FITE TV is the destination for many pro wrestling fans to see their favorites perform in the ring. That platform is due for a change as the ownership has switched hands.
Triller announced today that they have bought out FITE TV. This deal gives Triller a huge foothold onto the pro wrestling and MMA market that they didn’t previously have.
The specifics of how much will change are unclear, but Chairman and Co-Owner of Triller, Ryan Kavanaugh, is very excited about the possibilities.
“FITE has been a fantastic partner, and the synergy between the two businesses and teams was clear from day one. With our acquisition of FITE, we bring into TrillerNET their stellar technology, valuable customer and content partner base, and one of the most experienced executive teams in this space. The deal represents our ambitions to not only expand Triller Fight Club and grow FITE’s distribution relationships, but also to reimagine what, how and when premium music, sports and entertainment is delivered to today’s audiences.”
The Triller platform has made a lot of money off boxing in recent memory. Mike Tyson is set to fight on the streaming service whenever they can make that fight happen. Now pro wrestling fans who want to watch AEW and a number of indie federations will have to likely learn a new service.
