First, let’s talk about the best streaming services that bring UFC-related content. As noted above, you have several interesting options in front of you. 

What’s the Best UFC Streaming Platform for Roku in 2020? 

Without any doubt, the best way to watch UFC on Roku is via ESPN+. Right now, this is the best way to stay up-to-date with UFC PPV events and UFC-related content. 

Tip

ESPN+ offers a bundle that includes UFC’s PPV events as well – priced at $84.98 annually (25% off). So, get your ESPN Plus + UFC bundle subscription to enjoy everything this platform offers on your Roku and other devices as well.

Aside from offering UFC’s PPV events, ESPN+ gives you access to UFC Fight Night, Dana White’s Contender Series, UFC Destined, as well as the full 30 for 30 library. There's plenty to watch here, both live and on-demand.

We’re 100% sure that UFC fans are going to love this streaming platform. So, before you proceed to the next step, don’t forget to get your ESPN+ subscription

Are There Other Options for Streaming UFC on Roku?

Even though ESPN+ is the best option right now, it’s not the only option. Depending on your needs, you can also watch ESPN channels via the following OTT platforms. 

Step #2: Install UFC Channels (Apps) on Your Roku

We hope that you’ve got your ESPN+ subscription by now. If that’s so, here’s how to add this media streaming platform to your Roku. 

As you can see, we've told you to install the ESPN channel on your Roku. That's because ESPN+ is integrated with the ESPN Roku channel, so you now need to activate it.

Your ESPN+ subscription will now be linked to your Roku device. Of course, you'll also get to access ESPN+ in any other way, on any other device (via the Web or ESPN+ apps).

Tip

Here’s the direct link to the ESPN channel on Roku’s Channel Store. You can use it to speed up the set-up process. Click on the 'Add Channel' button to add it to your Roku, and then proceed to authenticate your ESPN+ account, as described above.

Step #3: Install a VPN Application (For Privacy & Unblocking Geo-Restrictions)

UFC-related platforms such as ESPN+ are restricted to the USA only. With that said, the only way to bypass this limitation is by using a VPN service.

Tip

Keep in mind that services like ESPN+ can be hard to unblock. That’s why you need an ultra-powerful VPN. We highly recommend subscribing to ExpressVPN.  

By using VPNs such as ExpressVPN, you can sign-up for ESPN+ from just about anywhere. However, you’ll also need to have an active VPN session in the background to watch UFC on Roku. This is where you’ll encounter a problem. 

Roku doesn’t work with VPNs, and there are no VPN-related apps or channels to install. So, to overcome this obstacle, we recommend installing a VPN on a router. Once again, ExpressVPN can make this process as easy as possible.
