UFC.TV gets In-App event replay purchases
Mobile-oriented subscription networks like MLB.TV have found their way on sports fansí devices everywhere in recent times, and have spurred many a franchise to embrace this rising video streaming trend. The UFC (The Ultimate Fighting Championship) has been a huge proponent of that movement, with a video content app launched sometime ago, which made fight fans very happy by enabling them to view past and upcoming fight nights and pay-per-views, along with information of the fighters.
Since its release, we have seen a fair amount of features make the way into the app, with a comment system, social sharing options, and eventually the heavily-anticipated integration of Zuffa LLCís $9.99 network subscription, UFC Fight Pass, made easy through Apple iTunesí or Google Playís in-app purchases. Now, as stated on the official iTunes store, they have now added event replay purchases into the in-app purchasing mix with an update.
The great thing for those pining for past fight events is that a UFC Fight Pass subscription wonít be required for the purchases of these replays, which helps fans from countries where Fight Pass isnít available, but do be prepared to fork out at least $9.99 per video. For those not willing to spend, there are a select few free replays to be had so the fight goodness keeps on rolling. You will not be able to save fights onto your devices but that is where UFC Fight Pass would come in, allowing some of the more high-profile events to be always accessible for streaming on the app.
A search function to enable comprehensive and intuitive backtracking is also in this update, along with bug fixes for the stability problems users have had, so a more stable, complete, and thus sublime experience awaits.
