FITE TV announced they will air the much-anticipated pay-per-view event, Double or Nothing, to non-U.S. viewers. This announcement comes just eight days before the debut of All Elite Wrestling’s inaugural event.
All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and FITE TV made a statement on their official press release.
“A global and historic event the scope of DOUBLE OR NOTHING requires nothing less than the best global platform and partner in the business, one that is capable of not only reaching wrestling fans outside of the U.S., but also serving them reliably on a wide variety of platforms,” said Tony Khan, President and CEO of AEW. “The natural choice for AEW was FITE.TV. Our mission at AEW is ‘Change the World,’ and to do so, we need to reach the world. With FITE.TV, we will.”
FITE TV is the largest independent streaming platform for combat sports and airs over 1,000 pay-per-views each year to over 1.3 million registered viewers. Back in September of last year, FITE TV streamed AEW’s first pay-per-view All In from Chicago, IL. FITE had so much success with the first partnership, that it made sense to partner up again.
FITE COO, Michael Weber spoke about the two companies working together once again.
“FITE is pumped to once again be at the forefront of providing the most exciting events in the combat sports world on the FITE digital platform. FITE experienced great success when it aired the inaugural All In wrestling event this past fall, and we look for another successful event from the AEW team.”
AEW Double or Nothing will take place live at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 25. Fans can check their local listings and pricing on the FITE TV app or on FITE.tv.
