There is a free Mayweather Pacquiao option for users who are willing to jump through a hoop and a way to save $50 if you plan to drink a lot of beer while you watch the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight this weekend.
Here’s what you need to know about the Mayweather Pacquiao PPV deals that you can still get if you are quick. None of these are as good as the fact that the whole country of Mexico can watch Mayweather and Pacquiao box free of charge
It’s going to be tough to find a bar to watch the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight because of the steep costs to show it in public, and even Buffalo Wild Wings is not going to show the boxing match in most locations. Where you can watch it there will be a $20 cover charge, so watching at home on Pay Per View is a cheaper option with a few friends.
Here’s how you can legally watch Mayweather vs Pacquiao free on Pay Per View or how you can save $50 if you don’t want to jump through that hoop.
The Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight pay per view starts around 9 PM eastern but the fight won’t actually start until around 11:30 Eastern.
You may be tempted to look for a free Mayweather vs Pacquiao stream online or on your iPad, but don’t count on much success. TorrentFreak reports that HBO and Showtime already filed suit against two sites that were preparing to let users,” Watch Mayweather vs Pacquiao Online free.” One of the websites took down the offer, and it looks like HBO and Showtime are serious about preventing live streams of the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight.
Watch Mayweather vs Pacquiao Free
The only way you can reliably watch Mayweather vs Pacquiao free is to switch to Dish Network. This may not be an option for every user, but if you are tempted to switch anyway, this is a $100 bonus for your trouble. The other catch is that you need to sign a two year agreement with DISH, so you can’t get the service just for the fight. The DISH site explains,
“Mayweather vs. Pacquaio offer ends 5/1/15. SAP Secondary audio feed available. Available on select HD channels. All Offers require 24-month commitment and credit qualification”
If you want this deal, you should sign up very soon so you can get the service installed in time for the fight. You must enter code BOXING in the form when you checkout. Here is more information about how you can watch Mayweather vs. Pacquaio free, with the switch.
Save $50 on Mayweather vs Pacquiao
Another option if you don’t want to switch to DISH is to buy a lot of Tecate. Owned by Heineken, Tecate is the official beer sponsor of the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight and to celebrate is offering up a big mail in rebate deal. Tecate tells EPSN that shoppers can save $15, $30 or $50 depending how much Tecate they buy.
“Customers can save $15 with the purchase of one Tecate or Tecate Light 18-pack, $30 with the purchase of two 18-packs, or $50 with the purchase of three.”
Shoppers will find the mail in rebate form at stores selling Tecate. The beer is primarily sold in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas. If you are outside these areas or just need to find a store that sells it, you can use Beermenus on your phone or computer to find a place that sells Tecate near you.
Hopefully Manny Pacquiao fares better against Floyd Mayweather Jr than the HP TouchPad with WebOS did against the iPad and Android.
