    I never bought a PPV in my life and I never will. I don't care if they sell it for $5. I haven't paid for any music in 25 years either. This is the computer age. If you even have minimal computer skills it's all there to be had for free

    I mean really, who can't ah-ford sixty dollahs?"

    "Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury 2 hit by millions of illegal streams. The WBC heavyweight championship fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder last month was reportedly streamed illegally by up to 20 million people, according to piracy expert Wayne Lonstein of VFT solutions"

    But if Boxing & UFC want to continue with the same platform and expect numbers from 5-10 years ago, be my guest.

    How do they expect to charge $75-100 for PPVs with how easy it is to get a Live 1080p Stream on a fires stick or other streaming devices?

    Serious question, how many of you actually still have Cable in 2020? It's almost like still having a phone line.

    Lol let them have their fantasy lad. These blokes from back home donít understand the USA, donít know any Americans, never been to the USA, and just have no understand that itís a totally different culture here. You can never explain it to them because they for some reason think the USA must be like the uk

We probably have less than a fifth of the total population, yet generally have 3 times as many ppv buys simply due to the price difference. DAZN is probably taking away more business than Bob and Al originally thought over there as well so there's maybe a need to undercut a rival to stay afloat

    Lower prices would help but competitive fights on the undercard would too. Doesn't have to be the biggest stars. Just even matchups.

    How about we abolish all PPVs to begin with.
