Pay-per-view or PPV has become an effective monetization service since its introduction to cable TV services. Now that users are slowly migrating to online subscription-based streaming services, companies have found a way to include exclusive PPV events in their streaming catalog.
As of now, the online pay-per-view system is still in a broken phase due to the riddling contracts between streaming services and inconsistent price structure.
If you have already cut the cord, then there’s no choice but to embrace the intricacies related to the pay-per-view model. For Firestick users, we have compiled a guide to watch PPV events on Firestick. You can continue reading to learn more.
What is PPV?
PPV or pay-per-view is a paid distribution service, mainly focused on broadcasting sports content. It is mostly reserved for exclusive combat sports events, as well as promotional fights between celebrities.
Similar to how people buy tickets to watch matches in an arena live, viewers at home can pay for such PPV events and watch an exclusive stream of the event on their television. It attracts a lot of viewers and generates additional revenue for the broadcaster too.
Wrestlemania, NBA, Superbowl, NFL are some of the most popular pay-per-view events available. PPV events can be accessed only during their runtime. Once the show has ended, you will no longer have access to the content.
How to Watch PPV On Firestick
We have included some of the most popular streaming services that offer pay-per-view content. The services are also downloadable on for Fire TV devices, so you won’t have to go through any sideloading to install the apps on your Firestick. Also, note that the availability of PPV content depends on where you live, so don’t quote us on that.
We have recommended the Sling TV for quite some time now due to its affordable subscription plans and the vast selection of channels.
Sling TV does offer PPV programming for combat sports events like boxing, MMA, wrestling, and more. Due to the limited offerings, Sling TV doesn’t include in-app-purchases of PPV events in the Sling TV app. Users need to visit sling.com, sign in with their account credentials, open the Account page, and then select Event to see the list of upcoming PPV events available for purchase.
Once users pay for it using a credit/debit card, the PPV event should show up as the Sling PPV channel in the Guide section. The price varies from event to event, mostly hanging around $35-$70.
UFC PPV events are available on ESPN+, thanks to the exclusive partnership with UFC. The upcoming UFC 247 (scheduled on 8th Feb), as well as other UFC Fight Nights and original shows, are available on ESPN+ service.
You can sign up for an ESPN+ subscription for $4.99/month only, or pay for the UFC 247 + Annual Plan bundle for $85. In case you already have an ESPN+ subscription, then you can buy the UFC 247 event for $64.99. Visit plus.espn.com/ufc/ppv for more info.
The PPV events can be accessed directly from the ESPN+ app on Firestick.
DAZN is a sports-focused streaming service that offers both live and on-demand sports content at a low price. There are no PPV events in DAZN, but you can watch several exclusive fights with a single subscription plan.
You can either pay $19.99/month or $99.99/year to stream all the exclusive events without spending any additional charges. You will also find original programs related to sports. Visit dazn.com to check out the list of upcoming fights.
