WWE announces new television deal in Germany

WWE and 7Sports, the parent company of ProSiebenSat1, today announced a new multi-year agreement to televise Raw and SmackDown in German on ProSieben MAXX, beginning in April 2017. This marks the first time both shows have aired on the same free-to-air channel in Germany.

“We are proud that we were able to secure this deal for ProSieben MAXX,” said Zeljko Karajica, CEO, 7Sports. “This gives us the opportunity to extend our WWE coverage and make sports entertainment even more popular in Germany.”

Ed Wells, WWE Executive Vice President, International, said that ProSieben MAXX shares their same vision and passion for engaging and entertaining WWE fans. “This partnership creates one primary destination in ProSieben MAXX for fans to enjoy our unique blend of action-packed, family entertainment.”

ProSieben MAXX has aired SmackDown since April 2014. The station will also serve as a marketing partner for the upcoming WWE Live tour in Germany in November.
