The weekly TV series, called AEW: Dynamite, debuts on Wednesday, October 2, from Washington, D.C., on the TNT network for U.S. viewers. Now, for the first time ever, a TV series will be available LIVE worldwide at the same time through the innovative AEW Plus digital option.

“We are very pleased to expand our relationship with AEW,” said FITE COO Mike Weber. “We have worked with AEW since their inception, and this is the next step in their growth. We are thrilled to continue our working relationship with them and delivering what their fans want to see -- more.”
“FITE answered our call, and the call of AEW fans outside of North America, to offer the best global platform and partner for our wildly successful DOUBLE OR NOTHING event earlier this year, but that was just the start,” said Tony Khan, President and CEO of AEW. “The power of AEW will now be readily available live and internationally with AEW Plus, and that’s thanks to FITE, which combines the best technology with the passion of delivering our shows to audiences throughout the world.”
Note: AEW has announced their next PPV Event, “Full Gear,” will take place on November 9 in Baltimore, but the quarterly PPV events shall remain separate from the AEW Plus series subscription.
