Atresmedia renews WWE deal in Spain

Spanish commercial broadcaster Atresmedia has agreed a further rights renewal with wrestling organisation WWE.

The duration of the new deal is unknown. Atresmedia first acquired WWE rights in 2014 and has since renewed its deal twice: first in 2015 and again in 2017. The new deal will begin on April 6.

It will broadcast flagship shows Raw and Smackdown in a delayed two-hour programme with Spanish commentary on its Mega channel.

The Mediapro agency acquired rights last March to WWE highlights shows Bottom Line, Afterburn and Experience for its Gol TV channel in Spain.
