Impact Wrestling made a big announcement during tonight’s Homecoming PPV event from Nashville pertaining to the weekly Impact television series.
The company announced starting this Friday (January 11) when Impact premieres on the Pursuit channel, the show will also simulcast live on Twitch at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.
It was made clear by Impact Wrestling on Twitter that this will be a weekly occurrence going forward and not a one-time only deal for the new Friday night time slot.
As reported earlier, Impact and Anthem announced a new television deal with Pursuit back in December. It was later revealed the deal was not exclusive and that Anthem (the owners of Impact Wrestling) have “significant minority ownership” in the channel.
Impact officials reportedly remain determined to find a more high profile television outlet for the Impact series going forward. However, they have opted to simulcast the show on Twitch as a way to make up for many people not getting the channel.
