      How is SkyTV NZ a terrible network?
      Compared to what other NZ network?? TVNZ? The shopping channel? Maori tv?

      The only non Sky channels I could imagine it on here would be TVNZ's channel 2 which used to have WCW, or possibly TVNZ U which is a channel aimed at young teens and already "features" Hogans MCW

    So? What the f)(k else is new? How many times are you nitwits going to report the same sh!t as news? Are you idiots ever going to figure out how to operate a website? For God's sakes you've had the same site announcement posted for over a year. Pull your heads out of your asses and do something that's worth reading.

    @ RealCreative — I can't find anything on the Australian ratings for Impact specifically so far but it seems worth noting that Fuel isn't exactly setting the world afire with their ratings either. Both the ratings info & the network landscape "down under" are different than what we're accustomed to here but looking at the latest numbers it's pretty clear that Fuel is — at best — roughly equivalent to Spike.
