WWE NXT airing live on Canada's Sportsnet 360 starting Wednesday

WWE and Canada's Sportsnet announced Monday that NXT will begin airing live on both Sportsnet 360 and SN NOW beginning this Wednesday at 8 PM Eastern.

The deal expands a relationship that already includes Raw, SmackDown, Main Event and This Week in WWE airing on Sportsnet 360. The company is also the exclusive distributor of the WWE Network throughout Canada, offering the Network as a premium linear channel.

Like in the U.S., NXT will go head-to-head with AEW Dynamite which has aired live on TSN since their launch.

Of note, the ten year exclusive deal the two sides signed is up in 2024, setting WWE up for another impressive rights deal in a few years.

Sportsnet is a Canadian sports broadcast network owned by Rogers that also holds the rights to the NHL, Major League Baseball, regional rights to five Canadian NHL franchises and regional rights to the Toronto Blue Jays in MLB.
