More Details On TNA Airing Free In The United Kingdom

Matt Boone

The following is an article from The Sun:

BRITISH wrestling fans are celebrating after TNA confirmed their flagship programme will be shown on free TV.

The company will debut Impact on Freeview channel Virgin 1 on Fridays at 9pm from October 30.

A repeat of the show will air the following night, as usual, on Bravo — which subscribers to Sky and Virgin Media can get as part of their package.

Sadly, it is currently only a temporary measure to boost interest in the product, rather than a permanent move to screen wrestling free in the UK.

A Virgin spokesman told SunSport: "As the TNA Wrestling brand continues to grow in the UK, we wanted to give the Freeview audience a chance to catch all the action.

"So, for a limited time, we will be giving wrestling fans the opportunity to see TNA’s weekly flagship show TNA Impact a day earlier on Virgin 1.

"It will be premiering on Friday nights at 9pm from Friday 30 October to Friday 4 December."

He added: "This is a scheduling and programming decision to widen the brand to a Freeview audience on Virgin1 for a limited time. TNA’s official home will still be Bravo.

"Once new fans get a taste of it they can tune into Bravo for all the action as usual. It’s even more of an incentive to subscribe to Virgin Media or Sky."
