Watching the Mayweather vc McGregor fight...

Wasn't sure whether to post here or on the TV forum. Kinda belongs to both.

As someone who doesn't watch much sports but can still appreciate a good boxing match, what are my choices for watching this live? Is it only Foxtel or are there any online, pay once providers for sporting events?

It will be PPV on Foxtel only, unless you get a dodgy stream. If you want to watch it legally without Foxtel best way would be to go to a pub that is playing it.

Cheers Sathias.

Yeah, my bro and I went to a pub restaurant for the Mayweather Pacqiau fight but he didn't book. Despite getting there early it was full. Might have to plan it better this time.

It could also end up on the UFC fightpass PPV thing, which still costs as much of Mainevent on Foxtel and you stream it online, I've never used it so I don't know what the quality is like. My vote is for Pub, its also what I plan to do.

I'm not sure I'll watch it live, it's going to be an all-boxing card and there is talk the PPV is going to be $100 US or more. And I can't be arsed going to a crowded pub full of bogans in Tapout gear :P

Hmmmm....
Why make $100m when Conor can land a "lucky punch" and set up a $300m trilogy?

I think you mean Affliction gear, Tapout is a WWE clothing line now.

2 pubs in my town will be showing the fight live, one allows thongs and singlets the other doesn't, I'll be going to the one that doesn't.

Housesitting at my bro's place and I can't remember my PSN login details and don't want to be purchasing stuff with my bro's PSN account.

Guess I'm out of luck :-(

Was a good fight, Twitch/Youtube kept having streams going up and down, enough to watch the whole thing.

McG for the first 3 looked insane... then Mayweather woke up. Man that was brutal.

I enjoyed the shit out of that fight TBH, great fight, expected result, great attitude from both fighters at the end.

Could have picked that McGregor would get gased, he gets gased in UFC fights let alone 12 rounds of boxing.

Stream got a bit choppy so I didn't enjoy the fight the first time... rewatched one of the Youtube uploads and enjoyed it much more without the choppiness. Though, a TKO never has the impact that a KO does (not that I'd expect to have seen a KO).
