Which one is the superior broadcaster - Showtime Or HBO?
Consider all the pros and cons of each network - Showtime and HBO - things like..
the personality/skill of the commentary teams
the level of bias on display through the broadcasts
the filming/camera work
fight schedule / roster
the standard of the post-fight interviews
boxing related documentaries
.. and any other relevant factors..
Which network comes out on top at the end of it all?

HBO has the better production value but Showtime has a far better crew IMO.

The production goes to HBO hands down. They really know how to build up a fight too. However, the Showtime announcers excel over their HBO counter parts. Al Bernstein alone is so much better than most announces on HBO with Roy being the exception. I think he's HBO's best announcer, even with his made up, miss pronounced words.

Everyone gives HBO **** for their commentators, but I don't mind them I think they add a sense of history and legacy by just being there. HBO has the history of bring the major boxing outlet. HBO also seems better production wise.

I agree with those who think HBO has the better show but Showtime has the better announcers. Especially now that Larry Merchant retired and Emanuel Steward passing away, HBO took a dip in the commentary.
