Roku Gets Live UFC PPVs

Posted Tue May 18, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

It all starts on May 29th, with Rampage vs Evans.

Roku and the UFC have signed a multi-year agreement that will bring UFC Pay-Per-View events to Roku players across the country. It's a big coup for Roku, and for non-cable entertainment solutions.

"The Roku player is capable of delivering amazing live events, in HD, on the TV," said Roku CEO Anthony Wood. That's a big deal for UFC fans, especially if they're hoping to cut their cable any time soon.

UFC President Dana White says the UFC is always looking for a new approach. "Roku is another way for fans to get more UFC and watch all of the UFC events live and in HD," he said.

The UFC channel adds to an impressive Roku lineup, and it's definitely a big move for the company.
