    For fans of good wrestling, there is hope! Here's some details about the upcoming Wrestling Channel on Sky. (taken from 1wrestling.com)

    The channel, which is going to be available on satellite in the UK, will feature (as of right now) NWA:TNA, Ring Of Honor, Major League Wrestling, Combat Zone Wrestling, UPW and XWF (the old shows they taped two years ago) from the United States, Pro Wrestling Noah and New Japan Pro Wrestling from Japan, CMLL from Mexico, and Frontier Wrestling Alliance and Irish Whip Wrestling from the UK. Needless to say, it is going to be a great channel for wrestling junkies in the UK.

    My TiVo will definitely be getting a workout when this station launches, which should be sometime this month. I don't know which package it'll be on, and I just hope I don't have to resubscribe to Sky Sports to get it. Here's the official website, but it's just a holding page at the moment:

    Aw, crud.

    Did some more digging, and the launch looks to have been delayed. Right now, it's set for March 1, 2004, but that hasn't been confirmed.

    So far, the tests have been very impressive. Of course, FriendlyTV regularly loses the sound and shows the programmes out of order, but that's par for the course for the team at Friendly.

    Yes, the TWC team are stressing that the service being provided on FriendlyTV is certainly not what it will be like on the real channel.
