Comcast, the largest cable provider in the United States, has moved Pop TV to a higher cable package. Now, fans who want to watch TNA on Pop TV will have to upgrade their cable package. This could lead to TNA drawing fewer viewers for Impact Wrestling on the network.
Here is the official statement from Comcast:
“In December 2015 and January 2016 we will be making changes to our channel lineup in select areas. CMT, Spike TV and POP will be moving to different tiers of service and in some areas, RLTV will no longer be carried. We are making these changes to manage overall programming costs and better align our more popular packages with the most viewed programs. These changes do not affect all areas, so please refer to the grid below to see if your area will have a tier change for one of these networks.”
Last week’s debut episode on Pop drew just 255,000 viewers.
