    I had plus installed a few weeks ago.
    I wondered what the extra charge was on our bill.
    When I phoned Sky I was told that when the engineer plugged the phone line into box it sent a signal out then I got the bill.

    Surely they would have picked this up before?
    Im not sure if paid before or not.

    Anyone else had this???

    The PPV data is stored until such time it can be sent to SKY via the phone line, many people use up their credit and make sure there is no phone connection so the bill can't be sent.
    At some future time the smartcard is used in a STB with a phone connection and the data is sent to SKY and then the bill arrives.

    Worth checking your bank statements if you still have them just to confirm you haven't already paid but since you know you did watch it then it's likely this is the first time the billing has been processed.

    During my first year with Sky, with the phone line always connected, I got billed for a PPV event 6 MONTHS AFTER IT HAPPENED! I'm not sure what happened there.
