    I can smile when its raining.
    I watched a UFC on the online UFC deal, it wasn't bad, my connection was good enough to get decent quality, and I could still watch tv during the interviews with Mandy Moore... Oh and I could pad my post count in the live spoiler thread.

    yahoo streaming is good, but its nothing compared to watching ppv on a tv

    they streamed a few strikeforce events and i never had a problem

    the UFC stream was OK.. but it could have been ALOT better. I wish Yahoo could match the HD quality ABC streams.

    nope, I don't :hs:

    I just can't justify a $40 card to watch on my computer by myself, I might as well go out for that much

    I can drop $40 on a card, but I don't feel like I should unless I can watch it on a big TV
     
  22. The stream was very good quality, loaded up very rapidly, looked great on my projector. One great thing is that you can continue to watch it for 24 hours after the event (more like 27 hours, really) and they even kind of seperated it into the individual fights, and you could skip around wherever you wanted pretty quickly, which was great and I don't think you can do with normal PPV (unless you DVR).

    As previously stated, I don't have cable or a tv, I just have my computer hooked up to a projector, which only does 480p, but does it BIG.
