TNA and Sony SIX in India today announced a very long-term deal which
will see Sony SIX exclusively carrying TNA programming until 2022. The
partnership also includes a commitment to the discovery and development of
talent from the Indian subcontinent to join the TNA roster, following in
the footsteps of Mahabali Shera – who last year became TNA’s first ever
Indian-born Superstar. Fans in India can watch Impact Wrestling every
Monday night at 9PM, TNA Wrestling’s Greatest Matches every Tuesday at
9PM, and TNA Xplosion every Wednesday at 9PM. Sony SIX also airs TNA’s PPV
and One Night Only events. TNA signed their first deal with Sony SIX in
the Summer of 2013 and TNA shows havs helped Sony SIX become the most
viewed sports channel across the Indian subcontinent. “We are extremely
thrilled to extend our partnership with TNA. India historically boasts of
a rich heritage in wresting and we believe, that through this initiative,
we will be taking another step forward in reaching out to our audiences
across India. The introduction of Shera and more Indian talents will only
bolster our special televised capsule of action sports, which will feature
the best of action and combat sports. We at Sony SIX look forward to
building on this fascinating sport,” said Sony SIX Business Head Prasana
Krishna. TNA President Dixie Carter added, “India has an incredible
cultural heritage with wrestling and we are thrilled to continue this
amazing partnership with Sony SIX for years to come. As is evident through
this long-term deal with Sony SIX, the powerful introduction of Mahabali
Shera, and our continued pledge to find and develop Indian talent,
together we are committed to growing legions of TNA fans across the Indian
subcontinent.”
