  1. I am trying to watch the fight outside via a projector. What are my best options? Sling TV through my Fire TV or should I hook the projector to my laptop via HDMI cable and purchase thru Showtime PPV website? NOTE: i tried the UFC APP on fire tv once and it was slow and sometimes cut out, and i have very fast internet FYI. I don’t want to make that same mistake.

      You can probably do Sling TV through your Fire TV, and hook your Fire TV up to the projector (assuming there’s an HDMI input)
