HBO and Showtime's worst nightmares are coming true. Their Pay-Per-View broadcast of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight is getting so much traffic that it's literally breaking the feed.

Per Darren Rovell, reports are coming in that customers are not only having difficulties just ordering the fight, but those who have already purchased it are experiencing frozen feeds and the screen going completely black. Some Direct TV customers are getting a message saying "We're sorry but this is not available within the next 14 days."

Do a quick search on Twitter and you'll find teems of people complaining about issues attempting to watch the fight. It appears Time Warner Cable and Comcast are the biggest offenders so far. 

Let's hope this all gets shored up by 11 p.m. eastern, when the main event starts.
