    I used to buy boxing and WWE on occasion but they have really priced me out.
    I hardly buy any of them any more.

    Rarely now that prices are up and storage of ppv no longer permitted. Though my R10 does not delete ppv movies.

    poll?

    never

    They sent a free 3 PPV coupon. Then it got screwed up and I had to spend a half hour on the phone getting a credit. Now I won't even try that again.

    I think the OP is referring to events and not movies. Like UFC, WWE, boxing, etc.

    I used to get Wrestlemania every year and maybe a big boxing match but those are usually on HBO the next week. Its funny now when UFC or WWE have a PPV I start the day thinking I want it and then by the end of the day I've talked myself out of it. If HD were under $50 I'd really consider buying more.

    I get WM every year and maybe 2 or 3 others. I'll get UFC if 3 or 4 fights look good. I'll get boxing if it's Mayweather. ;)

    SInce 1994, I'm going to guess 2 movies just to see how it worked. Never had much desire to order even a real boxing match and never even crossed my mind to watch the fake stuff much less pay for it.

    On holidays when there is nothing on the tube, I may purchase a movie.

    So I'll say maybe two movies a year.

    I was not aware there were different kinds of PPV, but it does not change my answer.;)

    Never for events. 2 movies in last 13-14 years and likely not again.

    Never. No events, and no movies are worth the price they ask.
