    I don't think I have ever spent any money on PPV and I don't plan to start now. :)

    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.

    I do not, however I did get the last UFC during the 4th. We had company and they wanted to see it and gave me the money to pay for it. This is the how I do PPV. FREE

    Never. There's somebody who does watch UFC who told me the go-go bar 3 doors down from our building has a good deal for those kind of events.

    Never. I want a fixed bill, same amount each month.

    Actually I consider D* to be "PPV" and if what I want isn't there then I don't need it. Used to go to BlockBuster once in a while for a movie but now they are gone and I refuse to stick my card in a "Red Box" located in the breeze way of WM.

    We have the movie channels so we rarely get PPV.

    Every once in a while I'll want something in 1080p (for no other reason then I can :grin:) and then I'll get a PPV. :D

    I would have to say a couple of times a year.

    D* PPV never -- overpriced and you only get 24 hours. Amazon VOD quite a bit. That $1 cheaper per HD movie is a bargain. Sometimes it's even $2-3 cheaper on Amazon and many movies you get for 48 hours.

    Maybe ten years ago I bought a fight. I can't remember now who it was or even why, but I did.
