UFC 246 - Eir TV

Hi there,

Does anyone know how to watch the ppv next weekend with eir TV? I have tried searching for it but it's very vague. I have found a website saying there are BT box office channels on channels number 490 and 491 but is this only on sky?

BT box office through sky is the only legit option

A fine sea fairing craft will also do the job just fine.

Do the prelims still show for free and then the main card on PPV?

Or do you have to pay for the whole lot?

I'm just about to - is it they give you access to a new channel?

I'm supposed to have people calling over so I'd like to see it working before 1am when they're here!

In a very strange turn of events, I can't get on to chat, mentioned this to the group citing that support hours had ended & one of the lads checked on his mobile, got straight through to chat, I provided the details and it's been added....but very odd

What is showing on the channel for you? Mine is still saying I don't have the subscription and to ring a number, they're a disaster being honest I called the number today and hung up after 20 mins of waiting, had to order it through chat then.
