Last year November Impact Wrestling issued a press release revealing e.tv as the home for Impact within Sub-Saharan Africa.
IMPACT Wrestling premieres on e.tv on Sunday, 12 January at 4PM (Channel 194 on DStv).
This new multi-year television deal will not only include access to the weekly episodes of Impact Wrestling, but fans will also be able to watch Xplosion, the quarterly pay-per-view events, and the monthly events featured as part of the Impact Plus Presents series. Fans can expect to receive access to these shows from January 2020 onwards.
“Africa has always been a strong market for IMPACT Wrestling, where our passionate fans continue to engage with our content on multiple platforms. We are thrilled to bring professional wrestling back to e.tv, where the sport has a long history and track record of success.” – Anthem’s Chief Corporate Officer and Impact Wrestling president Ed Nordholm said.
Meanwhile, Marlon Davids, the Managing Director for echannels, said: “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.”
