UFC 200 to offer 4K PPV stream
July 9, 2016
The Verge reports that UFC 200 will be available in 4K making it the first organization to offer its streaming PPV in this technology.
The 4K availability is limited to those in the US and Canada in ultra HD resolution on select Sony TVs. People wanting to take advantage of this will need the UFC’s app, a 2015 or 2016 Sony 4K Ultra HD TV and pay the requisite price. Of course, the PPV Saturday will also be available via normal PPV distribution methods as well as UFC.TV.
The UFC’s partner, NeuLion, will be providing the 4K stream.
The UFC has been an early-adapter when it comes to technology and this foray in to 4K will be watched by other leagues and entertainment companies as how this will be executed and the demand for such a product.
