I had it early on in Canada; it was great, they could and did show pretty much whatever non-UFC content that they wanted. Once Zuffa bought Pride and started gobbling up mma fight organization libraries right left and center TFN was damaged in much the same fashion as youtube was as a place to watch fights. I haven't subscribed in a few years now and I don't really recommend it.

This is unsolicited and to the best of my knowledge no one from Fight Network posts here - my unbiased opinion is that Fight Network is freakin awesome. I already have a Neulion technology membership at UFC.tv and am definitely going to add this.
