Press Release from Sean Herbert (MD of TWC)

 

British TNA fans get dream Christmas gift

 

The Wrestling Channel (TWC) has brought viewers the perfect Christmas gift by signing a deal to broadcast up-to-date TNA Wrestling shows just seven days after their original US airdates.

 

The deal takes effect from Saturday 21 January 2006 with TNA Impact, while the Final Resolution pay-per-view airs the following evening, both on just a one-week delay. All Impact shows and pay-per-views from that point on will continue to air just a week after their original US broadcast.

 

Although TNA programming currently airs on a five-week delay on TWC, viewers need not worry about missing any shows because of the new deal. TWC will broadcast a double-bill of Impact on Saturday 7 January, while the usual Sunday Supercard slot on Sunday 15 January will feature four episodes to bring viewers up to date.

 

Sean Herbert, director of programming at TWC, said viewer response was the driving force behind the deal. “When we ask viewers what changes they'd like to see at the channel, the most common response is up-to-date TNA. This deal means fans will now find it far easier to avoid reading results or reports from the shows before they air on TWC, meaning they can enjoy TNA programming with an 'as live' feel.”

 

TWC broadcasts on Sky Digital channel 427 and is available without charge to all satellite viewers, regardless of their viewing package.

 

The full timetable for the changeover to the new schedule is as follows:

 

 

Saturday 17th December 2005 @ 9pm: TNA iMPACT Ep #107 (5-week delay from US).

Sunday 18th December 2005 @ 8pm: TNA Genesis Supercard (5-week delay from US).
