Default Primetime is appalling.

**** me, I forgot how shit Primetime was.

It looks like they imported the set from Beadles About in the 80s. Plus for 15 you dont get any pre-fight interviews? Appalling.

And as for Steve Collins? What a shit bag he is. According to Steve! JCC Jnr is a household name, & Sergio is a complete unheard of. That's all he kept saying.

Terrible

I just don't understand how the Boxnation haters find the time to do so when Primetime are in business.

Yes, Sky still lead the way in polished presentation, but Boxnation also leave Primetime standing both in terms of overall presentation, value, and amount of coverage that you get for your money.

Yes the Chavez Jnr/Martinez was a big one and I was most disappointed that neither Sky nor Boxnation broadcast it, but for the 15 Primetime charged for that show last night you get six weeks on Boxnation.

Have a look at what is on the schedule for the next six weeks and compare.

Surely its time to stop the hating of Boxnation, get behind it and allow it to be in the finacial position to outbid Primetime in future.

Last nights main event was superb and despite Primetimes best efforts to do otherwise, it was still immensely enjoyable, but imagine how much better the show would have been if it had been on either Sky or Boxnation.

We have to accept the unfortunate truth that, for the time being at least, Sky have taken the decision to ease back on what they show, so in the meantime the way to see main event world title boxing from overseas is down to Boxnation and Primetime.

I know which one I would prefer to watch it on...............

I could not bring myself to pay 15 last night and saw the result is morning. They are treating boxing fans has as an inelastic demand.

Yep. I was watching the free UK show on the Primetime website when all of a sudden the fight was replaced with something that looked like it was from the Adult channel. It lasted a few seconds before the whole stream crashed.

Venus claimed it was a "bug" and would be looked into, but I didn't hear anything about it again. Quite unprofessional, but this is Primetime after all...

I thought it may have been something in my browser history coming back to haunt me, but somebody else on here noticed it too.
