You pay $137.50 a card?

Considering UFC 156/157 haven't even be announced there is no way I'd go for this offer. Sure you're saving about $10 a fight, but with the amount of cards that have been decimated due to injuries I wouldn't take a chance that all 6 of these cards would be worth purchasing at this point, so many things can change. I guess if you buy every card religiously it's a good deal, but how many people actually do that? Personally me and a couple buddies will split the cost of probably 5/6 good cards a year, the rest we'll just catch at the bar.

I haven't bought a PPV in forever, but aren't they around 50 bucks? This looks like a great deal.

Edit: Missed the "For 2 months, or 275 in one payment" part.

They're about $65-70 to watch in HD, $60 no HD.

I think it's quite a bit lower in the states though unless the prices went up in the last year or so.

If you've got your tv hooked up to your computer it's $50 no tax if you buy and stream them through the UFC website.

55 for HD here in the States, and 45 for regular.

Ah, HD. That didn't occur to me, but now it makes sense. SD is $45 and HD is $55, so they're obviously talking HD.

I guess I didnt click on the ad. Typical bait and switch. Now they want to sell their crappy cards sight unseen?

Ya, I dont see that working too well.

It's great for the hardcore fan that buys every PPV regardless. I'd be much more likely to do something like this than buy individual PPVs on a regular basis.

Its a pretty good discount on the price I pay ($65ea). And if you buy every ppv then it would be a good deal.

Trouble is a lot of the ppv's these days arent really worth buying imo. Two or three years ago, ya, you could just blindly plunk down your money because you knew you were getting solid cards one after the other more often than not.

Now a solid ppv card is the exception, not the rule.

Maybe they are thinking of scrapping ppv altogether and going on Fox? Hard to judge without knowing what their plan is, but from the outside, as a fan, it looks a little shaky.

That might actually be what it is in my area as well. I think I was including taxes. I remember the charge on the bill for the last few I've ordered being around $67-68 which would be $60 + tax.

Plus, I only live a few hours drive south of Sudbury so it would make sense that I pay the same as you.

A few buddies of mine that I usually watch events with work at Shaw. They get half price on PPV events... I wonder if they'd get half off this package?
