TNA has partnered with StarTimes to bring it’s weekly show, TNA IMPACT!, as well as TNA+ Specials and Pay-Per-View to an African audience.
TNA Wrestling (formerly IMPACT Wrestling) has announced a partnership with global entertainment platform StarTimes, bringing exclusive TNA content to more than 30 countries throughout Africa in January 2024.
The agreement further extends TNA’s reach, making wrestling organisation’s flagship weekly TV show TNA IMPACT! widely available to over 45 million users in locations such as Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, South Africa and the Ivory Coast, among many others. As part of the deal, StarTimes viewers will also be able to enjoy exclusive TNA+ specials and hard-hitting Pay-Per-View events, including landmark spectacles such as Bound For Glory.
The partnership comes days after the promotion rebranded back to TNA after spending the past several years known as IMPACT wrestling, as the company now sets its sights on a wider international audience.
“Africa has long-boasted a passionate wrestling audience, who have warmly embraced our programming and our athletes,” said TNA Wrestling President Scott D’Amore. “We are proud to partner with StarTimes to bring exclusive TNA content to subscribers throughout the continent, and we hope they will enjoy the exciting plans we have in store for what promises to be one of our biggest years yet!”
