I have always found it strange that a lot of countries have more WWE programming than USA and Mexico (their biggest markets). For example the UK have 8 WWE programs as seen below.

WWE Raw
WWE NXT
WWE SmackDown
WWE Bottom Line
WWE After Burn
WWE Vintage Collection
WWE Superstars
The WWE Experience


Whereas the united states only airs Smackdown and Raw. Also Smackdown and Raw are continualy re-aired throughout the week unlike the states where just RAW AM is shown.

Thoughts?

I never knew that! I'm a fan in the UK too, and I also dont think a lot of American fans know that NXT and Superstars is still shown on our televisions. Doesnt bother me, I like them :)

Well in the middle east we can watch Smackdown and WWE Experience new episodes that is ofcaurse on paid satelite while the people who has free Satelite can Watch WWE RAW and WWE afterburn but it would be 2 weeks late from the latest episode and most of us certainly dont pay for satelite therefor most of us eather watch WWE RAW on 2 weeks late or we watch the latest one on the internet

You see, that's why TNA get's higher ratings that WWE in the UK. TNA is on free television, whereas Raw and Smackdown are on paid-for TV packages.

Yep. I got sky sports in the uk so i got the full list of wwe programming in the uk. I watch nearly every showing barring most of the re-runs although i sometimes put them on just cause i like having them on whilst i go about my daily stuff. My lady and my kids are probably gettin sick of how much i watch but they seem to all have their fav wrestlers.

I catch TNA too but the time its on actually makes me miss its original broadcast slot most times so i tivo it. I dont know if thatd change if i suddenly had to get rid of my cable.

Having said all of that, i do really miss Sunday Night Heat. I would swap the experience/afterburn/bottom line to have Heat back on. Ah the memories of my pre-cable days back at my parents, surviving solely on WCW/Heat (Jeff hardy nearly every week back then) and the odd free-to-air WWF PPV.

WWE really should provide at least one free hour long prog to all countries, it would give them so much more exposure and cost hardly anything if it was like superstars. Afterall if it wasnt for the freebies back in the day, i would have probably lost my connection and interest seeing as i had no internet, and im sure there were millions and millions more like me back then, and the same goes for now. I really hope they do this and get those extra kids interested, cuz i like many other would be lost without wrestling and specifically WWE. Its my only escape from reality.

That might be the reason on why so many people from the United Kingdom are WWE fans. I know another forum that is nearly 60% users from the UK, pretty interesting that WWE has grown that far.

WWE After burn is highlights what has happened this week in Smackdown and Bottom line for Raw. WWE Experience highlights matches from both and they are all an hour long each.

We get Raw again on Sunday in Spanish.

I wonder if the reason they play those other shows across the pond is because you guys get Raw/SD in the early morning hours.

In the Netherlands we only have class time, which involves half an hour highlights from raw, sd, enz (from 2 weeks ago). And vintage, an hour of vintage stuff...:(

Me want WWE on tv.
Too bad for them I now have to which it by internet...

In New Jersey with my Comcast we have a channel called UHD (Universal High Definition) which replays Raw and Smackdown! every Saturday night. 8pm Raw, 10pm SD!, 12am Raw, 2am SD!... it's really weird but, I like it!

Oh wow. WWE Afterburn is still around? We used to get that years ago in the states, but i figured it was just canceled.

As far as i know all we get in the states is raw and smackdown :(

and all i get in my area is the one viewing for each. Raw @ 9pm monday and smackdown @ 8pm friday.

I remember when we also got Velocity, SN Heat and the first seasons of Tough Enough as well. :)
Good times indeed.

UK also get Xplosion and free TNA PPVs. We also get the WWE Vault during commercials, but I think USA get that too

Unfortunately we don't get RAW until 2 am and the same w/ PPVs. We also didnt get TE this year but we used to get it back in 2000 - 2005.

NXT doesn't air on Tuesdays here either.

No VAULT for us. I usually only see "From The Vault" when watching my "International SmackDown!" on Friday mornings here.

We also would get a show just before a PPV, where they outline the matches and air a feud promo
