So what the hell is it?
hey nerfherder. slap some keys and report on the mayhem signing
tv channel maybe?
probably yet ANOTHER attempt at pay for video and streaming live events. zuffa has tried this multiple times and failed each time miserably. the first attempt was 7-8 years ago. they charged suckers like $30 to watch an event live, and it simply didnt work. i dont know if people ever got thier money back. then some years ago they tried to push some ufc gold club, which was another pay membership steaming video service which sucked fucking balls and was a miserable failure.
maybe theyll get it right this time. but i doubt it.
Let’s hope that it is either a) a premium membership option that allows you to get a discount on UFC PPV events or b) an actual channel on either youtube or on the roku player so people can watch old matches without having to pirate them. I’m leaning towards the latter due to the lawsuit they threw at Google a couple months ago. The UFC knew that nothing would really come of the legal action, but it set precedent that no one should be posting their content to drive traffic.
I’d sign up for either option above. If there is a third, I don’t see it. But I’d love to be enlightened.
ufc.tv is great! I watch the pay per view on there. its fantastic on my 27 inch mac. it streams great. way better than UFC vault. I really like being able to pick what camera to watch replays in. I watch the fight once live then go back through the grappleing moves and significant stike in multiple angles.
I can’t imagine what this is though?
You’re a shill and a half.
free streams yo.
Dana White is announcing his retirement. Scott Coker is taking over his functions.
no really ufc.tv is great!!!
Probably what shillyer is talking about. You can have options to use different camera angles and pick audio from the fighters corners or listen to the usual commentators. Have a pencil handy.
I still don’t trust streaming enough to actually pay for it.
