If you are a Boxing fan and you are signed up to du TV you will be able to watch “the fight of the century” live, and for free on your TV at home!
Subscribers with local carrier du will be able to watch the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. take on 8-division world champion Manny Pacquiao free-of-charge when the two meet next week in what is being billed as one of the biggest boxing matches of all times.
“It’s free and it’s at no extra cost,” said a du spokesperson on Tuesday.
The company said its subscribers can watch the fight – which airs live at 5am on Sunday – on du TV and online using their smartphones or tablets.
“Live from the MGM Grand, the blow-by-blow action is mainly available on pay-per-view to millions of viewers around the world. Not so for du home customers as they can watch the uninterrupted action with any du television package, just by tuning into channel 500 or by using the du View application,” the company said in a statement.
If you are on Etisalats network you are asked to pay 125AED on pay per view. I guess quite some Etisalat customers are not too happy about this…
