NEW DELHI: MSM's Sony Six is certainly turning up the heat among other leading sports broadcasters and now, further expanding its bouquet of international sporting events, it has acquired the exclusive broadcasting rights to Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling across the Indian sub-continent.

Sony Six will now air all of the best TNA Wrestling programming every week including Impact Wrestling, Xplosion, Greatest Matches and Unfinished Business, along with four episodic Pay per view programs and eight One Night Only specials throughout the year.

TNA Wrestling is one of the leading brands in the world of sports and entertainment, providing high excitement action across the globe.

MSM CEO Man Jit Singh said, “Wrestling is considered one of the ancient sports in the world and India with kushti has a storied tradition in wrestling. India’s recent success in international wrestling has attracted the youth in India and also captured the imagination and interest of audiences across the country. Given this national interest in the sport, we are proud to have acquired TNA Wrestling as one of our premium international sporting events. TNA Wrestling has garnered immense viewership internationally and we believe this association further reiterates Sony Six’s commitment to airing high impact alternative sports in India.”

Commenting on this new initiative MSM COO N P Singh added, “Sony Six will now offer fans more than 500 hours of exciting original wrestling content every year. TNA Wrestling is a global phenomenon, producing exclusive entertainment for more than five million viewers in 14 languages each week and seen in more than 120 countries across the world. We at Sony Six look forward to building on this fascinating sport in the years to come.”

Speaking about the partnership with Sony Six, TNA Wrestling president Dixie Carter said, "Everyone at TNA is thrilled at this exciting venture with Sony Six that will open up new horizons across all of India. The Indian sub-continent is home to some of the most passionate and dedicated wrestling fans on the planet - and they now have more than 500 hours of the very best in professional wrestling to enjoy. Sony Six is the perfect partner for us, thanks to their impressive and diverse range of sporting events, and we can't wait to debut."

With Mixed Martial Arts and now wrestling introduced into the bouquet of international sports content, Sony Six will truly broadcast the best of both worlds by providing the finest action packed holistic entertainment programs for the audiences.
