Why do I need a solution? I don't work in the industry.

That's fair, the only problem is that even when Sky rid themselves of PPV some unscrupulous bastards (Primetime) will crop up and fill the void left, but with the production values of an 80's gameshow, and for the same price Sky charged, pushing the sport even further away from the public eye. At least with a Sky PPV they promote the shit out of it on SSN. My mates didn't even know Khan had a fight coming up when he was on Primetime.


EDIT: Multiple errors, read it back and it made zero sense.
