WWE and Rogers Sportsnet in Canada has announced an expanded agreement that will see NXT air live on Wednesday nights.
Beginning this week, NXT will air live from 8-10 pm ET on Sportsnet 360, the same network that carries WWE Raw, Friday Night SmackDown, and WWE Main Event.
Prior to this news, NXT aired in a one-hour timeslot on Friday nights on Sportsnet 360 as a lead-in for Friday Night SmackDown.
WWE and Rogers Sportsnet entered into a ten-year agreement in 2014 that saw Sportsnet become the exclusive distributor of WWE programming in Canada, including the WWE Network, which airs as its own linear channel in the country.
NXT will go head-to-head with AEW Dynamite in Canada, which airs at the same time on TSN 2 each Wednesday night.
