Events = 0
Movies = 3 in 12 years

I always wonder if all those movie channels can possibly provide revenue streams that justify their bandwidth.

I never have. My wife used to get a movie or two a year but quit when they started deleting them after 24 hours. Not worth the money. Not a wrestling fan.

All these "never" responses...Where's the UFC or boxing fans?


Right here. I watch all the UFC events either at my house or at a friends house where I usually chip in with $20. I watch every UFC, Most StrikeForce, Most Dream cards, All episodes of Ultimate Fighter, if its to level MMA then I watch it.

I've probably done 5 or 6 UFC events. None in the last year since I moved though since I have a hard time getting my buddies to drive out to BFE where I live now to watch them.

No PPV events, about two movies in the past 3 1/2 years.

I think the movies are overpriced, but the events are absolutely ridiculous.

I used to get one or two wwe events per year but none anymore. I don't think I've ever ordered any ppv movies.

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


Well I did say events as opposed to movies but it's all good.

Maybe a couple of times when I first started my account back in 1995, but since then the value of PPV events and movies doesn't work for me. So nothing since. I do not do anything PPV and even block out all the shopping channels.

Have never bought an event. Unless a single day subscription to NFL counts as an event -- did that once when my brother was visiting and we HAD to see our Steelers.

When I first started in 1997 we used to buy a PPV movie once in a while, but not since subscribing to Netflix in 2000.
