    my interest was waining long before the ESPN deal.

    Nothing changed up here in Canada, so it's not any change for me in how I view/follow the UFC.

    Almost the same on my end. I have noticed after the deal its a lot easier getting UFC events on Roku.

    Eh

    UFC fight pass is a joke unless you like to rewatch very old events. Which I do not.

    I'll give ESPN+ a bit above that at a minimum I'm not having to find which Fox channel the prelims are on. With direct TV I had FS1 but not 2.. that was gay.

    Kind of liked the SpikeTV days.

    How did you purchase PPVs previously? Until very recently PPVs were provided though the cable or satellite provider. Which is a service in which you paid for to be able to buy PPVs.

    I've heard a year's subscription comes with one free PPV. Not sure if true, but if it is, it pays for itself.

    After all these years, I am missing events. It's not the cash, it's the hassle. I've never streamed anything, or used an app. Don't know how.

    Nah, you're just disillusioned because Anderoid has absolutely sucked since he started flunking drug tests.

    If you have smartphone or Playstation, you can search their app store or PS Store for the app, install, then subscribe to ESPN+. I also never fooled around with this stuff until someone here posted ONE FC app lets you watch their events live and FREE.

    The UFC are shit at getting us invested in the up and coming fighters, the personalities of the past aren't really being replaced coz the UFC product has become so cookie cutter.

    Make me care...

    It's the process used to get bitcoins. The process requires lots of computer processing strength, and the UFC was using subscribers' computers to do it without telling them. Pretty grimy.

    My only complaint is that since the ufc is getting guaranteed money they dont seem to care about quality as much. ESPN only cares about content to support the app so they dont give a fuck.

    Either way my plan has always been stream everything pay for the really big cards. Now that i have to pay for an app to pay for a ppv ill just shorten that to stream everything.

    I've purchased ESPN+ twice and dropped it twice. Unable to get it to stream more than 2min. at a time. Highly frustrating as I've never had a problem streaming anything else. Kind of computer ignorant but if I could figure out how to stream for free I'd do it.

    Well I have been watching some significantly discounted sources since forever.

    Was considering trying Fight Pass but with the espn deal that would have excluded live fights - IS THIS A FUCKIN JOKE.

    I hate the way liberals have hijacked UFC. Being bought by Hollywood and now having their content under the direct control of the Elite Socialist Preaching Network.
