AEW announced that they’ve signed a deal with PPV provider In Demand guaranteeing at least one AEW PPV event per quarter through June 2021.
AEW has already previously said that they’ll have four major PPVs per year: All Out, Double or Nothing, Full Gear, and a still un-named fourth PPV, which should be announced soon.
In Demand is a traditional cable PPV provider, and it’s assumed that AEW will continue to also stream their PPVs on B/R Live, which is part of their deal with TNT.
