uk fans are you sick of having to stream every live ppv and impact wrestling show ?

i was on twitter during the genesis ppv and i had an argument with a certain tna official who basically told me to stop streaming the ppv. now i told this certain induvidual that mayby if we actually got the chance to watch impact live in the uk we wouldnt have to stream ppv's and tv shows.

so im asking the uk tna fans of wrestling forum to sign my petition and hopefully we can get dixie and challenge tv to change there minds
WTF?!

No because Challenge TV is now only 3 days behind and I simply watch Impact/Xplosion/the PPVS on there. Staying up til 2am can be a pain for the PPVs but other than that it's fine. Impact is even repeated 2 days later, what more do you want?

All I do is follow challenge TV and avoid this forum (usually) and the PPV wikipedia pages on the Friday saturday and sunday (trying to not see anything to do with Genesis currently but have seen one result)

Jeez, I remember the 90s and the days when I had to rely on Channel 5 to watch an hour of WCW Worldwide every week before I even had internet access at home.

You don't know how good you got it right now.

Only 492 needed!

The more I thought about this the less it made sense. OP, how come you thought the only way to have it your way was a petition>?

As a Briton, we've already got free ppvs. For an avid wrestling fan like me I'm fine streaming and downloading ppvs and Impacts because I know I'll get spoilts. For most people, the delay is no problem

I'm from the UK and have no problem with the way TNA is being shown. It's free and I'm very thankful for that.

I get around the adverts by "V+ing" (TiVo) it, and just watch it the day after its aired, fast forwarding through the adverts. Turns a 2hr show into about 1hr 20mins.


I also do this for xplosion as I only watch spin cycle so it saves me having to watch it in real time, I can just skip to the bit I want.


You can save so much time in your life if you do this with your favourite shows, so long as you aren't fussed about it being live. I know plenty of people that watch an hour long show in the hour after it aired so they can skip the ad breaks and get 20 mins of their life back!

Dixie, Challenge and anyone else involved...Thank you for treating the UK to free TNA!

To be fair, I'd say the vast majority of UK TNA fans are grateful that we get Impact, PPVs, Xplosion and (don't know if it's airing in the US at the moment) British Boot Camp on a FREE channel. If you want to watch WWE you have to pay for the privledge.

I have absolutely no problem waiting to watch any of the TNA programming because it actually fits into my own schedule far easier than WWE. I usually just watch the clips TNA upload to their website if there is anything I'm desperate to see from Impact, and I sometimes check the results of a PPV to decide if it is worth watching or if there are any specific matches I want to see.

If you are going to complain about being given free programming then I just can't fathom it. I actually think it's a fringe benefit that we UK fans CAN check for spoilers now that Impact is live, because if it turns out to be a bad show, we can choose to not watch it! Unlike our US friends who go into Impact blind about how the show is going to turn out.

If they can't do it live (1am start time here) then move it to Monday.
Or how about they make it live but it cost 15 bucks so people will stop bitching about a free product to them.

Yeah, that's the thing. I am very grateful that we get the TNA shows for free no matter what. They could, if they wanted to and it would still be fair, show them weeks behind but they don't. They do their best given their schedule and other commitments as well as baring in mind WHEN people can watch it. It's amazing their are people not grateful in the slightest, when those fans in America have to pay for it.

Let's say we get it at 1am Sunday morning for 15. We can't watch it live because we have work the next morning so we watch it Monday night - is it worth the 150+ a year just to watch the PPVs two days earlier, three days earlier? Or because it's free now, you expect it free live as well?

This has to be the stupidest thing I've ever seen on a wrestling forum. I don't think this could be beaten.
