Anthem Media announced today the launch of the Global Wrestling Network, a service that Ed Nordholm had discussed several weeks back on Wrestling Observer Radio.
While TNA Impact would be the major library used, the network will also use tape libraries that are owned by The Fight Network, including several years worth of Wrestling at the Chase from St. Louis, and a collection of tapes that aired on Canadian PPV produced by Aaron Weiss of some older promotions. In addition, there will be other Canadian independent content including Border City Wrestling, the promotion run by Scott D'Amore.
The company announced the service would debut with 1,000 hours of content at GlobalWrestlingNetwork.com. There is a 30-day free trial available and the price point after that is $7.99 per month
The service will be available on iOS and Android platforms and they state it will be coming soon to Roku, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, and Apple TV.
The service will also include the weekly episodes of Impact after they first air on television in the United States, Canada, and the UK, as well as episodes of Xplosion and weekly digital content produced for the service.
