UFC pay-per-view fights will now only be available with an ESPN+ subscription
Mixed martial arts fans are going to need an ESPN+ subscription if they don’t already have one.
UFC has expanded a deal with ESPN which will make all of its pay-per-view events exclusive to the Disney-owned sports network’s ESPN+ service. Starting with UFC 236 on April 13, an ESPN+ subscription will be required to purchase a UFC PPV event.
The MMA promoter originally signed a five-year, $1.5 billion TV rights deal with ESPN less than one year ago. The expanded deal brings UFC’s popular PPV events, as well as multiplatform rights, to the Disney-owned network through 2025.
