More on TNA/WWE UK Ratings Data
Thanks to Lee Hardy for sending this in:
Just a note on the UK ratings on Wrestlezone. Both Raw and Smackdown are usually shown on Sky Sports 3 & 4, the only way to get these channels is to buy Sky Sports 1 & 2, then 3 & 4 are added extra for free.
To get all the 4 sky sports channels will cost an extra £20 a month on top of the most basic package Sky offer which is £20 a month, £40 in total.
Challenge, where TNA is shown free to air, all you need is a free view box, which you can get for around £20 as a one off purchase. All TNA ppvs are also shown on Challenge free of charge.
Don't know how this compares to the US. One note however is UK WWE ppvs are £14.95 (i believe its about $50 in US) and roughly 50% are shown on the standard sports channels. Last few ppvs for example money in bank and night of champions were no extra cost, with summerslam and upcoming hell in cell being on ppv.
