    I'm assuming that they aren't considering HBO viewers as PPV buys because HBO isn't PPV.

    We need Zroc's input here, especially with him citing Google Trends and Twitter Feeds....

    otherwise, this entire thread has 0 credibility.

    It wasn't a PPV in England, it was on Sky Sports (a premium subscription channel). At least I think that was the case.
