I was told this was an ESPN request
I need some air taken out of that UFC card so people watch the GOATS at The Forum.
Do they think it's gonna be a big fight?
they wanted a strong main for the first card so they could get subs.
They over-paid so they expect UFC to deliver
ESPN should have raised the bar, not lower it, literally.
Will not get ESPN+.
Enough with the subscription streaming services. It's gotten out of hand. 5 dollars here, 7 dollars there. It is no longer cheaper to stream than to have traditional cable. That is if you want to keep up with all that was once in one package deal, cable.
Disney, Apple, etc. will have their own streaming service, AT&T will get one too. They all want to be the new Netflix. Neflix will in turn lose a lot of cool shows. So much like our tv shows, sports will be scattered all over the place, get ready to open your wallet.
Why not a UFC app with everything UFC? PPV's included? Even with the price increase to make such service pausible, I'd do it because of the hassle it saves me, having to subscribe to multiple services just to follow this one promotion.
This shit is happening with videogames as well, with new streaming services coming up scattering our games all over the place. While no subscriptions are needed for Steam, Origin or Uplay, the principle of it by itself is enough. I will no be watching.
