By now, you know that Manny Pacquiao is officially a legend of boxing via a TKO win over “The Golden Boy” Oscar Dela Hoya. People all over the Philippines were glued on their screens, either on delayed telecast free TV or on live broadcast on Cinemas. How did we watched it?
The cinema, with average P500/head, seems too much.
The commercial over-loaded free tv is boring.
SkyCable didn’t get the rights for a pay-per-view.
Is there another alternative? Looks like there was. MyTV+Handycam = free “Pirated DVD” quality pay-per-view.
Joy’s cellphone, N92, is still loaded with free-for-now myTV. It features Solar Access that would show the fight live. But what if I have a bunch of guys with me? Shall we just watch it though that small screen. No way! So, the work around: I got our handy cam, point it to the small cellphone screen and connected it to our TV set!
Another shot of the set up.
Here’s how it looks like on TV.
The happy viewers: family and a bunch of college buds.
