We Viewed the Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout With Verizon PPV
We put in our Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout PPV order with Verizon in the afternoon since we were having a family viewing party at our home that evening.
Millions tuned in to watch Floyd Mayweather Jr. take on Manny Pacquiao in what was billed as the fight of the century.
According to Social Media posts many PPV (Pay Per view) customers hoping to watch the long awaited Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout had difficulties ordering the fight due to heavy subscriber demand that became difficult to fulfill.
We Viewed the Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout With Verizon PPV without a hitch in the delivery of service.
HBO and Showtime tried to slow down the pace of the fights by interviewing A-list stars in the audience and showing footage of the boxer’s training while subscribers were trying to order the PPV bout.
Many Carriers acknowledged the PPV purchase issues and were dialoguing with their customers via Twitter to help remedy what they could.
“HBO, one of the networks carrying the fight, told The New York Times shortly after reports of PPV issues began surfacing on social media that it has received more orders for this than any other event in its history.”
My recommendation, when a long-anticipated event will be broadcasted via Pay Per View is to place your order for the event hours in advance.
If you are a Verizon Customer like me; Verizon has a Support Page to help troubleshoot if you encounter any difficulties placing your On Demand and Pay Per View Order.
