Are you guy's going to support TNA and order the PPV? I hope so, they defiantly deserve it, I feel like TNA is keeping alot of us old school wrestling fans [ WWF WCW ECW ] from giving up with Pro Wrestling period. Especially with the shape dub dub wee is in these days.

I think most people here are going to watch a stream online! I won't watch it livr anyways because in Germany it will start at 2 a.m.

I'll watch it on Monday on the internet!

as long as there is the ability to stream a PPV free online, there are going to be a lot of people who will just watch it for free. if you're watching it by yourself why pay for it when you can get it for free?
can't TNA (or other sports/entertainment) do something to stop free streaming? seems like it should be illegal for a website to stream a PAY per view for free.

Ultimately TNA should give incentive for people to buy instead of stream.

For Bound For Glory they should of had something like "If you buy Bound For Glory this year and send a copy of your reciept to us via E-Mail you will be able to watch every single TNA Bound For Glory show for 1 week on TNA Video Service"

Hell, Give away left over merchandise that don't people want anymore. Jeff Hardy arm bands. People are more likely to buy the PPV if they're going to be given something for nothing.

Yes. I can't miss Bully vs. AJ and Sting vs. Magnus. Last year's BFG was so amazing live that I can't miss it live this year.

I've thought about this as well but was thinking more along the lines of order such and such pay per view and send us your receipt and you will get a copy of the DVD when it is released.

I don't think I am. Ordered last year's and the two years before. I am sure the matches here will be top notch...but I am not sold on any feud, or storyline...which most matches kind of do not have a real backdrop or storyline anyways.

I thought about that also but that way if the fans really enjoy the Pay Per View TNA won't get an extra 20-30 bucks from the DVD sales.

I think it'd be a good idea to offer past Bound For Glory PPV DVD's though. Maybe if you buy this years Bound For Glory you get a DVD copy of TNA Bound For Glory 2005 for free.

That would be a good idea as well and actually makes more sense than giving the DVD out for the new one for the reason you mentioned and also they wouldn't have to wait for the DVD to come out. It just seems to me that TNA needs to do something as an incentive for people to buy the PPV instead of streaming for free online. I would let them choose what DVD they wanted in that line of PPV's as some they may already own if you say purchase so and so PPV and get a particular DVD for free.

Yes, I just ordered it.

I paid for all three big TNA PPVs this year. 12,99 € really is a great price.

thats a terrible reason to buy a PPV

'to support them'

if you enjoy the product and are excited about the card, then yeah, go for it. but buying a ppv as an act of solidarity or defiance to the WWE? wtf?

You people should be ashamed of yourselves, a real tna fan contributes atleast once a year.people nagging about the card wont ever be happy. The match ups ain't getting any better.

Usually I care x amount for a whole ppv, but this time I care 2x for the main event alone. For me, that's reason enough to justify ordering it.

I do applaud TNA for getting A LOT better. seriously lookinforward to it these last few weeks.

But it's not that good that I wanna order the PPV.

WWE is on fire right now and I only get five or six of THEIR PPVs a year.

In the future though, who knows? I think TNA in it's current direction could one day compete for more PPV purchuses.

The past two years, I've gone to the theater to watch BFG. But I see no announcement for theaters this year. With TNA shutting down their on-demand site. I have no way to buy BFG to stream online. Don't think you can stream thru Youtube and pay for it.

Lots of good points on how to increase buyrates. Ill be honest i stream some PPVs. I get that its tough to order PPVs every month at 55 bucks [insert product] and half the time its not worth it. But with TNA i know im getting my moneys worth every single time. GREAT WRESTLING and unpredictability. On top of that their monthly PPVs are 15 bucks [cant beat that] and the big four which have been real good and AFFORDABLE. Bottomline is us true fans should support this PPV even if you usually stream it. off topic i was at SLAMMIVERSARY live in Boston and that shit was SICK just thinking of that PPV and CROWD gives me chills.

There should be some way to order it online. Perhaps from their official website? You shoukd contact the co pany through the site if it isn't mentioned anywhere.

The internet is a big thing these days. I's be surprised if you can't order it on the web somewhere.
