    UK Over the limit coverage

    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.
    Smell That!

    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.
