I'm now a full subscriber to UFC Fight Pass.
I was certainly not impressed with the "extensive" fight library during the free trial but I figured they were holding some stuff back till it was a paid service.
Then on Monday I tried to watch Kim vs Hathaway, only to be told it would require an extra $10.
I assumed this was a mistake and emailed tech support.
This was their reply

"Hi

with the fight pass subscription you will not have access to the TUF events, PPV or PPV prelims you also do not have access to the
Gustafson vs Manuwa event. please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.

So in Australia you basically get nothing for your money. I assume the issues are similar in NZ where their licensing deal with SkyTV is pretty much the same.

All the sudden streaming behind a proxy seems like a less complicated option.

 

This shit is getting confusing.

There's heaps of best of pride eps.... The whole service is a joke. The fight library is hardly what was promised. You can catch 2 affliction cards. I haven't seen a single Strikeforce or WEC fight in my searches. I don't think the U.S. has this problem because these cards won't be shown on tv there. Here and in NZ just about all cards other then PPV get shown on paid tv services. I suspect they signed a too open ended licensing agreement here a couple years ago and Fight Pass is suffering because of it.

I mainly can't believe how casually they told me I get nothing.
And the email looks like a 12 year old wrote it.

So what do we get in Australia? Just whatever bits of the library they put up, no fight nights or TUF? I don't think the US version is all that bad but it certainly seems like a waste of money for us. Phone Post 3.0

Meanwhile the WWE network has a ton of content and all of the PPVs will be aired on there live.

Do you guys at least get an "Ultimate Dana White"?

Great pack hey. And it's often updated. Mixed with downloading UFC weigh ins, pressers and scrums from YouTube it creates a great media package that I can watch at any time and most importantly is backed up on my own drive. It's a real fight pass. Phone Post 3.0

So basically your saying being surrounded by great white sharks, and having more deadly animals then any other nation isn't the only reason it sucks to live in Australia? Phone Post 3.0
