The NWA has been at the center of discussions surrounding its television deal with the CW network. Last year, there were talks of NWA making its way onto the CW Television Network and now Billy Corgan has confirmed the same.
Back in November 2023, the NWA Powerrr show made its debut on the CW app, sparking conversations about the nature of the NWA’s TV deal with CW. It was then announced that the show would officially debut on the CW app on February 6th this year.
Billy Corgan previously doubled down on the NWA landing TV deal with top 20 network. This was after it was confirmed NXT would make its way to the CW.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, NWA owner Billy Corgan revealed discussions with The CW about airing NWA content on their television network, but The CW decided the streaming service was a better fit, possibly anticipating the arrival of NXT in their content portfolio from fall 2024.
Corgan emphasized that being on a streaming service is a significant move, acknowledging the fierce competition in the streaming landscape and expressing hope for a bigger future.
”When people heard that we were gonna be on the streaming side (of The CW), there were a few raised eyebrows as if this was some sort of kick in the shin and we had talked to CW at different times about being on the broadcast side versus the streaming but they just decided the streaming side was the better side for us and I think it’s because they knew what was coming. Of course, they’re more inside on the baseball than we are and of course with them signing NXT on the broadcast side but, being on a streaming service is a huge deal. The level of competition is really fierce as you see so this is a big move for us and it’s hopefully a big step into a bigger future.”
We will have to wait and see how NWA will continue to grow in the coming months, as the CW app could certainly prove to be beneficial for the company in the long run at the moment.
