They thought they were slick … dozens of websites aiming to livestream the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight for free.
But Showtime is stopping the potential pirates with a big, fat lawsuit.
The network is ripping a page from the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao playbook — where they scouted out a bunch of potential illegal streaming sites and hit ’em with a legal blow before the fight.
There’s obviously a TON of cash on the line — some say the fight could bring in more than $500 MILLION … so, they are not looking to let anyone skim from their pockets.
In the suit, filed in federal court, Showtime is asking a judge to issue an injunction to block the sites from streaming the August 26 fight — and they’ll probably get it.
