As noted over the weekend, TNA is under the impression that Spike TV will not be renewing them past 2014, however they feel they have another television deal lined up.
According to recent reports, the network that has expressed interest in TNA is The Discovery Network’s VELOCITY channel, which is only available in 48 million homes and only in HD.
The key issue with the VELOCITY deal is that it is reportedly only worth under a quarter of what they earn in rights fees from Spike TV.
While TNA officials are reportedly relieved that they have at least another television option if Spike TV doesn’t work out, they are also reportedly disappointed in the financial offer that has been made. They also hope that this deal will lead to other potential partners contacting them in the near future, possibly with a better deal.
