Now we can bring the excitement and energy of our live show to millions of homes. - BAMMA USA CEO Brett Roberts
Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
Another First for BAMMA USA
At 7:00 pm PST on Friday, August 9, 2013 another milestone will be reached by BAMMA USA when its highly successful professional MMA fight series, Badbeat MMA, will be broadcast on live television to over 5 million homes in California and Nevada. "This is a big step for us," remarked BAMMA USA CEO Brett Roberts. "It affirms that the quality of our product is up to television standards. Now we can bring the excitement and energy of our live show to millions of homes. This agreement will open many other doors not only for the promotion but for our fighters as well, and it is a great way to celebrate our tenth show."
Virtual channel 64, KILM is an independent television station with studios in Beverly Hills, CA. Under a local marketing agreement, the station is operated by Alki David’s ‘FilmOn’. Through this arrangement, KILM carries programming from ‘FilmOn’ and ‘My Combat Channel’. The station transmits to 5.6 million homes in both the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area and the San Bernadino-Riverside Metropolitan Area regions. An additional 2 million homes receive KILM programming through the ‘Channel 3 Dish Network’ in California and Nevada. KILM programming is also made available to a worldwide audience over its website (http://www.filmonla.com).
KILM will broadcast the complete event by scheduling a 4 hour block on their television network, beginning at 7:00 pm PST. Badbeat MMA has plans to carry fighter interviews, event coverage, specialized advertising, and other pertinent content to enhance the broadcast of another action-packed night of MMA action. The much anticipated main event is for the Badbeat MMA Featherweight Championship Title. Chris Culley will try to regain the vacated title against Jesse Newell. Culley was awarded the featherweight belt earlier this year by Badbeat MMA in recognition of his accomplishments inside the Badbeat MMA cage but when he failed to make weight at Badbeat 9, the promotion stripped him of the belt. Tune in to see if Culley can regain the featherweight title or will Newell grab the belt for himself.
