      So I don't have cable or directv.

      I'd like to catch the fight next week.

      Is there any kind of streaming service that will allow me to watch the event live without having to go through the cable company? Something maybe on roku, amazon, via PS3, etc...

      Bonus for HD content.

      Welcome to my world.

      I just go to a sports bar and watch it. Most sports bars will show big fight nights like UFC. Some will charge a cover - I don't go to those anymore

      People still watch boxing? You know that shiz is more staged than the WWE right?

      The point is I'd like to know if there's anything out there that allows me to stream a live PPV event to my TV without having to subscribe to cable or Dave.

      I'll pay for the event, I just don't want a subscription attached to it.

      You can often find people streaming events at justin.tv. The quality will vary wildly. I still believe your best bet is to call local sports bars and see if anyone is going to show it.

      Thanks, but I'm not interested in going to a bar for this or any other event.
