of your contract period.
- Limited interest for sports-only or anime-only viewers:
If your viewing preferences are limited to sports or anime only, the DMM×DAZN Houdai plan may not offer significant benefits. It becomes more cost-effective to subscribe to separate plans: DAZN Standard for sports and DMM Premium for anime. The appeal of the DMM×DAZN Houdai plan lies in its affordable price for accessing both sports and anime content.
