Since the announcement of the brand back in June, many members of the WWE Universe have been patiently (and in a lot of cases impatiently) waiting for the announcement of when they will be able to watch NXT UK.
The new brand formerly known as the United Kingdom Division has already had two sets of television tapings (one in Cambridge, England and one in Birmingham, England) with another set for Plymouth this Saturday. Additionally, while the previously announced NXT UK Tag Team Titles have yet to be introduced, the inaugural NXT UK Women’s Champion has already been crowned. Yet, there had been no updates on when fans may be able to tune into the product.
There had been speculation that an announcement regarding that could be coming today and sure enough, this morning WWE has revealed that the new NXT UK show will premiere Wednesday, October 17th at 8PM UK time (3PM EST) and will air weekly:

NXT UK will join 205 Live, NXT and this year’s Mae Young Classic as a part of the WWE Network’s Wednesday lineup. Also, at this time it’s believed 205 Live will remain in their Wednesday time slot and will not be moving back to Tuesday’s after SmackDown Live when the Mixed Match Challenge comes to a close.
