DEEP Jewels 4 iPPV official purchase web
Recently, Japanese MMA organizations have tried to reach foreign fans
with iPPV streams. It is a constant struggle to attract more fans and
viewers, but at DEEP 66 Impact, Shigeru Saeki said that the event had
performed better than he had initially thought. There is still a ways to
go in order to meet his expectations and that has led him to the
challenge of using PPV for DEEP and DEEP Jewels events. On May 18, DEEP
Jewels 4 debuts on iPPV at Ustream.tv.
I hope that WMMA fans
encourage others to watch the event because the number of people that
watch will decide whether DEEP Jewels continues or not. You may remember
that Pancrase did trial streams on Ustream, but it was short-lived.
It's all about business. Saeki took over Jewels business when it was
heavily in the red and many were against his decision to do so. If you
see yourself as a WMMA fan, it's a do-or-die situation in defending one
of the few all-female MMA promotions that still exists.
