TNA go Extreme
By PHIL ALLELEY

TNA have announced a new PPV deal for the UK, with their huge monthly events broadcast on the Extreme Sports Channel.

The shows will air at 10pm on the Friday following the live US transmission, starting with the company’s Destination X supercard on March 26.

Extreme Sports can be found on Sky Digital channel 419 and Virgin Media channel 527. It is free as part of Sky’s News & Events Pack or Virgin’s L offering.

The channel will also start airing TNA Xplosion, a one-hour show of highlights and new matches, on Fridays at 9pm, also from March 26.

TNA’s flagship weekly TV show Impact will stay in its current home of Bravo, where it is shown every Saturday night at 9pm.

The group — whose stars include Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle and world champion AJ Styles — also renewed their agreement with BT Vision, who will show replays of the monthly PPVs and Impact.

TNA president Dixie Carter said: "The United Kingdom has become a battleground for professional wrestling fans as TNA’s ratings have continued to climb.

"This is another important moment for TNA and is another step to become the number one professional wrestling company in the world by giving our fans what they want; more TNA programming."
