New NXT episodes to have 7-day delay before hitting WWE Network in UK

 
 

All NXT on USA Network episodes will now be uploaded on the WWE Network seven days after their original air date in the UK.

Up until last week, the shows were being uploaded the next day, making it easier to skip the live broadcast and catch it on-demand the next day. But the show is now on a week delay on the Network, most likely due to TV rights issues with BT Sport. The latest NXT shows up for non-UK subscribers, meaning that WWE is using geo-targeting to limit what shows go up depending which country you are in.

The week-long delay before being available on the WWE Network was confirmed by the company’s support team on Twitter. “Please be advised that NXT will be available on WWE Network on demand 7 days after it’s original airing date,” said a tweet to a user who questioned why this week’s episode was not online yet.
