WWE issued the following press release to announce their first Mongolian television deal.
WWE (NYSE: WWE) and SPS HD, Mongolia’s premier sports broadcaster, today announced an agreement to broadcast WWE’s flagship programs Raw® and SmackDown® on SPS Sports for the first time in Mongolia.
Beginning this week, SPS Sports will air a two-hour version of Raw on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and SmackDown at 11 a.m. on Sundays, both available in English with Mongolian subtitles.
“We are proud to bring WWE programming to Mongolia for the first time,” said Naranbat Nasanbat, CEO of SPS HD. “Our fans across the country will enjoy WWE’s highly entertaining storytelling.”
“We are thrilled to complete our first-ever broadcast deal in Mongolia,” said Michelle Wilson, WWE Chief Revenue & Marketing Officer. “This partnership to televise WWE programming allows us to expand our reach and deliver our unique blend of action-packed, family friendly entertainment to WWE fans throughout the country.”
Raw and SmackDown will also be available on SPS HD’s TV Everywhere platform for authenticated subscribers, and on its 14-day VOD catchup window.
Powell’s POV: The population of Mongolia is just north of three million. In other words, don’t look for a character named Mongolian Stomper Jr. to defeat AJ Styles for the WWE Championship.
