How to watch pay per view events on Virgin Media

Watch premium live sport and other events for a one-off fee on your Virgin Media TV.

What is pay per view?

Pay per view does exactly what it says on the tin – customers pay a one-off fee to tune in to individual events. Available on your Virgin TV, we bring you the best in pay per view boxing, mixed martial arts, wresting and more from Sky Sports and TNT Sports.

How does pay per view work?

If your account is up to date, you can order most pay per view events up to 5 days before they broadcast. Buy your chosen Live Event from your Virgin TV account and get ready to watch it live, or on repeat the following working day.

If you’ve already missed the event, not to worry, as you can still order the repeat and watch it there and then, from the comfort of your own sofa.

Please be sure to check any scheduling details at the point of purchase and note that pay per view events cannot be recorded on your Virgin TV box.

How to order a pay per view event on Virgin Media?

To order a pay per view event, you must have a TiVo®, Virgin TV V6 (powered by TiVo®), Virgin TV 360 or a Stream box.

Instructions for our different TV boxes vary slightly, so please find your TV box and its corresponding instructions below:

How to watch a pay per view event on another Virgin TV box?

If you have a TiVo, V6 or 360 box, you can watch your pay per view event on another TV box, rather than the one you bought it on, provided it’s the same generation of box associated with your account.

For example, if you’re a Virgin TV 360 customer, you can view your pay per view events on any second 360 box associated with your account.
