I see that non-live On Demand streamed video are severely affected (animation are slow and the images are pixelating) but I'm not sure if a live sports broadcast will be affected.

I believe that PPV is done using a QAM TV channel, not IP (like VOD).  If you are tuning to a channel for your PPV event then it has nothing to do with your Internet speed - it is carried on a totally different optical wavelength and not IP delivered.
