ONE Championships eyes U.S. streaming deal
March 16, 2017
The Singapore-based ONE Championships is near a streaming deal which will make it easier for U.S. fans to watch its fights.
Currently, it costs $9.99 per event on the promotion’s web site to watch ONE Championship events.
ONE spokesperson, Loren Mack, indicated that the company will still have events onllne but the new deal will make it easier for fans in the U.S. to watch.
The promotion is based primarily in Asia and has a vast following there than in North American where big MMA diehards follow the sport. For more on the promotion, we interviewed CEO Victor Cui a while back about the company.
The new deal will likely make it more accessible for fans here in the U.S. which leads me to believe that it will partner with someone with an existing over the top platform. The plan is a sign of growth for the company and a hope to open up more fans to the sport via a streaming deal.
