Wilder vs. Fury 2 live stream options
As the Associated Press noted earlier this week, the Wilder-Fury rematch is a big enough deal that rival TV networks ESPN and Fox Sports teamed up to make the heavyweight bout happen. Fury is signed with ESPN, while Fox broadcasts Wilder’s fights.
Thus, a match made in pay-per-view revenue heaven.
For you, the fan, the fight costs $79.99. You can purchase the PPV through both ESPN+ and Fox Sports. With ESPN, you’ll have to buy the fight and a month of an ESPN+ subscription for $84.99 total. With Fox, you can either purchase and stream on FoxSports.com or on the Fox Sports app. Both cost $79.99.
Not that the ESPN+ price for Wilder vs. Fury II is the same as the price for the McGregor vs. Cowboy UFC fight in January—the difference being that ESPN was offering a full year subscription as part of the bundle price, rather than a month.
Still, if you’re looking to host friends Saturday night, you’ll be able to watch the fight on your smart TV or through any number of streaming devices with ESPN+ or Fox Sports.
