More details on TNA’s New Home in the UK from the Sun

The Sun have posted the following article on TNA’s move to Challenge TV from February. The article contains some additional information regarding air times for PPV’s etc., thought it might be of interest to some of you.

TNA WRESTLING will be broadcast on Freeview from February, thanks to a deal the company has signed with Sky TV channel Challenge.

Challenge TV will broadcast TNA’s flagship show Impact every week, as well as round-up programme Xplosion and huge monthly PPV events such as Lockdown and Bound For Glory.

It marks the return of grappling to free television in Britain, sure to invoke memories of the glory days of British wrestling on ITV’s World of Sport.

TNA president Dixie Carter said: “So happy to announce that all TNA programming in the UK will be on Challenge TV from February on Sky, Virgin and now Freeview too!”

TNA, which used to be shown on Bravo, is the home of wrestling legends including Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle and Jeff Hardy.

A spokesman for Sky — the satellite operator 39.1 per cent owned by News Corporation, parent company of The Sun — added: “We’ll be showing all the episodes fans have missed.

“We’ll announce exact timings soon but the monthly TNA PPV show will be shown as a recorded show as it was on Bravo. We plan to show these on a Wednesday night when they happen, in addition to the weekly Impact/Xplosion shows.”

Challenge can be found on Freeview Channel 46 from February 1, Sky Channel 125 and Virgin Media Channel 139.
