    There's definitely a lot more money in the NFL compared to the ufc, and a lot more viewers and traffic as well so I wonder how the NFL streams never experience a lot of lag like PPV streams

    Nobody gives a flying shit about that NFL game. It´s like WWE with a ball.

    Because super bowl is on network TV, so all the money comes from advertising, which you watch whether on tv or streaming. They have no problem with as many eyes as possible watching regardless of the method.

    UFC ppv gets their money from the ppv purchase itself, only a small amount comes from the advertising. So they put effort into blocking streaming efforts, thereby making the streamers seek out spammy adverts to pay for their extra efforts, which equals poor stream quality for viewers.

    You'll notice that streams of UFC fox fights often stream in high quality, unlike the PPV, for this reason.
