TNA Resolves UK TV Situation, Programming To Air On Freeview



TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter announced Tuesday that all TNA programming in the U.K. will air on Sky TV channel Challenge beginning next month.

Challenge TV will broadcast iMPACT! each week, as well as Xplosion and monthly pay-per-view events.

TNA’s television situation in the U.K. had been limbo since January 1 when its former home, Bravo, was shut down.

Challenge TV generally airs game show programs, but is available to Sky, Virgin, and Freeview systems. By getting on Freeview, TNA programming will eventually be available to every television in the United Kingdom (once the UK Digital Switchover is completed in 2012).

At yesterday’s live event in Dublin, Ireland, Carter informed the live audience that TNA signed a new television distribution agreement in the U.K.
