AEW News: UK Airings of Dynamite Weekly TV Show and How International Markets Can Watch on FITE

All Elite Wrestling’s United Kingdom TV provider ITV announced the following about the airing of the AEW Dynamite TV show.

This was not well received by AEW fans in the UK because it meant that the Wednesday AEW show would air four days later on Sunday, which isn’t ideal considering fans that follow wrestling are going to go on the internet and they would be spoiled by results.

AEW Owner/President Tony Khan tweeted about the UK TV situation and also provided info about how international fans can watch AEW Dynamite on Fite TV for a low price of $4.95 per month.

That FITE deal is only available for fans outside the United States and Canada. We know the US will air Dynamite on TNT. A Canadian TV station has not been announced yet.

FITE sent out this press release today.
