Mayweather Vs McGregor is set to be the highest grossing boxing match of all time – in no small part due to the inflated price of tickets. Purchasing a live stream of the match will set you back $59.95. Unless, that is, you take advantage of a Foxtel streaming loophole that brings the price down to under $30. Here’s how it’s done…
In Australia, a single pay-per-view (PPV) for Mayweather Vs McGregor costs $59.95, whether you purchase on Foxtel Now, UFC TV or the Main Event page.
However, Foxtel has charitably allowed customers to connect to two different phones or computers at the same time. Here’s the relevant information from Foxtel’s Main Event support page:
Can I watch from different computers or phones at the same time?
Yes, when you registered/purchased on one computer/tablet/phone you can simply use the same credentials to watch on another device. You should bear in mind your access can be restricted when our systems detect abuse. To avoid your account being cut off, don’t use more than 2 different devices just before and during the event.
The key takeaway is in the final sentence: “don’t use more than 2 different devices.” That means using two devices simultaneously is A-OK.
In other words, you can purchase a single PPV, split the costs with a friend and still watch in your separate houses. This brings the cost down to a slightly more palatable $29.97 each. All you need to do now is find a like-minded sports fan before the match begins. Good luck!
