FITE, the premier global platform for sports and entertainment, announced today that it is partnering with Virgin TV to make available select Pay Per View events through Virgin TiVo, V6 and Virgin TV 360 devices in the UK.
Major live shows from leading sports brands including All Elite Wrestling, Top Rank Boxing and PBC will be available to buy through Virgin TVs service starting with the National Wrestling Alliance: Back For The Attack on March 21st at 8 pm GMT. The NWA World Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis will appear, along with many exciting matches to be revealed soon. The scheduled start time of the event was deliberate in order to provide a more favourable prime time start for NWA fans in the UK and Europe.
Ben Halabi, FITE’s SVP International Business Development said, “As part of our continued expansion in the UK, we’re delighted to be working with Virgin Media, offering their customers access to our premium live events.”
David Bouchier, Chief TV & Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, said: “We give our customers access to some of the most popular Pay-Per-View events from the world of sport and live entertainment and this new deal with FITE will expand our offering with an increased range of events to purchase.”
FITE, an international company headquartered in New York, streams more than 1,000 events a year from Top Rank, PBC, AEW, NWA, and was the exclusive digital home of Tyson vs. Jones (US), the biggest PPV event of 2020. This year FITE has kicked off 2021 with major events from All Elite Wrestling, Impact Wrestling, Glory and BKFC KnuckleMania, and promises a bigger-than-ever year with the top PPV events via Virgin TV, with the next event scheduled to be the upcoming April 17 PPV, Triller Fight Club: Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren.
