Extreme-ly Frustrating?

Extreme Sports Channel

Extreme Sports Channel

Well we all know Extreme Sports Channels initial offering of TNA Destination X for UK viewers was a complete disaster when a scheduling issue meant the end of the show was cut off. Well it seems the second offering is due to make many TNA fans just as irate.

Many of you contacted me via email to ask if TNA Sacrifice is to be broadcast on Extreme Sports as initially stated – 10 days following the live us broadcast, that would mean this Friday the 21st of May……however as many of you have noticed it dosen’t appear to be listed. I’ve checked the listings on my V+ box and i don’t see it either.

However a quick check on UK TV Guide will show that its set to broadcast the FOLLOWING week after Xplosion at 10pm on the 28th may. Thats a 10 -day tape delay! And furthermore since Bravo shows impact on a 2-day tape delay that will put it all out of sync my friends. More to the point, the episode of Xplosion set to broadcast on the very same Extreme Sports channel as lead in to Sacrifice will actually be talking and showing highlights of Sacrifice and the post-Sacrifice Impact!! Ludicrous if you ask me.

This is simply unacceptable. I’ve sent correspondence on the matter to both TNA and Extreme Sports Channel and hope to have some feedback on the matter soon. Will keep you updated, stay tuned.

*UPDATE* Have since had correspondence with reps at Extreme Sports Channel who have confirmed that this was simply a mistake on their part iwth regards the EPG, which is currently (if not already) rectified. Can confirm TNA Sacrifice WILL air at the alloted time of 22:00pm on Extreme Sports this Friday 21st May – Good news all round!!
