MMA PPV Events for $4?!?!
Below is a brief summary of what this "idea" is all about. Within a week or two I will post more specific info, including the website, forum, sign-ups and everything you need to know about how this will work.
SO WHAT IS IT?!
It is a chance for MMA fans to watch the big MMA PPV events for CHEAP (as opposed to ~$40).
Basically for $4 you can watch a recording of the PPV event. The video will be in divx file format with a resolution of 720x528 w/ 29fps and can be downloaded thru the internet and watched on your computer OR you can burn the video to DVD and watch it on your TV (much better size and quality). The video will be posted for you to download within 24-48 hours of the live event. Please note that a 3 hour event will be around 1.7GB (high speed internet required).
HOW DOES IT WORK?! (this is the “readers digest” version. Details will come at a later date):
Prior to big MMA PPV events, I sign up 10 people who want to purchase a recording of the event for $4 each. Each person sends the payment via paypal to my account.
I purchase the live PPV event.
I capture this event to a high quality mpeg2 video format. I then convert it to a divx file to reduce its size. (you will need the free Divx player to watch it)
I upload the PPV event video to my webspace.
I email the link to this video to the 10 (or less) MMA fans that have paid $4 to my paypal account for this video.
WHAT ARE YOU CALLING THIS?! “Kalions MMA Club”
PLEASE NOTE that NO ONE (myself included) will be making any money off of this, because I am only allowing 10 people (10*$4=$40=PPV fight cost). The reason I am doing this is to enable myself and others to watch all the big events without having to go broke. I know that alot of people have friends that live near them that are also MMA fans, and so they will get together and hold fight parties where everyone chips in on the PPV event price to make it more affordable. This is great, and I wish I had that option. Unfortunately I do not have any friends that are MMA fans that live near me. So although I have been a MMA fan for a while now, I have only purchased ONE PPV MMA event (because they are so expensive). I suspect alot of MMA fans are in the same boat as me, and those are the people who I want to help out here.
If you are interested in this idea, please reply to this thread or PM me.
While "Kalions MMA Club" is not officially up and running yet, if you would like to see UFC 67(which is this Saturday night), please send me a PM.
Finally, I just want to re-iterate that this is a not-for-profit MMA fan club. I am not running a business here. All club members (people who signed up and paid) will be listed, to prove that I am not making any money. Also, I will take precautions to prevent the videos from being distributed outside of the Kalions Club members (details to come).
Well guys, let me know what you think of this idea. Again, soon I will provide you with much more info on this. All the PPV MMA events will be Pride and UFC, with the possibility of doing other organizations.
