New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) continues its international expansion. After its arrival to the televisions of countries like the United States or India, now the company will begin with its retransmissions in France. This has been confirmed by the official Twitter account of the French private television network, J-One.
J-One has confirmed that starting on May 5 will begin with the broadcasts, retransmitándose every Saturday at 20:30 PM (CEST). Regarding the format of the program and the content that is relayed, J-One has confirmed that they will be revealed during the next few days through new announcements.
J-One is a chain belonging to the Viacom International Media group, mainly focused on broadcasting Asian culture content. The chain is retransmitted in cable, satellite and has content broadcast over the Internet. Among other shows, anime, movies, series, reality shows and Japanese and Korean talk shows are broadcast, increasing their coverage with new programs.
With this step, NJPW approaches some of the countries that consume the most Japanese content. NJPW continues to increase its international coverage, not only with its official platform, New Japan World but also with contracts in several countries. In the United States, a condensed version of his AXS TV shows is broadcast on Fridays with commentary by Jim Ross and Josh Barnett. They also broadcast in Canada on The Fight Network, rebroadcasting the AXS version. They recently reached an agreement in India, issuing the summary version of the World of Pro-Wrestling show and reaching a maximum coverage of 70 million homes in the country.
