Yes I know what you're thinking, thats FKING ILLEGAL anyway.
But hear me out, where I live (Europe), UFC shows are not broad casted, nor is TUF.
Being a longtime fan, I've always HAD to download TUF and the events, just to be able to watch it. This has nothing to do with not willing to pay for an event or whatever.
So I've been using usenet for doing this since I can remember, the events would be uploaded the same night the event is held, so I can watch them the next day, before visiting all the MMA sites and getting spoiled.
Lately I found it weird that a lot of UFC videos have been getting the error 'article not found', while the index website clearly said the collection was complete. So after some research, it turns out that almost all usenet providers now actively make all UFC content inaccessible within minutes after uploading.
Now....having abandoned Torrents a decade ago, I gave it another try....no other options left, but first thing I ran into was the download speed of 0.5kbs ....yes that would take me a week if not more to download an event.
So I guess its just a matter of time before the 'other ' production companies start blocking the TV shows I watch from usenet as well...and usenet will be deemed useless.
So now I have no way to follow UFC events anymore...except for reading the results, which is not very fun.
Oh, and to make matters worse, I'm still pissed about this re-design on BE.
Yes I'm a sad angry criminal....
