NWA ‘makes bold changes’ to TV programming in 2023

The NWA is making bold changes to its show model for 2023.

NWA debuted new episodes of NWA Powerrr And the NWA USA through special Paid membership package on FitTV. Those same episodes will be released on NWA YouTube channel Later in the week for free consumption. This form no longer exists.

NWA has finished its All Access package on Fite TV, and it’s uploading now NWA Powerrr And the NWA USA in their original time slots for YouTube. NWA Powerrr It will air on Tuesdays at 6:05 p.m. ET, and NWA USA It will air Saturdays at 12 PM ET. This means that NWA television programs are available without cost barriers for all to see as first-run programmes.

This new plan kicked off with Tuesday’s episode of NWA Powerrrwhich featured the Champions Series semi-finals.

This show is gearing up for its first ever live special NWA Powerrr On January 31st.

The NWA will still rely on Fite TV as its PPV platform. the Naf said The February 11th event will be headlined by Tyrus vs. Matt Cardona for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship.

The term “bold” is what the NWA said from the press release. I suppose the inclusion are betting themselves on increasing the audience in a bid to entice a potential TV contract. This announcement releases them from any programmatic obligations to Fite TV should the right deal emerge in 2023.

Do you think this bold strategy will pay off for the NWA?
