The Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor live stream info and TV details ahead of probably the most hyped fight in history.
The events organizers of most likely the biggest sporting event of 2017 have taken elaborate measures to stop pirate streaming websites from stealing the Mayweather vs McGregor fight and streaming it for free – with different court injunctions put in place this week.
There is a number of legal and legitimate ways the fight can still be live streamed online however, depending what part of the world you are in and how you are looking to purchase the event.
First lets start off with the US.
The broadcaster carrying the event Showtime have delved deeper into the digital world with this event with UFC President Dana White saying this week that tonight’s fight will be a first for boxing in that it will have the same level of digital access that a UFC event would.
Although White and the UFC are neither involved promotion-wise or in the production of the event tonight, no doubt knowledge was shared with Showtime and Mayweather Promotions in this regard.
So, the fight will be available to stream online in two ways tonight for those who have bought the event (at $99.99 in high definition or $88.99 in standard definition):
(1) Via the Showtime Sports app available in iTunes.
(2) To stream via Showtimeppv.com
For those in the UK and Ireland, it will be available online to stream to those purchasing via Sky Sports Box Office for £19.95 or €24.95 on the Skysports.com website with full details available there.
The fight will be available above on most devices whether smartphone, tablet or desktop.
For viewers in Ireland also looking to purchase the fight on a means outside of Sky Box Office, you can also purchase it via Virgin Media but there might be a slight extra charge for purchasing on the day of the fight.
The bout itself should get underway no later than 9pm local time in Las Vegas – which is 12am Sunday morning ET time in the US – which is 5am Sunday morning in the UK and Ireland.
