I'd like to see a bit more of the behind the scenes stuff to build fights. It will help raise boxers profiles which is a good thing. Get a camera crew on George Groves
Please, don't.

The casual fans are giving BoxNation loads of shit on twitter. I've read some cracking stuff.

Maybe its me i don't now but i find it very very difficult to watch Box Nation when there isn't boxing on , actual live boxing

Sky on the other hand are providing a good watch nowadays but both still fall short of HBO IMHO

Thought Tim Witherspoon was excellent tonight as a pundit and if David Price signs they should use him as a pundit as well. I like Rawling as a commentator but they need to get someone half decent to partner him.

That said, how many fights are going on in August? Can the channel afford to only be open for 11 months of the year effectively?

I wouldn't give a cent of my money to Rupert ****ing criminal Murdoch, which rules out a Sky subscription, buying The Sun, Fox News, Sky News, The Times, that paper he has in NYC (New York Times?) and anything else that nation-hopping criminal cunt has to offer. I watch Sky Sports for free, never paid for that shit since Mayweather - Hatton.

Boxnation is ****ing brilliant. If you're a boxing freak and you don't have it then consider yourself a disgrace

It's a good buy. They need HD though.

****** has his TV dates with this channel - It just annoys me that the likes of Gavin, Degale, Mitchell, Cleverly, Groves, Bellew etc. who boxing fans really want to see, aren't active enough!

Is there maybe a case of it costs too much to put on shows i.e. boxers fees means making a loss for each show and that by limiting the amount of 'smaller' shows thus cutting dates and thus relying on just the few 'big' shows a year he feels it's the best way to make money through channel subscription?

In that situation you can just stick a long aerial cable in the back of the Sky box and get it on two TVs. (As long as people don't want to watch different things.)

But make sure the aerial cable is going to a TV that can/could tune in the old analogue signals.
