Just when we thought that everything was all figured out, about an hour ago K-1 dropped a bit of a bomb on their fans; the stream of the event this Sunday will be completely free of charge. That's right, so if you were looking forward to watching the K-1 event and were not happy about paying $20 for it, it looks like you are in luck. Of course, it is not an entirely noble gesture. It turns out that the internet connection within the arena might not be cohesive with broadcasting an internet stream in HD. Read: Expect a choppy stream that will not be able to handle a decent amount of traffic.
Read the announcement from K-1 below.
"Dear all K-1 fans,
K-1 production team found the internet speed at the venue is not fast enough to support live streaming in high quality. However, they assume that internet speed is good enough to view the fight in standard quality.
We want more fans to enjoy watching exciting new K-1 show, so we decide to live stream for free of charge.
We will provide the recorded show in high quality as soon as it is ready.
We hope you all enjoy the exciting fight and feel the heat of new K-1.
K-1 Global Holdings Limited"
