Fight Pass can go suck my dick.

I'm going to pirate the shit out of this because I have no other way of accessing it.

Foxtel can also suck my dick.

Australians are really getting fucked over with Fight Pass, I get that I'll have access to old fights and what not but that's basically it, I've been barred from 80% of the live content because of stupid broadcasting agreements. Defeats the whole purpose of this thing.

I hear ya brother. I'm in Canada, and the first time I get blacked out I'm cancelling FightPass. Nothing says "fuck you, you're just a customer and I've got your money, what are you going to do about it" like blackouts. NHL hockey is the same thing in my area... if you want to watch the Leafs, you better pony up for cable because everything else is blackouts. And heaven forbid you'd like to follow the games of an "out of market team". These broadcasters are creating their own demise by forcing would-be customers to stream their shit.

I unsubscribed from fight pass before it cost money specifically for this reason.

I'm sure something like strongvpn or vypervpn would do the job to get around the Australia broadcast restrictions. Phone Post 3.0

I must admit i didnt expect events to be blacked out all the time.  I probably will cancel until things change.

Just sign up to fight pass, it's $10 a month. Problem solved, plus it's still in the free trial mode Phone Post 3.0

We're talking about Fight Pass, good chunk of content is blacked out for us Australians.

RE: Foxtel, I haven't even user a normal TV in years, not going to shell out money for Foxtel when I can get everything online.

But it's free on sportsnet 360 @ 3:00pm frien, why pay for fight pass?

We get perks as Canadians...

It's unfortunate for those that don't have foxtel. As far as I know I've been able to watch most fight nights and similar on fuel or Fox. The fight pass set up for Australians is stupid. Why would you have to pay for an event that's already free? Phone Post 3.0
