Hey there fight fans! After all that belly-aching, my plaintive cries for another viewing option were answered!
You can order the fights as an official online stream, direct from the Strikeforce website, for just $24.95. Of course, if you have s-video cables or something like it, you can watch the fights on your television as well.
Strikeforce previously limited this option to customers in the USA, but it is now available everywhere. The service is called Strikeforce: All Access because it offers several behind the scenes features. For one thing, you can toggle between the broadcast feed or four other different camera angles. One of those angles is the ref cam, which is a pretty cool way to watch a fight.
Here's an even better explanation of the service direct from Strikeforce:
With Strikeforce: All Access, fans can be their own director and toggle among five live cameras with full pause and rewind capabilities including Showtime Sports exclusive CageCam®—a small, high quality camera worn by the referee which takes viewers inside the cage during the fights. Audio tracks will include the Showtime telecast fight call by host and play-by-play announcer Mauro Ranallo, and color commentators Frank Shamrock and Stephen Quadros, as well as the corresponding audio to the selected camera. Showtime is again working with BitGravity, Inc. and Episodic, Inc. to enable this unique multi-media experience. All Access fans also will receive a live Twitter feed from the event and can join behind-the scenes staff in tweeting about "Strikeforce" and "Showtime Sports" during the evening. Through a Facebook® Connect application, fans will be able to make predictions, comment on the live fights, discuss outcomes and more directly on the All Access page.
