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.

3-5 per year.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

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.
DTV & NFLST since 97 at least, not looked back yet...

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