Now, sports fans can view Canelo's fights and the deep Golden Boy Promotions stable for a low monthly subscription cost.
The lucrative deal comes on the heels of HBO recently announcing its plan to pull the plug on its boxing coverage by the end of 2018, forcing Alvarez and others to seek new broadcast homes. "He's extremely happy", promoter Oscar De La Hoya told ESPN after Alvarez signed the dotted line.
DAZN now have exclusive United States rights to Alvarez's next 11 fights after his contract with American broadcaster HBO - who are leaving boxing - expired. "That was the most important thing, more important than what I am making".
De La Hoya is expected to announce the deal at Wednesday's press conference in NY to promote Alvarez's December 15 return at New York's Madison Square Garden when he moves up in weight to challenge secondary WBA super middleweight titleholder Rocky Fielding in the first bout of his new DAZN deal.
Whilst Alvarez will still fight under the Golden Boy banner, his connection to DAZN could allow for fights with English fighters signed with Hearn.
The reported value of the deal would top the previous most-valuable contract - the $325m 13-year deal of baseball star Giancarlo Stanton in 2014.
"This is only from my hard work", Alvarez told ESPN shortly after signing the deal at 1 a.m. ET at a hotel in Times Square.

A representative from Apple, however, confirmed the watches do not have fingerprint entry features, CNN reported on Saturday. Khashoggi, a prominent critic of Riyadh and a U.S. resident, disappeared on October 2 after visiting the Saudi consulate.
The 28-year-old is set to fight Britain's Rocky Fielding on December 15 but he still has eyes on putting right that loss, the only one in 53 career fights.
"It is very important for me to give the fans the biggest fights and the most important fights, and I promise you I will always do that".
Alvarez said he has confidence DAZN will succeed.
Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) beat Gennady "GGG" Golovkin in a majority decision in September to become the WBC, WBA, Lineal and Ring Magazine Middleweight champion.
"I've always liked a challenge, and this is yet another challenger in my career", Alvarez said in a statement.
He is the most high-profile fighter to sign with the platform, after Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing agreed a $1bn deal earlier in the summer.
