    I know must of you just watch illegal streams, or dont have PPVs in your country (like me, its actually free where I live you just to pay the cable bill).

    I read the other day that many PPV offer a non HD version for like 10$ less.

    Just a random thought.

    Only when I watch them on my 9” Black and White tv. I also have my pong gaming unit hooked up to it.

    I did after I compared them and realized when everythings going on I dont really notice a difference but then they made the HD the only option

    I did with UFC 200 by accident. It wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. But I was also drunk as fuck.

    I accidently did it for Jones Cormier 1. It looked like shit and i had a bunch of people over so i had to order the HD version too. I called my cable company the next day to try to get a refund on the non HD version. When i checked my next bill they had refunded them both. That was sweet.

    Exact same event but my laptop died just as the first fight was going to start. So I ordered fast and just picked the wrong option. Not that I noticed a difference in quality because I was drunk as fuck.

    Same here, it was on two separate channels and I accidentally got the standard definition broadcast.

    I rarely pay but when I do I save the 10 bucks. I don't need HD and I can buy a pizza with the saved cash.
