Foxtel and WWE have extended their partnership for the 19th year with a new agreement to broadcast WWE programming live in Australia.
This includes flagship shows such as Raw, SmackDown and WWE’s live pay-per-views events.
Foxtel’s FOX8 will continue to air Raw live at 10am on Tuesdays and SmackDown live at 10am on Wednesdays. For the first time, FOX8 will re-air Raw on Tuesday nights in primetime and SmackDown on Wednesday nights in primetime, and Fox Sports will air one-hour versions of Raw and SmackDown in primetime each week. Both shows will be available On Demand following their broadcast.
“We are delighted to extend our long-standing partnership with one of the biggest brands in entertainment, and increase our WWE offering across both our linear channels and On Demand,” said Stephen Baldwin, Director of Foxtel Networks and On Demand. “WWE has such a passionate fan base in Australia, and Foxtel is pleased to be able to continue bringing this popular content to our customers.”
“Foxtel is a longtime, valued partner that shares our vision and passion for engaging and entertaining our fans,” said Michelle Wilson, WWE Co-President. “This agreement allows us to continue showcasing our unique blend of action-packed, family friendly entertainment across Australia.”
