UFC Plans To Release A New Digital UFC Network As Part Of International Expansion

The UFC has revealed plans to create a digital, subscription based network to broadcast events. The reason for this plan involves the UFC’s international expansion and they will have more events in the future then they had in the past.

The UFC’s Chief Content Officer Marshall Zelaznik went on Ariel Helwani’s The MMA Hour talk about some pof the changes to come and help to explain the UFC’s reasoning to go along with this new venture. Heres what he had to say:

“One of the things we’re trying to do is get hyper focused on all the content that’s being distributed and created for not only the US market, but for the international markets, [We’re] looking at how quickly this whole world of content delivery is changing and making sure that we are instep with what is happening in this space.”

Zelaznik also outlined some of the features of the new network, saying that the price of the subscription service will be similar to the prices of other services, such as Hulu and Netflix. International fight nights will run live on the network, as well as other live content including from US shows.
