200k viewers isn't that great- remember that includes licensed premises. I still reckon Boxnation is at around the 50k subscriber mark.

Boxing doesn't cost what Premiership football does. You wouldn't need millions of subscribers to be successful.

BoxNation only have to do 2 or 3 live broadcasts a week, including a Bunce Hour. I can't imagine that the Bunce Hour costs much to do! Some of the boxing they are just using an international broadcast and say Bunce and Lillis in the studio as pundits. Hardly expensive TV either.

Considering what they do, 200,000 would be pretty sweet I imagine.

The domestic cards cost more than you think to produce hence why there isn't that many at the current time. 200k for a small show would be great numbers however we have no idea how many on average tune into Boxnation per week.

It's clear Boxnation have no ability to get Top Rank cards anymore. Whether this is because they are not willing to pay or that Top Rank have the hump because Boxnation have a deal with Goldenboy I don't know. What I do know is that any channel calling itself a dedicated boxing channel must have fights like Donaire/Rios double header.
