“Fetch’s sizeable subscriber base, along with its comprehensive network of ISP and retail partners offers UFC a unique opportunity to extend our distribution footprint to reach new fans and continue the dramatic growth of UFC’s brand and the sport of MMA in Australia,” Carr said.
Along with access to live UFC events, Fetch subscribers will also be able to watch over 150 hours of UFC studio programming.
“We are extremely proud to welcome UFC to the Fetch family. Today’s announcement represents another major enhancement to our overall content offering, with more to come,” said Scott Lorson, CEO of Fetch TV.
“Led by the phenomenal success of the UFC, the sport of MMA continues to grow in popularity and we are delighted to offer our subscribers an outstanding MMA offering in Australia, and to do so at unprecedented value.”
