Tony Khan has talked up the opportunities for US domestic streaming rights for AEW programming in 2024.
Speaking to Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture, Khan noted that AEW does not currently have a domestic streaming partner.
Internationally, Triller TV (formerly FITE) offers the AEW+ service for live and on-demand streams of Dynamite, Rampage, Collision and the Battle of the Belts specials.
Salcedo asked Khan what the planned sports streaming service from ESPN, FOX, and Warner Bros. Discovery could mean for AEW.
It’s really exciting timing. AEW, we do not have a streaming platform that we are with domestically right now. I think it’s something the wrestling fans have been calling for.
We have the library, we have the content. We also produce great new content, including the great pay-per-view events we do that are streaming pay-per-views right now.
I think there’s a ton of opportunity in the market, and clearly demand for it, seeing what’s happening in the industry right now.
People have seen other big streaming deals happening in wrestling. And I think in particular for AEW, the stage is set for us to have a great media rights year.
Khan also touched on television broadcast rights:
By the end of the year, we’ll know the home for AEW going forward. Right now, we have a great, great thing going with every Wednesday night on TBS, every Friday and Saturday on TNT. I love that. That’s great.
We have a great opportunity to find out where Dynamite, Rampage and Collision are going to live going forward, as well as the streaming service.
