Impact Wrestling had a rough week 1 last week, but this week they have something to brag about. Viewership for the March 9. 2017 episode was 292,000. On the March 16. 2017, the viewership was up to 344,000.

Commentary: It’s good to see that last week’s episodes drew enough interest to bring a sizable viewership back to the product. I am in the middle of trying to watch it, but Alberto El Patron seems to be moving the needle a little bit. I just hope that they stop whatever they have planned for Josh Mathews/Jeremy Borash and focus on the in ring product.

Anthem Sports & Entertainment Corp. announced today a new broadcast deal for Impact Wrestling to be televised exclusively on Spike UK, making its flagship weekly show available throughout the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

From Spring 2017, Impact Wrestling, TNA pay-per-views, including One Night Only specials, will be available on Spike UK, and TNA Xplosion exclusive to My5, which is part of the Channel 5 stable available on Sky TV (160), Freeview (31), Freesat (141), Virgin Media (154), and other DTT platforms.

New episodes of Impact Wrestling will premiere on Friday nights, quenching the appetite of U.K. fans to view Impact Wrestling within hours of the U.S. premiere broadcast.

As one of the hottest wrestling scenes in the world right now, we look forward to taking an active role in the market, both on television and with live events.”

Anna-Belen Dunlop and Kris Graham, Acquisitions and Channel Managers of Spike UK, added: “We are excited that Spike will be the new exclusive home of Impact Wrestling in the UK. With Anthem’s new leadership and founder Jeff Jarrett back, this is a watershed moment for the franchise, which is a perfect fit for our Spike audience.”
