  Pacquiao-Mayweatther pay-per-view

The Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao spectacle happened on May 2 in Las Vegas. As the boxing pros predicted, it was the richest fight in history.

Since the event was a must-see for every sports aficionado there were many worldwide broadcasts available. Also on the Caribbean Islands! Together with the Sportsmax TV we were powering the pay-per-view access to the fight, in order to delight all boxing fans on the Caribbean.

We’re extremely thrilled that we were a part of this most anticipated boxing fight that we geo-blocked outside of the Caribbean region for the Sportsmax TVAfter the Fifa world cup pay-per-view we did together back in 2014, the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight was our another joint project (and very successful!).  Again, we received a very positive feedback from Jamie Ranston – Interactive Media Director at  CGR Communications, Jamaican media agency that coordinated the Sportsmax TV implementation:
Everything went well. As usual we were very happy with the service from Cleeng. Response time from the team was on spot. No complaints from us. I was really happy we could get it all done within the short space of time given. Looking forward to the next pay-per-view event with Cleeng! 
The setup of the e-commerce environment for the Sportsmax TV took us only a few days - a great proof that organizing a massive sporting pay-per-view for demanding audiences doesn’t have to take months of preparation.
