Roku Adds Live Pay-per-view UFC Fights

The centerpiece of the deal is streaming live pay-per-view events in HD, but the UFC channel will also offer an archive of classic fights, training and countdown videos, un-aired prelims from the live shows, special event shows, and more.

Cord-cutting fans of the UFC rejoice! The Ultimate Fighting Championship has recently inked a deal with Roku to stream live UFC fights right to your Roku box. Much of the content will be free or you’ll need to sign up for a UFC Vault subscription ($60 for six months). Individual fights can be purchased  for $2 each and pay-per-view fights or on-demand archives of recent events will be $45.

Here’s how to get started with the UFC Roku Channel.

Tip of the hat to Thomas for sending this in.

    This is a great movie by Roku. Live Sporting Events is the holy grail of services that is not made readily available for those who have canceled cable and look solely to the Internet for their entertainment. Does anyone have any feedback on the quality of the feed?

    Good stuff.  We JUST bought two Roku devices on Amazon in their Gold Box.  I think we’ll hook everything up and get it running and give it a month or so before we cut the cable for good.  I want to be able to evaluate how our watching changes.  

    The Roku will be on two smaller TV’s.  I’ve got a first generation Apple TV on my big 60 incher in the living room.  What I’d like to do is to be able to stream all the media that I have stored on external hard drives to my ATV and to the Roku when they get here.  

    There’s gotta be a way right?
