Imagen Televisión is set to broadcast WWE’s flagship programs Raw and SmackDown on free-to-air TV in Mexico.

Beginning tomorrow, Imagen Televisión will air a weekly one-hour version of Raw at 3 p.m. on Saturdays. It will also broadcast a weekly hour-long version of SmackDown at 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Both programs will feature Spanish commentary. The new agreement with Imagen Televisión complements FOX Sports’ broadcasts of Raw and SmackDown, which will continue to air live in Mexico and the rest of Latin America.

“We are thrilled to bring Raw and SmackDown back-to-back, every Saturday to our viewers,” said Adriana Ibañez, the chief content officer for Imagen Televisión. “WWE’s content has proven to be very well received by the Mexican audience and we are counting on fans to come enjoy these two fun-filled shows at Imagen Televisión.”

“Imagen Televisión shares our vision and passion for engaging and entertaining our fans,” said Michelle Wilson, WWE’s co-president. “This partnership to televise localized WWE programming on free-to-air TV in Mexico allows us to expand our reach and deliver action-packed, family-friendly entertainment to WWE fans throughout the country.”
