With the new television deal being done, Don Callis revealed that the product will become sexier and edgier as we ring into 2019.
It was revealed that they made a deal with Pursuit Channel to air their show in the United States starting on January 11th. It also means a new night for the show as it’s moving from Thursday’s to Friday’s.
“This week we announced our move from Pop TV which was a great partner for us. A lot of fans thought, ‘Wow, you guys should be on a different network with a different demographic’ so we announced this week we’re moving to Pursuit which is an exciting thing for me. When you talk about how you deal with your content as a company because our parent company Anthem owns not only the Fight Network and Game TV, they also own a significant stake in Pursuit. It’s a great strategic move for us, and I think people are going to love to see a sexier, edgier, maybe even a little more hardcore Impact Wrestling. I’m really, really pumped about that.”
