At one point I remember when this was a "major" news story every other day when the company was leaving Spike TV a few years ago. Luckily this time around it is not as much of a questionable situation and if anything it is total opposite situation. Following the companies stay on Destination America which is where they headed after Spike TV they moved to another channel and that was POP TV aka the former TV guide network. Prior to POP picking up Impact Wrestling they had given television time to Vegas Independent wrestling company Paragon Pro-Wrestling. Now in reality during there time on POP we saw Impact almost hit it's end when Dixie Carter finally sold the promotion.
The last two years have been full of ups and downs for the company with the promotion having seemingly found stability and a foundation to rebuild the promotion. At this point it has been an extremely long amount of time since we last saw a negative story about the promotion which was common place at one point. As far as where they stand with POP television at the point and though the relationship seems in a good place it doesn't seem like the company will resign.
Overall Impact Wrestling still has television in both the UK and Canada, but as of early 2019 they will loose television in the United States. The latest news points to Impact & POP coming to a short term extension to keep the promotion on the channel until late winter or early spring, but after that is uncertain. For those who may not follow Impact the company recently was moved to a different time slot and has seen a drop in viewers because of it. Looking at the possible places for Impact to move that is one thing I am unsure of due to nobody reporting anything about possible new homes. However, if I had to guess the Fight Network might be a possible spot considering it is also owned by Anthem Sports & held an ownership interest in Impact at one point.
