IMPACT Wrestling, a property of Anthem Sports Group, and DAZN, the sports entertainment platform, have announced that the wrestling company’s weekly flagship weekly show, IMPACT!, will air on Sky in the UK via DAZN’s linear TV channel, DAZN 1 HD.

The show will air on Friday nights at 11pm on DAZN 1 HD, channel 429.

IMPACT Wrestling ’s current roster is led by IMPACT World Champion Alex Shelley (pictured) and Knockouts World Champion Deonna Purrazzo, World Tag Team Champions The Bullet Club’s Ace Austin & Chris Bey, Knockouts World Tag Team Champions The Coven, X Division Champion Chris Sabin, and Digital Media Champion Joe Hendry. Other notable stars include Josh Alexander, Bully Ray, Moose, Rhyno, Heath, Brian Myers, Mickie James, Gisele Shaw and Masha Slamovich.

DAZN HD 1 was launched on Sky in March and features premier boxing and combat sports, women’s football, eSports, extreme sports and sports documentaries. The televising of IMPACT! on DAZN 1 HD is part of a broader agreement between Anthem Sports Group and DAZN announced in November 2022.

“The UK fans have been among the most dedicated and passionate IMPACT Wrestling fans throughout our history. They have been clamoring for a return of Impact programming to TV, so we are very pleased to be on such an outstanding TV outlet as Sky UK via DAZN 1 HD,” said Scott D’Amore, President of IMPACT Wrestling. “We thank our partner, DAZN, and look forward bringing IMPACT Wrestling live to the UK very soon.”

DAZN 1 HD will also televise other IMPACT Wrestling programming across the UK and Ireland, including monthly specials, original shows and series, and additional content from IMPACT’s 5,000+ hour library. Since its inception in 2002, IMPACT Wrestling has established itself as one of the largest professional wrestling organisations in the world.
