The partnership also includes a commitment to the discovery and development of talent from the Indian subcontinent to join the TNA roster, following in the footsteps of Mahabali Shera - who, last year, became TNA's first-ever Indian-born Superstar.

Fans across the Indian subcontinent can watch TNA's flagship show 'Impact Wrestling', every Monday night at 9 PM on Sony Six, with 'TNA Wrestling's Greatest Matches' airing every Tuesday at 9 PM and 'TNA Xplosion' on Wednesdays at 9 PM. Sony Six also airs TNA's PPV and One Night Only events.

Prasana Krishnan, business head, Sony Six, says, "We are extremely thrilled to extend our partnership with TNA. India, historically, boasts of a rich heritage in wresting and, we believe that through this initiative we will be taking another step forward in reaching out to our audiences across India. The introduction of Shera and more Indian talents will only bolster our special televised capsule of action sports, which will feature the best of action and combat sports. We look forward to building on this fascinating sport."

Dixie Carter, president, TNA, adds, "India has an incredible cultural heritage with wrestling, and we are thrilled to continue this amazing partnership with Sony Six for years to come. As is evident through this long-term deal with Sony Six, the powerful introduction of Mahabali Shera, and our continued pledge to find and develop Indian talent, together we are committed to growing legions of TNA fans across the Indian subcontinent."
