Wow... lost for words here. You obviously have no idea how the UK TV licence(Tax) works.

You pay your TV licence (140 a year) per household regardless of how many TVs you own and regardless of what channels you watch or subscribe to. Even if you dont have Sky (Satellite TV) you still pay the licence.

That Licence pays for the BBC which offers 4-5 channels of mostly great TV shows, with no adverts or commercials. It also gives us access to many BBC national, and local radio stations as well as an excellent online 'catchup' facility.

Oh i see. That's fair enought. Here in Portugal everyone that pays a electricity bill has to pay a multimedia fee even if you don't watch tv or listen to the radio, whatever...

Back on topic, i feeling like buying 154, if only i could know if i'm gonna be awake for the ME. :P

And then there was the time when I was shamed after Machida/Shogun 2.
Yeah I would much rather watch alone or with a couple friends then watch it at BWW or some bar. For multiple reasons. For one at home I can record it if I order through my cable company or if I order on Xbox LIVE I can replay the event for 24 hrs so if any of my buddies missed some epic fight I can replay it for them. Not just that but I'm not a drinker(alcohol), I'm a smoker(weed) and that is not accepted in public lol. Just like you mentioned, I hate the morons that don't know shit saying dumb shit during the fights. Even worse when they are drunk.
