Watching UFC on DirecTV


This year, the Ultimate Fighting Championship scheduled no less than 35 events, including 14 pay-per-view championship events. And like past years, DirecTV will carry all UFC pay-per-view fights for their residential customers and, with the help of Joe Hand Promotions, provide the signal for thousands of commercial establishments throughout the country. Plus, UFC on DirecTV includes many free UFC events, such as Fight Night specials and replays, for both residential and commercial customers.

UFC Pay-Per-View for Residential Customers

For residential customers, ordering pay-per-view UFC on DirecTV is as easy as texting.  Order from anywhere by texting “SPORTS” to 223-322 and follow the prompts.

UFC Pay-Per-View for Commercial Customers

Other UFC Fights: Residential & Commercial Customers

There’s more than pay-per-view UFC on DirecTV, especially since the UFC and Fox Sports Media Group agreed on a seven-year rights agreement back in 2011.  Free events can be seen on a weekly basis on Fox, Fox Sports 1 (Channel 219 HD/SD) and Fox Sports 2 (Channel 618 HD/SD), including The Ultimate Fighter, the longest-running sports reality show on television. To find your local Fox channel on DirecTV, visit their channel guide.

As a tip for commercial customers, Joe Hand Promotions encourages commercial establishments to dedicate at least one television to the free UFC events to help build their customer base for pay-per-view events. Free programs include the pay-per-view preliminary fights usually televised on Fox Sports 1 prior to the main event.
