Anything has to be better than the shite ESPN churn out, Often missing ends of championship fights, no MMA live shows anymore, few Countdown shows, the Channel is a joke

It used to be goodish for it, but I agree, the UK ESPN channel is gone to crap. BT Sport though? I dunno about that...

I'm with sky an have the full sport package and apparently it'll cost another £7 a month once its out to have included in that. No idea how much without it, also the guy on the phone said its a staged roll out so its looking like it'll be available in the south a few months before the north.

I'm thinking it'll be just like ESPN and Santanna before that.

(but the guy did say nothing has been confirmed yet so it could still all change)

£7 is better that the £12 ESPN plucks my eyeballs out for. It Sounds about right, the great North/South divide , looks like internet downloads or my buddy the "DVD" man for £3 an event then

Officials said they'll announce exact details of the UFC deal in the coming days, though it'll include additional taped content, such as news/insider programs and the UFC's varied fight-highlights shows. It also will include originally produced programming specific to the region.



This is good to know.

I have Just watched the trailers for BT Sport on sky channel 413.

It is free for anyone who has BT broadband and £12 per month for those who dont want to change Broadband suppliers. You het BT sports 1&2 as well as ESPN ,You also get free streaming for your pc/mac and viewing apps for your tablet/smart phone. It looks an impressive package with a huge range of sporting events, sports documentaries, Sport based films and MMA magazine shows etc. I am looking forward to this now
