Impact Wrestling today announced a new multi-year television deal with e.tv to broadcast the weekly television show Impact Wrestling across more than 50 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The exclusive broadcast deal will also include Xplosion plus four annual pay-per-view shows, its new Impact Plus Presents monthly event series and library content.
Beginning in January 2020, IMPACT! will air weekly on e.tv and rebroadcast specific program content on e.tv’s free-to-air satellite platform Openview.
“Africa has always been a strong market for IMPACT Wrestling, where our passionate fans continue to engage with our content on multiple platforms,” said Ed Nordholm, Chief Corporate Officer of Anthem Sports & Entertainment and president of IMPACT Wrestling. “We are thrilled to bring professional wrestling back to e.tv, where the sport has a long history and track record of success.”
“e.tv is proud to be the home of Impact Wrestling across Sub-Saharan Africa. We received enormous traction from having aired wrestling on our channels a few years ago, and it is only befitting that we bring back content that highly resonates with our audience. We hope to build the IMPACT Wrestling brand on our multi-channel platforms for many years to come,” said Marlon Davids, MD, echannels.
