WWE Content Lands in Croatia for the First Time


RTL Televizija has inked a new deal that will see such WWE programming as Raw and SmackDown airing for the first time ever in Croatia starting this weekend.

RTL Televizija’s free-to-air channel RTL 2 will broadcast a weekly hour-long version of Raw at 7 p.m. on Saturdays and a weekly hour-long version of SmackDown at the same time on Sundays—all with Croatian commentary. The two shows will also be available on RTL Televizija’s TV Everywhere platform and on its 21-day VOD catchup window.

“RTL, Croatia’s family of channels, is happy to become home to WWE, a leader in global entertainment and its flagship programs Raw and SmackDown,” said Filip Žunec, head of the licensed program department. “We are pleased to bring WWE programming to our audience, airing it on our free-TV channel with Croatian commentators enriching the experience on RTL 2.”

“We are thrilled to complete our first-ever broadcast agreement in Croatia,” added Michelle Wilson, WWE’s co-president. “This partnership to televise WWE programming allows us to expand our reach and deliver our unique blend of action-packed, family-friendly entertainment to WWE fans throughout the country.”
