World Wrestling Entertainment is an American publicly traded company that deals primarily in professional wrestling.
WWE is shown on Sky Sports in the UK with pay-per-view events airing on Sky’s PPV channel, Sky Sports Box Office.
In 1989, Sky acquired the rights to WWE, from America. Sky Sports Arena is considered the home of WWE programming on Sky, as the majority of the programmes are shown on it.
Part of the current deal with Sky states that major PPV’s such as WrestleMania, Survivor Series, the Royal Rumble and SummerSlam are part of the Sky Sports Box Office pay-per-view service, and that SmackDown’s first broadcast moved from Sky 1 to Sky Sports. As part of the deal, Raw is now shown live on Sky Sports Arena early Tuesday morning because of the time difference. As of 19 July 2016, SmackDown! is broadcast live early Wednesday morning for the same reason.
On 30 January 2014, Sky Sports announced they had signed another five-year deal with WWE. Sky will now continue to exclusively broadcast WWE’s flagship shows in the UK and Ireland through to 2019.
