ITV on Wednesday announced a deal to air All Elite Wrestling episodes of Dynamite to viewers in the United Kingdom, but fans overseas have expressed some disappointment.
ITV will not broadcast live or primetime replays of AEW Dynamite. Here’s the announcement from ITV, the company AEW partnered with for pay-per-view (PPV) distribution in the UK via their Box Office service:
(2/2) Shows will run sequentially leading up to PPV events, including before 9 November Full Gear, so more details, including subsequent schedule information, to follow soon…— ITV Wrestling (@ITVWrestling) September 25, 2019
AEW President Tony Khan then issued another statement that sounds like the two sides may still be tweaking the agreement. Here is the clarification of the announcement provided by Khan:
We’ll work together to ensure there will always be a free to air broadcast of the most recent episode of AEW: Dynamite before Saturday PPVs including Full Gear. We’ll also be announcing a live viewing solution soon for the UK + many other countries with great AEW fans. Thank you!— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) September 25, 2019
