The WWE and USA Network made the official announcement on 3/30 of NXT moving to Tuesdays at 8 p.m.

As already reported weeks ago, the move will be made on 4/13, the Tuesday after WrestleMania and five days after a Takeover show as a way to likely shoot angles and give the move the most boost it can coming during the period of the year when interest in WWE is at its high point.

With the announcement came a second announcement of a multi-year deal signed to keep the show on USA. The original two-year deal was to expire at the end of September.

As was expected, Sportsnet in Canada and BT in the U.K. are also moving NXT up a day to air live. NXT had just started in Canada live on 2/24 and had never even cracked the ratings chart, doing lower numbers then it had done on Friday night at 7 p.m.
