AEW has been around the block for well over four years now, as Tony Khan’s dream to start a pro wrestling promotion has been going well for the most part. They also have a streaming subscription service called AEW Plus, which will now a see price hike in select regions.
With the inception of AEW Rampage in 2021, Tony Khan buying out Ring of Honor and AEW Collision this year, the company has more content than ever before. That is why AEW Plus is a great way for fans to catch up on AEW-related content.
According to PWInsider, FITE released a statement regarding the AEW Plus subscription. It was announced that select regions will see a price hike of 20% while some will see discounts.
”Starting December 2023, we are implementing an advanced geo-targeted pricing system for AEW Plus, following the norms of leading streaming platforms, to adjust for regional cost differences.
There will be a modest adjustment to the subscription price in specific territories which will be up to 20% increase or decrease to your current monthly subscription plan.
This strategic move allows us to tailor subscription costs based on local currencies. Due to currency conversion rates and VAT taxes of your local app store, end prices may differ depending on your payment provider.
This change is instrumental in our commitment to bringing even more value to AEW Plus, paving the way for an array of exciting content and exclusive offerings in the months ahead.
We are committed to expanding AEW Plus further and to continue offering more exciting content and exclusive offerings. Since AEW’s debut on FITE, our journey has been nothing short of incredible.”
With AEW set to begin 2024 in a big way, perhaps some price hikes aren’t the best way to go about getting more fans. Regardless, we will have to wait and see what’s next in store for the company.
