Currently, in the UK, NXT was available on-demand by the Friday after it aired on WWE Network, they will now have to wait seven days after the original airing date. No announcement was made via e-mail or social media, so numerous UK fans contacted the @AskWWENetwork Twitter account to find out why NXT isn’t available yet.

No official reason was given, but it’s speculated this is due to BT Sport having the exclusive rights to live airings of the show. BT Sport took over airing WWE live in the UK and Ireland back in January after WWE’s 30-year partnership with Sky Sports ended. The new deal included airings of RAW, SmackDown, NXT, NXT UK, and WWE PPVs.
