With BT Sport expected to have a name change, it was also reported that a holding company has now been set up named ‘Warner Brothers Discovery Sport’.

BT Sport is notably the home of WWE in the UK, with Raw, SmackDown and NXT airing through the network.

A press release discussing the new venture shared in September 2022 confirmed that WWE is one of the brands that will be available with the new sports venture.

In the UK, AEW airs online on Fite, and on ITV4.
