March 28, 2009Setanta shares TUF with Virgin Media

by David Allen

The sports satellite broadcaster Setanta will be showing the next series of “The Ultimate Fighter”, which has promised the most spectacular action ever seen in the TUF history.

The series will be shared with Virgin Media to reach an estimated audience of twenty two million homes throughout the UK.
The series will follow sixteen UK fighters pitched against sixteen US fighters for the ultimate prize of Ultimate Fighter.

Virgin Media will be getting the first bite at the TUF cherry by airing the show on Sundays at 11pm.
This show will then be repeated on Wednesdays at 10pm on Setanta Sports.
The series will start on the 5th April and will run for twelve weeks until the TUF 9 final.
This is where Setanta takes the prize as they get to show this exclusively live.
