Details Revealed For the New WWE TV Deal in the UK
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.08.2014



As previously reported, WWE signed a new TV deal with Sky Sports to air their programming on UK television. Here are the details on that deal. The new contract is for five years, lasting into 2019. With the new deal, the TV rights fees jumped to three times the previous amount. Sky Sports will air Raw, Smackdown, NXT, Superstars and Main Event each week, with recap shows and replays.

In previous years, Sky showed select PPVs for free, with others being shown as a traditional PPV for an extra fee as special events. This time around, the new deal does not include any free PPV events. All 12 WWE PPV events will buy-only PPV shows, costing approximately $25 US per show.

WWE had hoped for big TV rights fees increases this year, and the UK deal gets them off to a good start.
