TNA and Sony SIX in India today announced a very long-term deal which will see Sony SIX exclusively carrying TNA programming until 2022.
The partnership also includes a commitment to the discovery and development of talent from the Indian subcontinent to join the TNA roster, following in the footsteps of Mahabali Shera – who last year became TNA’s first ever Indian-born Superstar.
Fans in India can watch Impact Wrestling every Monday night at 9PM, TNA Wrestling’s Greatest Matches every Tuesday at 9PM, and TNA Xplosion every Wednesday at 9PM. Sony SIX also airs TNA’s PPV and One Night Only events.
TNA signed their first deal with Sony SIX in the Summer of 2013 and TNA shows havs helped Sony SIX become the most viewed sports channel across the Indian subcontinent.
“We are extremely thrilled to extend our partnership with TNA. India historically boasts of a rich heritage in wresting and we believe, that through this initiative, we will be taking another step forward in reaching out to our audiences across India. The introduction of Shera and more Indian talents will only bolster our special televised capsule of action sports, which will feature the best of action and combat sports. We at Sony SIX look forward to building on this fascinating sport,” said Sony SIX Business Head Prasana Krishna.
TNA President Dixie Carter added, “India has an incredible cultural heritage with wrestling and we are thrilled to continue this amazing partnership with Sony SIX for years to come. As is evident through this long-term deal with Sony SIX, the powerful introduction of Mahabali Shera, and our continued pledge to find and develop Indian talent, together we are committed to growing legions of TNA fans across the Indian subcontinent.”
