If you’re anywhere and just want to try to stream the match for free (not that we’d advise that—HBO and Showtime plan to make a lot of money off this battle, and we wouldn’t want you to chip away at their profits): You could try setting up a VPN in one of the countries where the fight is airing free-of-charge. Say, the Philippines, where the fight is free on ABS-CBN. The fight is also free in Colombia, China, Dubai, France, Mexico, South Africa, and Thailand. (Hit the previous link to find out which channels will be hosting; you may need to login to the country’s respective cable provider in order to access the channel, so there’s another potential cost.) PureVPN also told me that Peru will have the fight for free, via the Frecuencia Latina network. HideMyAss is yet another provider that has “a lot of servers in a lot of different locations,” including many of the aforementioned countries.
Anyone know where I can find a VPN for the Philippines to get some ABS-CBN goodness!?
Update: Looks like TVOne in Jakata will be broadcasting the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight so as long as you can VPN there, you shold be set?
