New AEW deal guarantees quarterly PPVs through June 2021

This story was updated at 5:30 PM Eastern.

All Elite Wrestling and In Demand announced the finalization of a deal Tuesday that guarantees the brand will have a pay-per-view presence through the early summer of 2021.

In Demand, the North American-based PPV and on demand distributor co-owned by traditional cable providers Comcast, Charter, and Cox, will be guaranteed a minimum of one AEW event per quarter through June 2021. In Demand has a reach of 60 million homes and distribution deals with 200 companies.

While not mentioned in the release, it is assumed B/R Live will remain AEW's primary digital streaming option for PPV as long as Dynamite remains on TNT. 

Since formally becoming AEW earlier this year, the company has run three times on PPV. May's Double or Nothing brought in approximately 110,000 buys, August's All Out reportedly did 101,000 buys and November's Full Gear was around the 100,000 buy mark.

AEW has yet to announce the next date, location, and name for their next PPV event.
