Mayweather vs. McGregor PPV Streaming Issues
After purchasing the pay-per-view fight, fans were met with error messages and broadcast outages. Dubbed “the money fight”, fans were anticipating the match between reigning champ, Floyd Mayweather and MMA fighter, Conor McGregor, to be one for the books. Viewers have filed a lawsuit in Nevada – including one case on behalf of a national class of consumers. They allege that after purchasing the pay-per-view, they were met with error messages and did not get what they paid for – a fight to remember.
Following months of heavy promotion and hype, fans hosted viewing parties for their family and friends expecting it to be a memorable experience. Instead fans that purchased the pay-per-view were prevented from viewing the fight due to technical difficulties and consistent interruptions. The fight is considered one of the highest priced events of any kind sold in pay-per-view history.
