A Showtime spokesperson also attested to the issue and said staff were actively addressing the issue. “We are aware that some customers had difficulty accessing tonight’s Pay Per View event on SHOWTIME.com. We are working diligently to resolve the issue and will repair customers appropriately, ”the spokesperson said.
The main card for all four fights was scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. EST. However, many users experience blackouts for up to an hour and 15 minutes after the start of the event, with some calling on the streamer to delay fights or reimburse.
