I pick up the UFC events whenever possible. I will never pay for any that WWE silliness. I can't imagine a bigger waste of time or money.

I can. Dish Network. ;)
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

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'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

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.
