You don't need to subscribe to HBO to get an HBO PPV event.
The reason they have HBO PPV's for Boxing is because most of the top fighters have contracts with HBO. It's just another revenue stream for HBO. They can charge you twice if there is enough demand for the fight. Occasionally u will see a Showtime PPV. It's more of a formality.
HBO is only 5$ a month for 10 chanels. for those of you who are crying about having to upgrade your packages
