This is the freshest news from Japan. My Japanese is sketchy at best, but this is what I understand from a press announcement made in Tokyo today.
Pride has announced a strategic partnership with Japanese broadcaster DMM.com. Unfortunately this isn’t the Live TV deal that was hoped for, but it is better than nothing.
For the first time ever, Pride will be shown on live streaming broadcast via www.DMM.com
The duo of companies are also in talks about making the live transmissions free to watch.
A representative of the organisation said “Fighters always fight better in front of a large live audience. Whether people are watching live at home or live on their PC, the same effect is generated.”
