With more than 42 live events a year, UFC brings you the best mma action on the planet. Roku TVs are some of the most popular devices in the world. Here’s how you can watch UFC through ESPN+ and UFC Fight Pass wherever you are.
HOW TO WATCH UFC 249 THROUGH ESPN+ ON YOUR Roku TV IN THE UNITED STATES
1) Head to the home screen on your Roku by pressing the “HOME” button on your Roku remote.
2) Scroll down and select “STREAMING CHANNELS” to access the Roku Channel Store. This is where you can then find the channels (the same as apps) that you want to download onto your device.
3) Next, you want to find the ESPN channel. You can do this by selecting one of the sub-categories–“MOST POPULAR”, “TOP FREE”, “SPORTS”, etc.–and then finding it within those lists, or you can simply select “SEARCH CHANNELS” and then type in “ESPN.”
4) Once you’ve found the ESPN channel, select “ADD CHANNEL” (At this point, if you opted to create a Roku account PIN when setting up you’re device, you’ll need to enter it). This will install the channel, which you can find on the home screen.
Note) You can also add the ESPN channel via the Roku website right here. You’ll need to sign into your Roku account, then add the ESPN channel and it should soon appear on your Roku device. If it doesn’t immediately show up on your device, go to your Roku and select Settings>System>System Update>Check Now.
5) On your Roku device, open the now-installed ESPN channel and then sign into the ESPN+ account you used to purchase the PPV. You can do that by selecting the settings icon (the little gear symbol) in the upper-right corner, then “ACCOUNT INFORMATION”, then “ESPN ACCOUNT”.
6) Go back to the “FEATURED” tab and select the UFC 249 main card to start watching the fights starting at 10.00PM ET.
