I'm on Virgin and I use a dvd recorder to record for my collection not V+ or Sky+ just to record to my TV

If I can't record a fight for my collection when I pay 15 I may aswell avoid the result and buy it for a fiver and have it sent to my house the monday.

Also no undercard fights puts me off too.

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?
me, they talk drivell all night like thier trying to kill time, and the agravating thing is theres a fight going on and they wont shut up and show it.

I was going to say, there is nothing wrong with just taking the world feed broadcast for those sorts of shows. There is hardly any time for analysis between fights, and people just moan at whoever they have on anyway.

I'd much rather pay 5.95 for a direct international or world feed than a tenner which pays for UK analysis and commentators.

Plus I can't believe people would really prefer Rawling and McKenzie over the Showtime crew on any of the super 6 fights.

I didn't see the Puerto Rican card. I watched the Klitschko fight and there was one commentator on his own. He barely speaks through the undercard. Who was commentating for the PR card?

It is a total rip off,i blame sky as normal.They have 4 sports channels and could easily have put the fights prime time have shown on one of them.
