MLW issued the following press release to announce FITE.TV as their pay-per-view streaming partner.
NEW YORK – MLW® today announced a new digital partnership with combat sports network FITE TV, to stream Major League Wrestling’s Pay-Per-View events on its streaming platform to
customers throughout the world.
The partnership launches on Saturday, November 2, in conjunction with MLW Saturday SuperFight, live from Cicero Stadium in Chicago. Fight fans will be able to stream the highly-anticipated event live via the network’s FITE app and through its website FITE.TV. Customers who utilize this app are also able to cast all FITE programming on any television that connects to WIFI for a premium viewing experience. The FITE app is available on Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV and any Android or Apple mobile
As the leading independent over-the-top combat sports service provider, FITE has 1.5 million registered users of the digital platform. FITE has streamed more than 2,200 live combat sports
events since launching in February of 2016. The global streaming platform also boasts over 25,000 hours of on-demand content that includes weekly programming in the form of shows, instructional videos and documentaries featuring mixed martial arts, boxing and pro wrestling.
FITE TV will offer MLW Saturday Night SuperFight, the global brand’s first-ever event Pay-Per-View, to customers for $19.95 through its app and online at FITE.tv, with pre-ordering beginning on Friday September 4th. The platforms app is available for free download at the Google Play and iTunes App Store.
Powell’s POV: This is a logical partnership, as FITE.TV has established themselves as the independent streaming leader for pro wrestling events. I’d still love to see MLW stream its live Fusion specials on FITE for those of us who can’t get beIN Sports on our cable or satellite systems.
