UFC PPV Comes to Roku
Make no mistake about it, this is big news. UFC PPVs are a pretty high traffic deal, and coming from UFC which has been pretty harsh against online streaming of their content finally give their fans (without cable) a legitimate way to view it. Should be interesting to see their numbers.
Later today, Roku will make a UFC channel available to owners of their
$99 box. While the highlight is obviously HD pay per view fights
($45ish?), freebie Octagon-related video content will also be available.
Additionally, live event archives will be made available to PPV
subscribers several days after the fact – which worked out well for my
trial of Roku’s UFC service.
