Impact renews UK television deal with 5Spike
After a period of uncertainty, Impact will remain on the air in the United Kingdom.
Impact announced on their Twitter account today that they have renewed their agreement with 5Spike in the UK to continue broadcasting Impact every Friday at 11 p.m. In addition, they announced that Impact will be available on demand for free every week on their Global Wrestling Network streaming service at the same time the show is broadcast in the United States.
As for Impact’s upcoming Redemption PPV on Sunday, Impact’s Twitter account mentioned that 5Spike will not be airing the show live. However, it will be made available to subscribers of GWN next week. Impact promised a follow up to this announcement in the near future.
Impact’s future on 5Spike had been in question after the show was removed from upcoming listings while the two sides were negotiating on a new deal. They have been airing episodes of Impact on the network since last spring.
