Service Outages Reported Ahead of Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight

Just ahead of one of the biggest fights in boxing history, dozens are taking to Twitter to complain of cable outages and other problems before Saturday’s Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight.

Customers of Time Warner Cable, DirecTV and Charter have been complaining about issues. Charter acknowledged the problems on its Twitter account on Saturday.

“We are aware of the issue impacting the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao feed. We are working to resolve as soon as possible,” it wrote.

DirecTV seemed prepared, tweeting troubleshooting tips on Saturday.

Customers pay $90-$100 dollars to see the fight, which has been advertised heavily for the past few weeks. A select group of marketers are also reportedly paying about $1 million each to get their wares in front of the crowd.

The audience of the event was always expected to be massive. In 2007, approximately 2.48 million video subscribers paid to watch the similarly hyped Mayweather-Oscar de la Hoya fight.
