    "UFC are going to overlay a unique ID/Barcode which will appear in a random location at a random time on the screen, one frame every 10 seconds.

    The unique ID will be unique to each customer so the UFC will have systems on hand reviewing each stream and then when the unique ID pops on screen, the customer will be identified and immediately cut off and legal action will be taken. "


    The McGregor fight tonight :damn:

    I’m surprised it took them this long.


    When games have closed alphas they do something similar so if someone is streaming the game they’ll know exactly who it is.

    vpn won't do shyt. Every customer has a unique id. So they can hide IP address but cannot hide their UFC account they are streaming the video from. Once the unique id is identified the stream is instantly cut off. :damn:

    Dana white has been woofing about this for a minute. We'll see what happens. My guess is it will stop a couple of the biggest streamers but not stop the whole wave.

    read again, the unique id that flashes on the screen. If you screen record, you expose your id and UFC identifies.

    They'll figure out a rotating stream source. Most reputable streaming sites already have 8+ links :unimpressed:
