AEW is coming off the heels of their latest Dynamite episode and a review of that show can be watched here.


This is good exposure for Europe & Asia & of course should mean extra money to spend. Do they have deals in South/Central America, or Africa, Australia/New Zealand? I know they still have the AEW plus package on FITE but I’m not sure how that works

In Australia it’s still FITE, but I got an email from FITE earlier saying they’re stopping the AEW plus yearly subscription and going forward they’ll only offer the monthly option. So I’m thinking that it’ll also move to DAZN in Australia sometime this year.

Has anyone ever gotten a subscriber count for AEW+ on Fite TV? I’ve never seen even a mooted figure, let alone hard numbers.

Hopefully that’s the case. Is DAZN available there?
