Yes, way to expensive. Watered down cards aren’t helping with PPV numbers.
>Paying for PPV
Not all PPVs are worth the price.
The price should vary depending on the card, not that that will ever happen.
Most of the people who already bought ppvs will still buy them at 65 bucks. At this point, only hardcores spend money on these watered down cards, might as well take from them as much as they can. Thank god i can watch them for free.
they've priced me out already. i was barely hanging in there at $50, $65 is too much. especially (as mentioned) if the cards are watered down.
if fight pass was $25 a month, and included ppv's, I'd pay for that no problem.
how does the price relate to whether it's about the fighters or the ufc??
If it were half price, I would actually spend more money on UFC events. As a fan of MMA, there are a lot of times where a mediocre card is still watchable. $20-$25 is no big deal if the card is shit.
lol @ anyone who actually pays $65 to see these neutered cards
with the kind of quality they're putting out i'd say $30 would be a better gig and even that is stretching it
Guess since numbers are down the ones still buying will pay the extra
i don't remember the last time I bought a ufc card. And this is coming from a hardcore fan
Because even though they put out shitty cards they value the ufc higher than any fighter or stacked card. So the talent on the card isn't going to affect the price.
Your question is making me think you didn't read the op?
The fighters on a card don’t impact the price of the ppv. They impact the amount of people willing to pay that price. The ufc knows this. It’s not about valuing the ufc over the fighters. I don’t even know what that means.
I could stomach 60 for top cards and 25-30 for lower cards. They wont do that though. If someone buys fightpass, move it all to there and charge 20 a month. I would probably do that but even that is pretty high.
How much is YouTube charging these days. I used to buy cards from there because it was 10 bucks cheaper. Now I tend to go to bars.
I mean you are worried about their business model but I think the people who run that are extremely intelligent and its an easy fix if they make a mistake.. roll it back. They can't do anything to cause any huge issue to them. Try the higher price and see if you make more money overall there or at the lower price. That is always the balance business takes. Whether they should be going up or down or whatever shouldn't really concern you. If you are willing to pay for the product then pay for it. If not do like everyone else and stream it.
I don't think we need to start putting on our business man hats and trying to figure out which way the UFC can be most profitable. There obviously isnt enough info to figure that out. Just because the UFC has had some declining ratings does NOT mean that necessarilly raising prices will drop profits. I think its best to not worry about things like this because end of the day the UFC is extremely healthy and fine and not going anywhere. There will be future megastars and new megafights and ratings boosts. Its the nature of the beast.
It's insane how much the UFC is milking out of the US fans.
Here in Sweden we pay $32/month which is about the same price that you pay for top soccer leagues and other sport channels. UFC events are usually at 3 am though, so it's on-demand for a couple of days afterwards.
I Have no problem paying for 205 214 217 type cards. But no goddamn way would I pay for a fight night card just because they slap a title fight on it at the same price.
Should be like a Gold/Silver/Bronze type card price... would never expect it from these greedy pricks.
Just like a sporting event usually costs more when the top teams come into town vs when the bottom feeder teams role in.
Really love to see one of these patched together cards do less then 100k.
I just pay 10 euro a month and get to watch m all for "free" here in the Netherlands
Its on cable or premium TV everywhere outside the US, Canada and Australia/New Zealand.
