Watching UFC on DirecTV

If you are a DirecTV commercial customer, ordering UFC Pay-Per-Views is a seamless experience. Have a bar full of people asking you to show the event? No problem. Your Joe Hand Promotions representative can activate your signal in minutes, even after the event begins!

Please call 1-800-557-4263 to order. The PPV event can’t be purchased through your remote. 

Channel Info

Most UFC Pay-Per-View events air on DirecTV Channel 123 (HD) and Channel 124 (SD) at 10 p.m. ET. Free preliminary fights are typically on Fox Sports 1, beginning at 8 p.m.. If there is a change, Joe Hand Promotions will alert you by email and social media.


Unlike a residential purchase, there’s no set fee for commercial customers buying the UFC on DirecTV. It depends on your location’s Fire Occupancy Certificate. Please note that if you have a past due balance with DirecTV, they will not authorize you for a Pay-Per-View event. You can reach DirecTV’s customer service at 1-888-200-4388.

Testing Procedure

Don’t wait until a crowd arrives! If you’ve ordered in advance, you can check your signal as early as Saturday morning. If you see any box with ordering information on the screen, it means you are NOT activated. Call Joe Hand Promotions immediately and we will resend the signal.

If you see a looping highlight screen (pictured below) or any UFC programming you ARE activated for the event and need to do nothing else.
