Channel will debut AEW Dynamite, the weekly flagship show from All Elite Wrestling.
TNT Africa will reveal its 2021 channel refresh, packed with a slate of tailor-made shows and content from February 1. With this move, the channel aims to emphasise its commitment to deliver relevant programmes to African fans.
It will debut AEW Dynamite, the weekly flagship show from All Elite Wrestling, the new professional wrestling league. The launch kicks off on February 5 at 13h20 (CAT) with the first five episodes of the new season. Then, every Friday night, during prime time at 20h00 (CAT), the channel will premiere the recent high-octane matches, two days after the US premiere, and after that repeated twice throughout the week. AEW offers an alternative to mainstream wrestling with a list of world-class talent, offering TNT Africa viewers a weekly wrestling programme.
TNT Africa will continue to show its exclusive and original movies on the first Thursday of every month.
Speaking about the new strategy, Guillermo Farré, Head of the WarnerMedia General Entertainment channels across France, Iberia and Africa said: “TNT is excited to usher in a new era in entertainment that is attuned to our audience needs and appetite. Despite how far we’ve come, we remain steadfastly dedicated to giving our African audience premium content, and the launch of AEW DYNAMITE and the channel refresh bear testament of this.”
