Dish to netcast Pacquiao-Mosley Fight

Dish Network will broadcast the upcoming Pacquiao-Mosley fight online for subscribers, but the netcast comes at a steep price. Dish will ask $54.99 for the pay-per-view event online, the same amount they will ask for the standard-definition television broadcast.

This is a first for Dish, and most likely not the last. But asking $54.99 for a “personal viewing” of the event on a PC is way too much. Doesn’t Dish realize pay-per-view fights are a social event and in many cases the cost is split between viewers? Don’t they realize that huddling around a laptop isn’t exactly the optimal way for boxing fans watch a fight of this magnitude?

Sure, if the online pay-per-view were cheaper you could output the stream to your TV and save a few bucks, but the quality would be subpar — even in what some service providers call “HD” quality.

On TV, Dish will offer the fight in SD on channel 454 for $54.99. For the HD version on channels 455 or 472, Dish will ask $64.99.

The Manny Pacquiao vs. “Sugar” Shane Mosley fight will take place on Saturday May 7, 2011, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
