In pre-launch publicity, it was originally indicated ITV would show the undercard on ITV4. The broadcaster has since clarified it will show all fights on ITV Box Office. Additionally ITV Box Office will also repeat the main fight throughout Sunday 5th February 2017.

ITV Box Office joins a growing number of ITV services available behind a paywall, including ITV Encore and HD versions of ITV's offshoot channels, as the broadcaster diversifies away from traditional linear free-to-air channels.
