Regional piracy data for UFC 229 - US with 45% of pirate viewing.

With PPV buys expected to hit over 3 million UFC 229 was bound to attract high levels of unauthorised streaming and viewing hand in hand with high levels of legitimate viewing.

Klipcorp systems analysed the regionality of the pirate viewing and we thought it would be useful to share the results.

Our systems saw pirate viewing in 65 countries worldwide but with 4 markets accounting for 67% of the activity.

The US market was by far the largest with 45% of the pirate viewing, followed by the UK with 9%, Canada with 7% and Australia with 6% of the pirate viewing.

A couple of examples of pirate activity are below.




The high concentration of pirate viewing in the US market for UFC 229 (as other content will deliver different results) is probably due to a combination of high levels of US promotion and the price point.

KSI v Logan Paul marks fundamental shift

Last nights wildly popular amateur boxing event live on YouTube PPV proves a number of things;

1. The immense power of video enabled social media platforms. With respect to the competitors they are not at the pinnacle boxing - and yet the audience size dwarfed many (if not all ) genuine title fights online. The platform outscores the content - and the power of satellite and cable is now dwindling with the younger demographic. It has been on the cards for a while but now proven.

2. Live PPV can work on the internet at scale. The streams on my TV via the Amazon Fire TV stick were solid and while the production was a little kooky it maybe added to the charm - the presenters and commentary team were perfect IMO.

3. To those of us elbow deep in the digital space the graphic below showing YouTube being ripped off by the pirates on the Twitch platform (our monitoring showed it was everywhere else too) may bring a wry smile. Content protection and discovery is a big challenge. Individual streams at 400k and above.
