I’m going to be watching Pacquiao vs Clottey via PLDT’s Watchpad hoping that the service lives up to its promise of live stream of the Pacquiao vs Clottey fight. I hope it doesnt fail like the last Pacquiao fight vs Cotto.

9 am Update: It doesnt look good for the PLDT Watchpad service as i was experiencing lag as well as lengthy buffering times on the day of Pacquiao vs Clottey. It must be the thousands of people trying to connect nationwide. For those asking, my connection is more than the 768kbps required to view HQ videos (im not even on the hq content yet) on PLDT watchpad. Attaching my dsl speedtest results on PLDT’s speedtest.
I’ll try to post other sites that show live free web streaming of the Pacquiao vs Clottey fight but i wont be doing a liveblog like in the previous Pacquiao fights.
See you guys for Pacquiao vs Clottey in a few hours. Hope the live web streaming via PLDT Watchpad works *crosses fingers*
