While there is still no new information on launching a streaming service domestically, AEW & ROH head Tony Khan did reveal that there is interest in supporting a focused channel that is free to the public.
Speaking to Variety as part of the Monaco Streaming Film Festival earlier this week, Khan said he feels there are opportunities to put together a FAST (free ad-supported television) channel.
FAST channels are fast becoming hot currency with major technology companies (Amazon's Freevee, The Roku Channel, Paramount's Pluto TV, Fox's Tubi) getting behind them.
“As we build a great library of historical content, it presents more and more opportunities for a potential FAST entry, I think," he said, adding that the decision would need to be made in partnership with WBD.
Regarding to a future with domestic streaming, Khan said it's a decision he would need to make in part with WBD.
In January, it was announced that WBD signed deals to launch a singular FAST channel with Roku and 14 FAST channels for Tubi.
Khan continues to be bullish about his international business, believing that "as the landscape changes, we can expand AEW’s streaming revenue multiple times over."
Pro wrestling content exists on various FAST services with FITE.tv recently announcing they surpassed the one million minutes viewed mark in their first of having a FAST channel.
WWE has not launched such a channel and has not discussed it as a strategy during their quarterly investor calls.
