Just noticed that tonight's PPV is on Sky Sports 1 free of charge for those of us fans in the UK. I know this has happened before but I was just wondering whether there is any routine to how often this happens? To me it seems like lucky dip which ones are sent to Sky Sports 1 for free and which ones we have to PPV for!

Yeah, I don't know how it's worked out.

'Bigger' events usually cost.

I wasn't actually aware of this, I hadn't got round to checking. £15 saved. As for which PPV, I think they have a deal for about 4 a year. You won't get the 'Big 4.' Elimination Chamber was on Sky this year and if I remember right I think MITB was last year, so probably will be again.

I believe, this year, Sky Sports has

-Elimination Chamber
-Over the Limit
-Money in the Bank
-Night of Champions

Its been that way since the attidute era

The big 4 plus 2 more ones normally are paid
the rest are on sky sports 1

which technically is paid because you need a subscription for those channels

They used to simply alternate the PPVs between Box Office & Sky Sports, which still managed to keep the "big 4" events on Box Office, but there doesn't seem to be any particular order anymore.

I think its stems to when Channel 4 used to show PPVs. The big 4 used to be Box Office and the others Sky Sports, but Channel 4 had about 4 PPVs? The only one I remember being on there though was Backlash which is now Extreme Rules. So now the big 4, plus any that used to be on Channel 4 are now Box Office.

If you check out the sky sports website mate you can find out what ppvs are 'free' and ones which are on box office, there is more on box office than 'free' :)
