TNA IMPACT WRESTLING AND NUVOLARI SIGN NEW DEAL AFTER ITALIAN SUCCESS
ROME (June 1, 2015): TNA IMPACT WRESTLING and popular Italian sports broadcaster Nuvolari TV have signed a new deal to extend their successful partnership.
After a year of high ratings and a first ever live event in Italy featuring TNA Superstars, IMPACT WRESTLING will continue to be broadcast in Italy and surrounding territories including Vatican City, Republic of San Marino, Malta, Capodistria, Principality of Monaco and Italian speaking Switzerland.
IMPACT WRESTLING will premiere on Nuvolari each Thursday night at 9pm, with repeats on Sundays at 11pm. Nuvolari will also broadcast re-runs of 2014 TNA programming every weekday at 6pm, as well as the 2015 Slammiversary and Bound For Glory special events.
Fans can watch Nuvolari via digital terrestrial TV, satellite and live web streaming.
Corrado Azzolini, LT Multimedia Vice President, said: “We are really happy about renewing TNA IMPACT WRESTLING, which allows us to broadcast many more amazing matches.
“Our viewers are so excited about this great news and are looking forward to watching new TNA programming every Thursday, as well as some of the best action from last year. Nuvolari is the television channel for TNA IMPACT WRESTLING lovers in Italy.”
TNA’s Italian announce team of Alessio Di Nicolantonio and Daniele De Micco added: “We are happy and honoured to continue as the Italian IMPACT WRESTLING commentators. TNA’s popularity in Italy keeps growing day by day and the Rome event in February, hosted by local independent group EPW, was a landmark event for wrestling in Italy.”
TNA President Dixie Carter said: “Our growth in Italy has been fantastic and we are delighted that fans will be able to continue to watch IMPACT WRESTLING on Nuvolari.
“This is a partnership that extends beyond the TV screen to media and live charity events, one in Rome this past February alongside Italian sporting legends Giancarlo Fisichella and Francesco Totti.
“I cannot wait to see what the next year brings for our company, our Superstars and, above all, our fans in Italy.”
TNA IMPACT WRESTLING is the world’s most innovative experience in professional wrestling and is currently broadcast in more than 120 countries around the world. The company recently signed multi-year deals to broadcast across Africa on SuperSport, the Indian subcontinent on Sony SIX and Europe with various prestigious partners.
