    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.

    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.

    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.
