The Sky television network today published a press release revealing that as of March they will not broadcast WWE PPV events, with whom they signed a multi-year contract in November 2016. However, they have also announced that, instead, soon will begin broadcasting AEW events. The statement is as follows:
“For months there have been speculation and rumors about the future of WWE at Sky Deutschland. Here’s our official statement on the topic:
“The transfer rights to WWE pay-per-view events were no longer part of the tender and therefore no longer available for Sky Deutschland. As a result, WWE will no longer be part of Sky Deutschland’s program offer from the end of March.
Sky customers can still look forward to the best wrestling entertainment. All Elite Wrestling (AEW) pay-per-view events will be available shortly on Sky.
The weekly flagship show ‘AEW Dynamite’ of the series, founded in 2019 has been broadcasting Sky Partner Network TNT series since October (Fridays, 21.50 pm). The station can be found linear and via Sky Go as part of the Sky Entertainment package. Also, it is included in the entertainment ticket of the monthly cancellable streaming service Sky ticket.”
