PPV buyers have difficulties watching Mayweather-Pacquiao fight

Sunday May 3rd, 2015

Many people have been looking forward to watching "The Fight of the Century" between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao since it was announced in late February, but according to tweets on Saturday, a lot of people are having issues with their pay-per-view.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, some customers of Cox, Time Warner, DirecTV, Charter, AT&T and Optimum were having difficulties ordering or playing the fight. 

HBO vice president Mark Taffet told SI's Chris Mannix that due to the issues ordering from TWC, the "broadcast will be slowed down" to give TWC time to rectify. He said there "could be about 45-minutes of fill time before the main event" and that the technical difficulties were nationwide.

The fight can be ordered for $90 for the standard definition feed and $100 for high definition. 

You can follow along with the fight on SI.com's live blog.

TWC and Charter have tweeted they are working to resolve the issues.
