Last week, Impact Wrestling officially announced their new television deal with Pursuit Channel to air their flagship show in the United States starting on January 11th. Although Anthem owns the station, the show will remain at 10 p.m. ET which is the same time slot that the show has been airing at since October on Pop TV.
Don Callis, who is part of the Impact Wrestling creative team, talked about the change of networks during his Killing The Town podcast and what fans should expect. Here is what he had to say:
“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.”
