We’ve Gone Balls Up…With Alex Horne!

Posted by | June 16, 2016 | NEWS


Our very own podcast is here! Better known for his work on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and The Horne Section, Alex will bring listeners the big news from on and off the pitch at this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament.

He’ll be answering the all important questions like ‘which player looks most like a ghost this week?’ and ‘which team has the best beards?’ as he takes a tongue-in-cheek look at Euro 2016 in five weekly instalments. Guests on the show will include comedians Carly Smallman and Michael Legge, and football writer Philippe Auclair.

Deezer added live premium sports to the service last year building on its existing music, talk and entertainment offerings, with over 40 million music tracks and 40,000 podcasts now available on the service.

“This marks our first foray into original talk content for the UK market, and following suit from our successful tongue-in-cheek TV advertising we are sticking with the comedy route with our Balls Up series” said Christian Harris, Deezer’s Managing Director UK and Ireland. “We are excited to see what football fans think, and will look to create more original content in the future based on different passion points.”

Football on Deezer can now be found on the homepage and in the apps section, and is available to free (ad supported) and Premium users.
