    Mate if you complain about that show for £2... I haven’t even got words to describe you.

    Just loaded the app onto my Xbox (watched it on my phone in the night) and the picture quality on the big telly does seem great.

    If I am paying for it I think I can complain about it.
    And my argument stands.

    DAZN is a bargain. I remember when I signed up I got the Campbell Garcia fight and something else good that I can’t remember. Williams Andrade and BJS Canelo in quick succession.

    It’s so much better when you don’t feel you’re being fleeced.

    Canelo v Smith was also on it. And a GGG fight was too.

    I've watched about 10 high quality fights on it for about 10 quid since I've had it.

    Don't forget to cancel guys, their schedule over the next few months is thin. Haney-Linares is a poor fight.

    If DAZN stick more to boxing they could be on a winner by having worldwide rights to bills. There might not be enough of a market in anyone country but it they have big names from UK, Mexico and America on channel they will have a huge number of worldwide subscribers.

    No offense, but this type of message always makes me smile. Some people on here are very close to a £, aren't they ?

    Why pay for something that brings you no use?

    Eddie Hearn isn't a charity.

    Part of DAZN's business model is based on people being too lazy to cancel.

    I suspect it will continue as today, the model works.

    A subscription to watch the fighters being built up, and their big fights on PPV.

    Sometimes I like to be really reckless and not cancel on a quiet month and let Eddie Hearn have my £2. I never feel more alive !

    No, PPV is really for the casuals who lap it up. “Hardcore” boxing fans are relatively low in number and not enough to generate the money on subscription alone.
    The casual isn’t gonna subscribe to boxing only app, but will lap up unworthy PPVs with fake drama

    This is absolutely right. People who read and contribute to a forum like this have naturally increased their knowledge of the sport. The casual who will ' lap up unworthy PPVs with fake drama' will think that Chisora v Parker is elite level while being oblivious to a match up like Loma v Lopez or Taylor v Ramirez.

    Tbf 2 quid for the canelo card and haney vs linares is good value

    Haney vs linares is a better fight than any on the 20 quid Parker chisora ppv
