    My guess is that it’s being funded by people who forgot to stop their direct debit and don’t check their bank statements.

    It's got to be a vehicle for something surely ie tax avoidance, moving money, pay people higher salaries, no way even if they are picking up cards cheap they can be making a profit they must have what 5000 subscribers maximum and even that is probably over playing

    Their output has definitely improved in 2019. It is very noticeable.

    More live fight cards, better content during the day (more recent re-run fights and a variety of them). Previously it was the same few talking head shows, limited number of repeat fights from a long time ago on a loop, 7 days per week.

    It is a channel that is being run alot a better than it was in 2016, 2017 or 2018.

    Across the world
    All cards beam
    Just remember to fish
    In your local stream

    Whatever you do
    Here is a clue
    Never ever
    Pay PPV

    Are you joking ?
    If there are more live fight cards, which I doubt, it is now mainly small-hall stuff.
    Whats happened over the last year or so is that all of Frank Warrens up and coming fighters have moved over to BT Sport instead. Your Framptons, Dubois, Yardes and the like.
    Coverage of US fights has fallen off a cliff. All those non belt fringe contender fights that Boxnation used to pick up from the states isn't happening anymore. Do they even bother bidding on these events now ??
    What I'm seeing less fights, and less big names.

    This is completely right. Until recently there were the Top Rank shows, they're gone. This Filipino show is absolute junk really.

    It’s included with a BT Sport subscription though, so they must be getting something, probably pennies per BT subscriber a month on top of the ten people still paying there standalone sub.

    there are no top rank shows being shown on top rank for ages. I wonder if we get the top rank shows , when the disney streaming come out maybe they will bundle the boxing. Otherwise top rank is losing exposure to his fighters, while us matchroom is still being shown in uk, same with pbc shows
