Anthem is bringing fans more IMPACT Wrestling content with a new AVOD (advertising-supported Video on Demand) service on Glewed. IMPACT Wrestling, AXS TV, and Fight Network content are set to be on channels, which will debut in quarter three of this year.
Glewed is more akin to YouTube or Daily Motion where ads are used to support the site as opposed to a subscription service like Netflix.
IMPACT Wrestling already has its own subscription service with IMPACT+.
