Sportsnet 360, the Canadian broadcaster for WWE programming will be picking up NXT and airing a Friday night block of wrestling content.
Beginning October 4th to coincide with Friday Night SmackDown’s move, Sportsnet 360 will carry 4 ½ hours of wrestling content beginning at 6:30 pm Eastern with the Aftermath studio show.
The studio show that is hosted by Caroline Szwed with panelists Anthony Carelli, Jimmy Korderas, and Mike “Nug” Nahrgang will serve as the lead-in for the WWE block that begins with an airing of NXT at 7 pm Eastern followed by Friday Night SmackDown at 8 pm and WWE Main Event at 10 pm.
Sportsnet 360 is only listing NXT for a one-hour slot and not the full two hours that the show has expanded to.
NXT is not available in Canada on Wednesday nights but will be available on the WWE Network for Canadian and international viewers on Thursday nights on a 24-hour delay from the USA Network airing.
WWE and Rogers Sportsnet announced a ten-year programming deal in 2014 and includes the live airing of Raw on Monday nights from 8-11 pm Eastern.
