AEW fans have been waiting for news on the company’s long-rumored streaming service. Tony Khan has given some hints over the years, but nothing concrete has been worked out. In a recent interview, the AEW boss said things are lining up and it should become a reality soon.
Khan recently purchased Ring of Honor. The video library alone is worthy of its own streaming service. With the growing amount of AEW content, Tony thinks it is just a matter of time before his promotion strikes a deal.
Tony Khan spoke with ComicBook.com about his thoughts on the upcoming AEW streaming service. He noted that as AEW adds more content, the potential value of a streaming deal only increases. Khan said that AEW is continuing to talk to Discovery Warner Bros. about the possibility.
“As we’ve developed more content, growing the library, I think, and the demand has grown for a variety of reasons. I think all the stars are aligning, AEW as a streaming service has more potential value in the future. And then the purchase of Ring of Honor, now to have access to one of the best wrestling libraries in North America with some of today’s top stars and some of the top stars in the past few decades, and those thousands of hours of Ring of Honor footage in conjunction with the hundreds of hours of AEW footage we’ve assembled and continued to assemble on a weekly basis, week in, week out, and the growing demand from our fans.
I think all these factors contribute to why this would be a great time for AEW to launch a streaming service. And it’s a conversation that I’ve had and continue to actively have with Warner Brothers Discovery, who are one of the worldwide leaders in streaming and sports content.”
Tony Khan knows AEW fans have been chomping at the bit for a chance to access the company’s entire back library. He’s working on it, but thus far no announcement has been made. That news could be coming soon, as Khan continues to make an AEW streaming service a priority.
