    What streaming device will you guys be using tonight? I've been watching ESPN+ events on an Apple TV 4K with ethernet (Samsung TV). The quality has been great. War Max!

    I have used my Xbox in the past. I have had worse buffering issues with ESPN+ than with illegal streams. In fact, for Cejudo vs. Dillashaw I had purchased the free ESPN+ trial, but due to inability to maintain a stream I had to switch over to illegal.

    Two thumbs down

    PS: I have giga fiber internet which was fully functional at the time. So it wasn’t me.

    I had fight pass on Xbox One before ESPN+ and it was always crap. My Apple TV has been consistent. Buffering on Xbox isn't a hardware issue. I suspect it has to do with the developer (I don't know). Apple is a good streaming platform.

    Nice promo. Short and to the point. Naturally, I resent it. ;)

    I'm glad to hear this. Not that your having trouble but that I'm not the only one whose had issues. Signed up for the free trial, wouldn't stream so I cancelled it. Tried again a week later paying for it and same result. Plenty of speed on my internet and don't have trouble streaming anything else. Just the fights. Called customer service and they don't have a clue. Oh well, guess I'm a former fan of UFC. Never missed an event on Fox but I've missed plenty since they've changed.

    I've watched it on my Oculus and my Xbox. Both worked fine.

    Why not try a different device that actually works? The age of streaming is here to stay. Sooner or later, word will get out on which devices are good and which are garbage.

    That's good. Video apps shouldn't buffer on Xbox, especially when it's marketed as more than just a gaming console.

    Have fun watching the main event at 4:00 am:D Besides anybody with the ability to use Google can figure out how to stream for free in HD these days if you are trying to gloat about having it cost less.

    Well, they're making a lot of money now and the sport is still growing. Most people stream something. Everything is moving that way. Like everything that came before, people will get with the program. I'm sure there were those who complained when paid cable became a thing.
