Moving forward, WWE will be airing a one-hour version of Raw at 10 p.m. local time every Sunday and a one-hour version of SmackDown at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays.
WWE Co-President Michelle Wilson had the following to say on the partnership:
“5 shares our vision for engaging and entertaining fans in the Philippines. This partnership to televise Raw in addition to SmackDown allows us to expand our reach and deliver our unique blend of action-packed, family-friendly entertainment to WWE fans throughout the country.”
Chot Reyes, President & CEO of TV5 Network Inc. also commented on the partnership:
“WWE is an iconic brand that has become synonymous with excellence, innovation and a continuous commitment to high quality in the sports-entertainment industry. With the latest addition of Raw, we at 5 are honored to be their partner in bringing WWE programming to the Philippine free TV market.”
