Impact Wrestling Looking To Secure New Television Deal
Impact Wrestling searching for a new TV deal in the United States this coming Fall.
Impact Wrestling officials are looking to secure a new TV deal in the United States to air their weekly flagship show this coming Fall. According to a report by PWInsider, Impact has had issues with their current network, Pursuit Channel, which has led to them wanting to make a change.
The media outlet reports that the promotion wants a better home for their TV show as it’s no secret that Pursuit is not available in as many homes as television networks such as Pop, Destination America, and SPIKE (now known as Paramount Network) that they’ve had in the past.
This is all hilarious seeing as Anthem owns Impact and the pursuit channelIncidents such as Pursuit being slow to respond to Impact’s requests, and listing the two-hour show as four separate 30-minute episodes have been part of “the latest in a long line of headaches.”
The most recent issue came last week when fans watching Rich Swann and Michael Elgin in the main event didn’t see the end of the match as the Pursuit Channel went to commercial and kept running commercials instead of returning to the broadcast.
This led to Impact having to apologize for the error and added the full show to IMPACT+ app immediately. Impact announced their TV deal with Pursuit back in January.
