WWE’s Smackdown Live is moving to FOX!

WWE’s Smackdown Live is on the move!

Per Deadspin:

Multiple reports say WWE has agreed in principle to an agreement that will bring WWE SmackDown Live to Fox starting in October 2019. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox will pay $1 billion for five years.

As David Bixenspan wrote last week, WWE is cashing in on TV channels’ thirst for live sports TV. While WWE isn’t exactly sports—in case you weren’t aware, wrestling is scripted—its fans enjoy watching programs live. That means it’s relatively DVR-proof.

NBCU is expected to keep Raw—which airs Monday nights on USA—which The Hollywood Reporter’s Lesley Goldberg reported may cost the company three times the $80 million a year it currently pays.
