Tony Schiavone Thinks There Is Going To Be An AEW Streaming Service By The End Of 2022

Could AEW content be landing on a streaming service sometime soon? Tony Schiavone shared his thoughts.

During a recent edition of Ask Tony Live! on AdFreeShows, the legendary commentator was asked if AEW could one day launch a streaming service of their own, similar to what WWE did in 2014. Not knowing anything for certain, Tony offered up his opinion on the matter, saying the following:

"Yes, I do. I think we're going to see a streaming service -- This is my thought, I don't know anything for sure. Just by talking to people, I think there's going to be a streaming service by the end of 2022. So I think it's going to come up very, very soon. I do know that there were people in Warner Media that I knew, that I still know, that work in Warner Media that have nothing to do with AEW and told me that -- They said, 'You know that AEW is going to be part of HBO Max.' HBO Max has all these different -- They have DC. I remember asking someone in the front office, not Tony, I said, 'Are we going to be on HBO Max?' They said, 'Doubt it, until they want to come up with a lot more money.' So I think we're going to end up getting our own streaming service. I'm just trying to fill in all of the blanks here from what I've heard. It's not really on Tony's radar right now, but I'm sure there are people in the office that are working that out for him."

Earlier this month, Tony Khan revealed that he was talking to WarnerMedia about a potential streaming partnership and that he wants to figure out a solution for the fans. You can read his comments here.

Khan previously noted that he turned down a WWE Backstage format for AEW Rampage as he wanted to keep it strictly wrestling on network television. You can find his full comments on the matter by clicking here.

AEW currently runs 4 weekly shows; Dynamite, Rampage, Dark, and Dark Elevation. They also have quarterly PPV's, Road To specials, and additional programming that can be found on cable, Youtube, FITE TV, and various other platforms.
