UFC 78 not on HD PPV?

Well, according to Starchoice's TV listings they aren't showing UFC 78 on their HD PPV channel, why the heck not? I was looking forward to watching it in HD. Didn't the info on the channel say they would be playing events on that channel also?

Has anyone confirmed this with a Starchoice rep?

The reason is Star Choice is embarrased to show this 2nd rate card in HD. This is really a Ultimate Fight Night card. Shame on UFC.


errrr. I will still order, like I always do. But still not happy with the card.

I agree, the card isn't that great however I will still order it like I always do haha.



Back on topic, I just noticed that on the Starchoice website TV listings it seems to be all wrong. They are showing Fantastic Four as playing now on the listings however on the TV guide it is showing completely different movies (Condemed and Death Proof.)

So I'm just going to wait another day and I should be able to skip ahead far enough in the guide to see what is playing saturday night on HD PPV.

Looks like they are showing a movie instead of the UFC PPV:

Grindhouse Presents: Planet Terror
November 17th 8:00 PM.

Maybe we will have better luck next month.

Funny, they specifically mention while waiting on the phone that you'll be able to watch UFC fights and other events in HD for a $10 premium. Now it didn't say this particular fight was going to be in HD, but they are still promoting it.

There was an email sent to all staff today informing us that the UFC PPV this weekend is not in HD.
