Default primetime live a rip off?

i've purchased all of primtimes events so far, i love boxing so i cant stop myself. However after paying 15 for the froch v's kessler fight i felt majorly ripped off. i onjly go to sdee the main event plus the last 3 or 4 rounds of one of the undercards. when i book an event at that price i expect to see atleast some of the undercard.

On their website it does not tell you what willl be shown.

the only event that showed more than one fight was the klitschko borefest

anyone else feel the same?

I paid 15 to watch Froch v Dirrell and it wouldnt let me watch the damn bout. Biggest rip off in the history of TV.

Unfortunately, all these events don't seem to have undercards worth watching. Poor showing from Primetime but poor undercards usually.

Primetime are doing a double-header on the same night:

V. Klitschko-A. Sosnowski 5.95

Wilfredo Vasquez Vs Zsolt Bedak and Rocky Martinez Vs Gonzalo Mungia world title double header. 5.95


Or you can order both cards for a tenner.

are you describing the undercard 'brutal' as in good or shite?

it looks fairly ordinary to me, nothing special at all

i'd still prefer it was shown though

yeah ive grown fairly dipondent with primetime, i got excited when it was launched thinking it was going to be another place to access good boxing. turns out its the first place ive thought twice about paying for an event ever again. They don't employ anyone you can talk to, or complain to. i'm not one of these people who usually complains about paying for fights. perhaps if they advertised exactly what you were goingto pay for or even employed some staff that you could call and ask before parting with your cash

I've found them to be amateurish at best and the technical problems thousands have experienced are unforgiveable. I'm not condoning it, but you can understand people opting to use a free and reliable stream instead when all they want is to see the fight.

it's a rip off when considering you don't see the undercard, and also be able to catch the fight on livestream.
