UPDATE: A new report has indicated that AEW is currently not close to signing a streaming deal. More at this link.
A report has emerged that AEW is planning a streaming service that will likely be in partnership with Warner Bros Discovery.
In a feature on Tony Khan that appeared in Bloomberg, Kim Bhasin wrote:
“In March, Khan acquired the small but respected pro wrestling company Ring of Honor from Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. for an undisclosed sum, adding a new crop of wrestlers, some intellectual property and an extensive video library.
“AEW is also considering starting a streaming service, likely through a deal with its broadcast partner, Warner Bros. Discovery Inc., according to a person familiar with management’s thinking, who asked not to be named.
“Last year, AEW broke $100 million in annual revenue for the first time, the person says.”
It was recently announced that AEW had struck a multi-year detail with DAZN to air content to 42 markets including Asia and Europe.
In 2022, it was noticed that AEW DVDs of the PPV events were no longer being carried by ShopAEW and Pro Wrestling Tees.
