WWE Raw to air live in the UK from 2005

Sky has recently signed a new five year agreement with World Wrestling Entertainment and from the beginning of 2005 will carry all nine first run hours of WWE’s seven weekly programmes including, for the first time, a weekly live showing of WWE RAW® on Monday nights.

  • WWE RAW® – Live on Sky Sports on Mondays nights at 2.00am, repeated Wednesday evenings at 9.00pm

  • WWE SmackDown! – Sky Sports Fridays at 9.30pm

  • WWE Heat – Sky Sports Sundays

  • WWE Velocity – Sky Sports Sundays

  • WWE Bottom Line – Sky Sports Fridays

  • WWE After Burn – Sky Sports Sundays

  • WWE Experience – Sky One Sundays

In addition, during negotiations Sky accepted a request from WWE to include more live events on Pay-Per-View and therefore Sky Box Office will now show eight events annually, including the favourites WrestleMania®, Royal Rumble®, Summerslam® and Survivor Series®.

Furthermore, there will be six monthly Specials also shown LIVE on Sunday evenings on Sky Sports.

All programming is subject to change and where appropriate will be shown completely uncut when scheduled for late evening viewing. Repeats suitable for daytime will be edited.
