Hoping to get a couple of questions answered about the UFC on Roku. Just ordered my Roku XD prmarily because of the UFC. I sort of put myself in a bind for UFC 129. Taking the wife and kids to Disneyworld, etc. for a few weeks and damned if I didn't book the flight to screw me up with the PPV...and of course this card has to be really good (GSP, Shields, Aldo, Couture & Machida all on the same card!!!). We'll be arriving in Orlando (in theory) at 8:17 pm EST. I figure with bags, rental car and driving to the hotel, I'll be in my room by 10 pm at best. Event starts at 9, not to mention any possible prelims, etc. I wanted to figure out a way to watch the event in my hotel room on the TV (since I just have a netbook so the screen is pretty small), and Roku seemed like a good (only?) option. I have a Verizon 4G mobile hotspot, so I think I'll have the necessary speed.
My main issue is that since I'll be missing at least the first hour and maybe more I think maybe I should just wait and order a replay (if available) on Sunday. I have no problem staying off the message boards and can make a point of not watching the sports news. I think I would rather see the whole event on replay than just a portion live. Some other posts that I've read have led me to believe that if I order the live event, it will automatically be saved on Roku under "Live Events" or something and I can access it anytime after the event. Is this the case? Once ordered, can I then watch it any time I want and as many times as I want? (If this is the case, I guess it would give me the best of both worlds, as I could watch probably at least the last 3 fights live and then later/the next day watch whatever part of the event I missed). If I don't end up ordering the live event or won't be able to replay it if I do, are UFC replays available at specific times or on demand? Also, is the quality of the replay better than the live event?
