Pay-per-view is latest heavyweight in boxing Barry Horn (dallasnews).

hbo-boxing-schedule-ppv-2010-pay-per-view-boxingAn absolutely free 12-round pay-per-view primer in advance of tonight’s Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey welterweight title fight at Cowboys Stadium, available on HBO Pay-Per-View at the suggested retail price of $49.95:

1 HBO pioneered national pay-per-view in 1991 with an Evander Holyfield-George Foreman heavyweight championship bout from Atlantic City, N.J. Although the fight was available in only 15 million homes, it generated 1.45 million buys at $35.95. It remains the fifth-most purchased fight in boxing history. The 8 percent buy rate may never be equaled.

2 Anyone who bought that fight had to go to a cable distributor and pick up a special receiver box that had to be returned the next week. How 1990s.

3 Today, pay-per-view is available in 40 million cable homes, 30 million satellite homes and 5 million teleco homes supplied by the likes of Verizon Fios and AT&T U-Verse.

4 Major fights left free television before pay-per-view became available in homes. Fights were shown in bars, arenas and theaters on closed circuit, big-screen televisions. The pictures were often blurred, and the beer was expensive.

5 Mark Taffet, the president of HBO P-P-V, wrote the original business plan for the cable network, which christened the experiment TVKO. He will be at Cowboys Stadium to oversee tonight’s presentation. “Economics and technology created the opportunity,” Taffet says. “You can’t stop technology.”

6 Taffet says research shows that on average, pay-per-view boxing attracts five to eight viewers per household. Cheaper than going out to the movies.

7 The Oscar De La Hoya-Floyd Mayweather Jr. welterweight title bout in May 2007 is the reigning heavyweight champion of pay-per-view. It attracted 2.4 million buys and grossed $134.4 million in revenue.

8 Mike Tyson was pay-per-view’s heavyweight star, appearing in three of the top five offerings.

9 Pacquiao has succeeded De La Hoya as the pay-per-view champion. The business was worried when Pacquiao retired De La Hoya in a fight that drew 1.25 million buys. Pacquiao’s last two fights, however, have averaged 1 million buys. A Pacquiao-Mayweather match could have challenged the record of 2.4 million.

10 California and Texas lead the nation in buys for Pacquiao fights. The two states are perennial pay-per-view champions.

11 Taffet says that Cowboys Stadium will help sell Pacquiao-Clottey to some homes. “The stadium is already synonymous with big events. People have heard so much about the stadium, it will impact people favorably about the event. … We will focus on bringing the stadium to consumers’ living rooms,” he said.

12 Taffet won’t make any predictions about the number of buys for tonight’s card. But I will. I’ll say 600,000, which translates into $30 million. That will send the fighters, promoters and pay-per-view folks home happy.

Final Four finale?

This could be the CBS swan song as the home of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, which tips off next week. The NCAA and CBS are in the tail end of their 11-year, $6 billion contract that allows the home of student-athletes to bow out of the final three years of the deal. The Final Fours of 2011, 2012, 2013 and beyond could be up for bid.

Of course, CBS wasn’t all that na├»ve when it agreed to the current deal. The contract is back-loaded, which means payments have not been equal all years. The final three years are worth a hefty $2.1 billion to the NCAA.

Still, you can be sure that the NCAA will examine opting out to see just how much cable money ESPN would be willing to put up. Of course, CBS can get in on the bidding as well. It probably will need a cable partner to make a new deal work financially. That would be Turner Sports.

A new, more expensive TV contract probably guarantees an expanded field. A tournament with 96 teams means more games, which translates into more programming for television. Rest assured, if the NCAA jumps to another network, unlike student-athletes who transfer, the money-making tournament will not have to sit out a season.

Around the Horn

The Stars’ streak of 1,101 consecutive televised games (including 127 in the playoffs) ends Sunday when they host Colorado at 2 p.m. NBC could have picked up the game but decided not to. None of the struggling Stars’ local television partners were interested either. Local NHL Center Ice customers will be able to watch Sunday via the Colorado feed. The NHL has lifted the blackout because there is no local broadcast. … ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary series is back Sunday at 8 p.m. The latest installment is “Reggie Miller vs. the New York Knicks.” It details the rivalry the Indiana Pacers guard had with the Knicks during the 1994 and 1995 NBA playoffs. … ESPN has added Nomar Garciaparra to its legion of baseball analysts. In his playing days, the former Red Sox shortstop, who finished up with the Cubs, Dodgers and A’s, was a curmudgeon to the media on and off camera. He never appeared very witty. Bet this doesn’t work. … Jim Lampley, Max Kellerman, Emanuel Steward and Harold Lederman will call HBO’s Pacquiao-Clottey fight on pay-per-view. The televised undercard starts at 8 p.m., with the main event at about 10:15 p.m.

Mavericks scoring in the ratings, too

Amazing what a double-digit win streak can do for a team in the ratings column. Monday’s game against the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves was the highest-rated Mavericks telecast on Fox Sports Southwest in almost three years. It averaged a 4.1 rating, which translates to a smidge more than 105,000 homes.

Then Wednesday’s game against the miserable New Jersey Nets averaged a 4.0 rating, a smidge fewer than 105,000 homes.

Recall that the Mavericks lost their first game after the All-Star break to the Oklahoma City Thunder and have since reeled off 13 consecutive victories.

Mavericks’ average cable rating before the All-Star break: 2.1 (54,000 homes).Mavericks’ average cable rating since the break: 3.1 (79,000 homes).
