Impact Wrestling’s New TV Deal

Impact Wrestling’s New TV Deal

Impact Wrestling, in partnership with 5spike, have announced a new television deal in the United Kingdom.

5Spike has been the home of Impact Wrestling in the United Kingdom since March 2017, so this deal represents a renewal of their ongoing relationship. The show will air in it’s later time slot of 11pm on a Friday, nearly 24 hours after the airing of the episode in the United States. Impact had previously been on at 10pm, until February of this year, when the show was pushed into the later time slot.

While some may be concerned with the late time slot, and the 24 hour delay, Impact were also quick to point out that the show will be available for free on demand on the GWN app at the same time the show airs in the United States. This is great news for those of us in the United Kingdom who want to keep up to date with the action.

The renewed contract can only be a good sign for Impact, who spent much of 2017 struggling with various financial and management issues. Perhaps this is another sign that Impact are heading in the right direction?

The latest episode of Impact airs tonight in the US and on the GWN app, with their upcoming Pay-per-view Redemption, airing on Sunday on the GWN app (Subscribers only) and pay-per-view.
