UFC extend with TSN and RDS in Canada

Pay-television broadcasters TSN and RDS have agreed a new multi-year extension of its media-rights deal with the UFC.

The Bell Media-owned broadcasters will have exclusive rights to 22 UFC Fight Night main cards and late preliminaries, as well as preliminary fights ahead of UFC’s 12 pay-per-view events. Bell Media has announced it will look to exploit coverage across its linear and social platforms.

TSN will have exclusive English-language content, whilst RDS will have exclusive French-language coverage.

The deal with TSN and RDS will allow the UFC to expand its OTT subscription service Fight Pass offering in Canada with eight exclusive UFC Fight Night events and all Early Preliminary fights from each UFC live event.
