Yet. Despite rumors that HDNet was a possible carrier and had a rumored deal to air Affliction, HDNet executives have confirmed those rumors as false. There is a chance, however, that a deal could be made at some point down the road.

I would prefer it to air on PPV,or if it is on HDNET,show it on PPV as well,so people who don't have HD tvs can watch it live as well.

I think they're lookin for a place like HDNet to show the prelims, but the main card will be PPV

You don't have to have an HD TV to watch HD channels. You can still watch them, they'll just look like the rest of you channels. PM me if you need to know more.

I think they need to do PPV. With all the money they are paying these fighters for this one card, they have to make money off this event other than ticket sales.

well, the vice president said on Inside MMA that they were looking to air the undercard (as a teaser) on HDnet, and have the main card on PPV.
