UFC177_650x309
Get ready — UFC 177: Dillashaw vs Barao II is coming live to PS4 users! The August 30th, UFC 177 card, which features newly-minted champion TJ Dillashaw making his first title defense against former bantamweight king Renan Barao, will be available to purchase and watch from the convenience of your PS4 through the Live Events Viewer app — your hub for on-demand viewing of UFC and wrestling events, sports, concerts, and other entertainment.

Delivered straight to your living room from your PS4 and PS3 systems, the Live Events Viewer gives users the opportunity to watch exciting live content or catch up with on-demand viewing of UFC and wrestling events, concerts, races and more all with no subscription and no commitments.

The Live Event Viewer app for PS4 will be available later this week. To get it, follow these steps:

  1. Log on to PlayStation Store on your PS4 (or PS3).
  2. Find Live Events Viewer for download in the Apps section.
  3. Once the Live Events Viewer is downloaded, find it on PS4 in the TV & Video tile (or on PS3’s XMB under TV/Video Services).
  4. Log on with your Sony Entertainment Network username and password.
  5. Then, simply select UFC 177, purchase the event and enjoy watching Dillashaw versus Barao II.

Some of the live events will be offered on a pay-per-view basis and other events will be completely free. New events are added often, so make sure to check back each week!

    Hi + Biggz124. Unfortunately our Gamescon press conference will not be available via the Live Events Viewer. Hopefully in the future!

    Hi + coolasj19. Users will have to purchase the UFC177 event to watch it. You’ll find further details on the UFC site: http://www.ufc.com/event/UFC177?id=#howToWatchModule

    The Live Events Viewer app will offer some free content from time to time, so keep an eye open.

So will this Live Event Viewer let us use the WWE network on our PS4s in Canada?

Or is that just never going to happen/no WWE app for Canada?

    Hi + Boomstickbhg. The Live Event Viewer app provides access to a number of sports, music, and other live events, but it is not the WWE Network. Once the app launches, download it and you’ll see what is up and coming. As for if/when the WWE Network is coming to Canada, I’m afraid I don’t have any information for you.

Darn I was hoping when you said wrestling events that WWE stuff would be included.

In Canada the WWE network starts on the 12th, but only as a PPV style channel on Rogers only.

No app, no view whatever you want when you want, no watching on ps4/ps3/pc etc…

This would have been great if WWE stuff was included, but that’s the only reason I’d have to download it.

So this might be a silly question but are these events in HD?

I would also love to know if these events are in HD. Specifically the UFCs.
I can’t find an answer to this anywhere.

Thanks!
