I don't want to be an argumentative little bitch, but if you don't have Foxtel, it's Foxtel that's fucked. There are always other options... can't stop the Internet. In spite of what Dana or anyone else may tell you, they *do* need your dollar.

onandon - 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.
It's on tv? Hence the blackout online! Get foxtel Phone Post 3.0

Foxtel isn't the answer here, the whole reason for a platform like Fight Pass was to bypass all this bullshit but we're getting straight up screwed.

Broadcast rights for foxtel are going to greatly devalue fight pass as most the events will be blacked out here! The main reason I kept it this month was for that fight card haha Phone Post 3.0

Thanks for the contribution dickhead. If you want, send me a PM and I'll let you shout me a couple months free since you're a baller ^__~

It's 2014, the reason the UFC went for the Fight Pass thing was to try and get people away from streaming illegal content. All the UFC does is fuck themselves over because anyone without Foxtel (like my poor self) will be forced to stream something they would otherwise be willing to pay money to see.

Again, fuck Foxtel - I don't even bother with free to air TV anymore, I can get everything online INSTANTLY, whether I want to pay for it or not. I'm willing to pay for UFC content, but the way they have it set up for me right now makes it more valuable to illegally stream content than to bother to pay a monthly subscription.

Aussies cannot view these here ultimate fight nights on fight pass because they have an exclusive deal with foxtel and fuel tv.

You used to be able to buy these shows via ufc.tv for $10 but since fight pass has come in they're all blacked out Phone Post 3.0

I would watch most cards at pubs with friends, some I would need to stream (eg. smaller cards friends would have no interest in, had to watch solo) and would buy PPVs if they were worthy.

Something like Fight Pass appeals to me, if it offers me easy (high quality) access to live content. Well, the idea appeals to me, but the reality is pretty shitty.

Fact is, that how it stands right now, it's much easier for me to just stick to stream sites. When I use Fight Pass, I don't know what part of a card I'm going to be able to watch, or whether I'll be able to watch it all. It's frustrating.

The issue is that people are paying $10 a month and it's not giving them free cards.  That in more cases than not, means that fightpass is largely pointless in Australia.

 

People arent going to shell out for foxtel (if they dont already have it) for just the UFC.

Why be a cunt for?

Foxtel is turd, yes you might get the UFC in HD, but that's the only thing, right now, that I'd ever want to have from Foxtel. Doesn't justify me spending 50+ a month for some bullshit bundle of channels I'll have no interest in. I watch EVERYTHING online now, the TV (Foxtel included) is filled with shit.

I'm guessing you guys are over 30, so whatever. Do what you gotta do but really, but Fight Pass should give Aussies a good marjoirty of access to non-PPV cards, not small chunks they decide not to air on Foxtel.

Don't be dicks about it because you have access to something many people don't.

All I'm trying to do is point out that us Aussies who don't have Foxtel, are getting a raw deal with the Fight Pass. Not only is a shit deal for us, it forces possible consumers to rely on illegal streams to watch content that they would otherwise gladly pay for.

My point is valid, Foxtel can suck dick and you dickheads who are trying to be smart about it need to fuck off.
