FITE TV issued the following press release to announce FITE Fest package for various events that will be held during WrestleMania weekend.
New York, NY (February 27, 2019) – During the first weekend of April this year New York City will host the biggest pro wrestling weekend of the year and FITE will be there to give viewers a front row seat with the debut of FITE Fest.
FITE Fest will feature over 20 live telecasts starting with Wrestle Pro on Wednesday, April 3 rd and includes mega events like ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard, Impact Wrestling: United We Stand, WWN’s Super Show – Mercury Rising, Wrestle Con’s Super Show and House of Glory’s Culture Clash 2019. All of this and more with a pay per view value of over $280 for a limited time only at a price of $119.99. All programs are currently available for pre-sale on an event by event basis, but this special offer to enjoy the entire FITE Fest line up is only available through March 11th . The complete lineup is available at www.FITE.tv.
The FITE digital television network is available on all major platforms including it’s website www.FITE.tv, Apple and Android mobile apps, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, and Amazon FireTV. FITE mobile apps feature the patented technology to cast the program to any connected television and is available worldwide.
“The first weekend of April is the biggest weekend each year for the world of pro wrestling and this year is no exception. We’re proud to present all of the live action throughout the weekend with FITE Fest,” said FITE COO Michael Weber. “This would not have been possible without the great collaboration from our partners at ROH, NJPW, Impact Wrestling, WrestleCon, WWN, WrestlePro and House of Glory resulting in this unique opportunity for the fans worldwide to easily enjoy the best pro wrestling shows.
Powell’s POV: Obviously, no WWE events are included in the package, but it’s a great collection of non-WWE events that will be held during the biggest weekend of the year. It’s a great value for fans who try to catch all of these events and would normally be forced to buy them individually. For that matter, fans who purchase the package may end up checking out some shows that they would have passed on.
