WWE pay-per-view events and television shows will no longer be offered on Sky Deutschland after March. Wrestling will remain on the network as AEW programming will now be offered on Sky Deutschland.
According to Sky, WWE decided not to include the broadcasting rights for pay-per-view events in the German market. WWE and Sky Deutschland signed a multi-year agreement in November 2016.
Here is the official announcement from Sky Wrestling's Facebook page:
For months there have been speculation and rumors about the future of WWE at Sky Deutschland. Here's our official statement on the topic:
"The transfer rights to WWE pay-per-view events were no longer part of the tender and therefore no longer available for Sky Deutschland. As a result, the WWE will no longer be part of Sky Deutschland's program offer from the end of March..
Sky customers can still look forward to the best wrestling entertainment. All Elite Wrestling (AEW) pay-per view events will be available shortly on Sky Select.
