    I wanna buy the PPV but don't have cable, I'm hosting some friends over.

    I have download speed that goes from 16-25mbps

    Will I be able to stream it HD without buffering issues? I have a good PC + Xbox One.

    I personally feel like the Youtube PPV through UFC channel is the best route but I've never actually used anything other than Cable PPV before...

    Anyone have experience with Youtube PPV or have other suggestions? I just wanna have stress free night and no issues to worry about.. Don't normally buy the PPV but want no risks for such a big fight.

    Thank you!

    I stated the options for buying it on PC or console in the OP.

    I was just asking if it's good and for reviews and if my download speed is good enough

    I feel hesitant to trust the UFC TV app on Xbox one for some reason, I feel way better with youtube on my good PC hooked up to TV screen, but I would like opinions and reviews if anyone used.

    Thanks

    In all honesty you should be fine. I would go with the Youtube setup as anything Youtube streaming rarely has problems, I have Youtube TV and it streams without a hitch. I agree I can't trust the xbox app.

    Set it up several hours before to make sure it works properly.

    I would go with the UFC app through Xbox One. I've done it at similar speeds to you a bunch of times and have never had an issue.

    I can recommend using the PC. I've bought them through the UFC.com site a bunch of times. The quality is impressive and have never had any issues.

    Good question. I am pretty sure the answer is yes as they are both ufc.tv purchases, but I've never watched through the website so I don't know for sure.

    I've had good luck with buying on YouTube before. No issues.

    Can you choose quality just like a normal YouTube video?

    Thanks

    Is it exactly like watching the Live weigh in tonight on both UFC TV + Youtube?

    Good way for me to test both if its exact same

    So far I'm liking Youtube live stream on PC the best with this weigh in.. If it will work like this It'd be great. I hope the PPV is the same.

    I think you can toggle between some options 480/720 ... don’t think I’ve seen 1080.

    I ended up buying on Youtube.

    Stream worked flawless 1080p, had absolutely 0 issues. 10/10
