Pay Per View(PPV) means watching an event or show or a live match(boxing, martial arts, etc.) based on a pay per view. So, if you want to see a boxing match, you will pay only for that match, nothing else.
However, there is a limited list of sports you can enjoy on PPV. The reason behind that is also simple. Paying for a monthly or yearly subscription when there will be only three to four matches per year does not make much sense. So, PPV is not available for Soccer, Cricket, Baseball, etc. However, you can buy PPV for,
Highly anticipated or big boxing matches are rare. These are hyped-up occasions, and fans give big bucks to stream them. It also makes more sense to use PPV for such an event. You can feel the action live with other fans.
Still, there are a lot of risks that come with Pay Per Views (especially boxing), like:
- You do not know if it is worth it
If you pay big bucks to watch a fight that ends in one or two rounds, either by a DQ or some other reason, you will not be happy. This scenario occurred in a boxing match between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield. The PPV for this match was $50, and fans just saw three rounds of the fight ended by a bite.
You can also watch a UFC match on PPV. You have to buy an ESPN+ subscription since it is the only outlet to stream live UFC Pay Per View this year. It costs 7$ for a monthly ESPN+ subscription, and a UFC PPV ticket costs $75. There are also some bundle packages available that can give you both ESPN+ and UFC PPV for as low as $100.
Though some might not consider it a sport in the traditional sense, I will still add it to this list. You can see events like WrestleMania, Backlash, Hell in a Cell, Money in the Bank, etc.
Sometimes you can also see a live concert with a PPV card or subscription. The largest-ever PPV concert was broadcasted live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City. The Allman Brothers Band performed for their 40th-anniversary show. The gross income was more than $300,000.
How to get PPV?
You can get PPV on several different platforms like Android, Apple, PS4, Chromecast, Roku, Amazon FireStick, Smart TVs, etc. If you want to get a PPV for a lower price, there are some ways you can do it.
For example, let’s say you are currently in the USA. You want to stream a live match on your FireStick that is going to be in your country. You can change your location to a different country where this PPV is available.
To change your location, you can use a VPN like ExpressVPN, NordVPN, etc. You can download and install it from Amazon Playstore. You can also be watching free PPV on Amazon Fire TV Stick if you are lucky.
You can use third-party websites like,
- VIPRow Sports,

to watch PPV on Amazon Firestick for free. However, don’t expect a similar quality to official apps or websites.
You can also get PPV as well as live TV channels, on-demand, movie content from IPTV services. You will have to pay a monthly fee, but it is worth it. You can either choose a legal IPTV provider or an unverified IPTV provider.
There are some legal IPTV providers like,
