3 Avenues For WWE Fast Lane

This weekend sees World Wrestling Entertainment introduce it's new pay-per-view, Fast Lane.

Fans in the UK and Ireland have three ways to watch the event. They can either do so via the WWE Network (which is free in February), on Sky Sports or even on Sky One.

When Sky and WWE announced a new television deal back last year, Sky announced its intent to place all twelve WWE PPVs onto Sky Box Office from 2015. We're only in the second month of the new contract and Fast Lane is on regular Sky programming.

My guess is this is a one-off because the WWE Network is gratis this month. Sky also saw the opportunity to have more eyeballs on the event with the plan to air it on Sky One in the hope that the customers ante up for WrestleMania 31 on Sky Box Office next month.

As for me - I could watch it on any of the three choices. I'm currently thinking I'll watch it on Sky One for old time's sake.

Or I might throw sentimentality out the window and just watch it on the WWE Network!

The last time a WWE/F supercard aired on Sky One would have been in the early 90s. However, they did not air live as Fast Lane will on Sunday.
