I just looked in the TV guide and I didnt see it listed on TV1 or Tv3, I thought oh well Sky must be showing it, but I cant see it there either.

Is it not being broadcast anywhere?

Cheers

It's on Sky Pay-Per-View - $40

Far out, Sky base fee, then you've probably got the sport add on anyway if you're into this sort of event, and then $40 on top of all that?!

I wonder if Sky and the event organisers are doing the Prostate Cancer Foundation a disservice. I would expect a reasonable percentage of the PPV revenue to go to the charity, but wouldn't they raise more funds (through requesting donation, 0900 number, TXT, etc.) if they had a bigger audience through normal subscriber channels or vene free-to-air.

I certainly won't be paying $40 to watch it, but probably would be watching if I didn't have to fork out that sort of $$$ and would then probaby be inclined to make a donation.

That's exactly how I feel.

The fact that every boxing match of note is now Pay Per View has really turned me off as a viewer and then to make a charity fight a PPV event as well - I might've been tempted at $10.00, but $40 is too much to watch amateurs wail away at each other.

Free To Air with constant requests for donations would have been a far better option, in my opinion.
