It wasn't long ago that TNA President Dixie Carter was teasing a big announcement, and she wasn't necessarily referring to the fact that Impact will move back to its regular time slot of 9 p.m. ET on Thursday nights on Spike TV. No, she was also referring to the new partnership the company has entered into with YouTube for a paid subscription channel.
Indeed, YouTube rolled out 53 new subscription based channels from various content providers and TNA is one of them.
The description for the new channel reads:
"New content will be added weekly! More 2012 PPVs coming, plus exclusive content! Watch archived events featuring your favorite Impact Wrestling Superstars, including Hulk Hogan, Sting, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, A.J. Styles, and many more!"
Essentially, you can watch any pay-per-view (PPV) event the company has put on since 2004, as well as various special releases. The cost for this is just $4.99 per month, and if you go now, you can get in on a 14-day free trial to dip your toes in the water.

This would be the very same deal WWE opted out of, instead electing to cut a deal with Yahoo in additional to its Hulu Plus content. It should be noted for all you mixed martial arts (MMA) fans out there that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is one of the anchor tenants of the new YouTube deal.
Anyone plan on getting in on any of this?
