    £1.99 just now, I’d guess as much as 80% of subscribers will drop off once, and it will, increase

    Dazn will go up and up in price. Sky etc don't go down. So you'll be paying roughly the same as if you were paying for every ppv anyway...

    Would happily pay £1.99 to watch Haney vs Linares. I’m sure more fights will be on there too.

    let’s be honest in 5 months I’ve spent a tenner on it and seen GGG, Canelo vs Smith, Garcia vs Campbell, Canelo vs Yildrim, Estrada vs Chocolatito, Parker vs Fa, Andrade vs Williams amd Canelo vs Saunders. If there’s a dry month I can take it. Not going to cancel to save myself a pound. In that space of 5 months for £30 a month on BT be watched Tommy Fury vs a guy that 0-9 BT and Sky have had a couple of decent fights. But for the price I’d rather give DAZN my £1.99 and hope it works out.

    In what way? If you cancel Sky and this becomes £8.99 a month?
    Sky you pay £40 a month and £20 PPV every other month. That’s £50 a month and the content is half as good.
    DAZN is a fifth of the price

    You’d be surprised. If all of the Matchroom shows go to DAZN as expected you would be surprised how many people forget to cancel their membership. DAZN would have been out of business a long time ago if they had an 80% drop off rate.

    F me, for £1.99 a month it's a no-brainer. Are people actually debating whether to subscribe for £1.99 a month? Its excellent value.

    Assuming Canelo fights twice a year that’s £12 to watch a Canelo fight. When weighed up against £80 a month for sky sports plus £20 to watch every time dillian Whyteleafe fights, I take the the ZONE offer. Without prejudice.

    Only if you only have sky for boxing. Vast majority don't.

    To be fair the majority of the DAZN undercards are pure garbage.

    They make up for it with some good main events here and there.

    I’d guess as little as 20% of subscribers will drop off when prices increase.

    I’ve factored “going up a lot” into my sheer guesswork.

    Some people are tighter than a pair of extra small jeans on Fatty Arbuckle.
