Re: Mayweather vs Pacquiao on TV Anywhere

Hi jeltuh053,

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. 

 

The fight is available to buy via the box office on your TiVo®. 

 

It won't be available to purchase via TV Anywhere Smiley Sad

 

Thanks,

Hi jeltuh053,

 

Apologies, I should have made it more clear for you. 

 

No, the fight will not be available to purchase or view via anything other than your TiVo®.

 

Thanks,

Re: Mayweather vs Pacquiao on TV Anywhere

I rang up last night asking the same question to be told I could. The girl checked twice for me and said it wouldn't be a problem I would simply purchase the fight then log into TV anywhere to watch it via my laptop so I can load it on to my big screen now I have friends coming around who won't fit into my small living room to watch it on the tele. Is there no other way I can view the fight via my laptop so I can project onto the big screen? Little disappointed to read this after spending 15 minutes on the phone last night to be told it is acheivable and now being told it isn't possible.

Re: Mayweather vs Pacquiao on TV Anywhere

Hi lauraspence321,

 

Thanks for your post and apologies for the mis information regarding the fight. 

 

There are 2 things i'd like to let you know about here. 

 

1) The fight can only be purchased and watched via your TiVo®, V+ or V HD box. It can not be watched via TV Anywhere nor purchased via it. 

 

2) TV Anywhere has a built in security feature that produces an error when you try to project the stream to another screen. TV Anywhere is for you to watch via the device itself.

 

I hope this clears up any misunderstandings.

 

Thanks,

Re: Mayweather vs Pacquiao on TV Anywhere

I was also told that i could watch this and as i was travelling away from home i purchased the fight for the £19.95 and now can't watch it. Yet again, further poor service from Virgin Media and adds to my reasons as to why i should leave!

Re: Mayweather vs Pacquiao on TV Anywhere

This is criminal from Virgin! In the age of tablets, mobile phones WiFi and 4G networks, the biggest boxing match this century can't be watched online.

 

Complete farce. The most insane thing is despite the US court order to ban streams, they will pop up everywhere, its like if you want to stop pirates, offer the customer a better option. Like iTunes did versus Napster, if not, people will end up pirating streams anyway.
