AEW All In sees the company make its United Kingdom debut on August 27 at Wembley Stadium, London, England.

With ticket sales passing the 65,000 market for the UK debut PPV and a live gate of close to $9m, there’s clearly a huge fanbase for AEW either in, or willing to travel to, the United Kingdom for the upcoming show.
That UK fanbase, however, doesn’t appear to watch AEW Dynamite on British broadcaster ITV4.

Dave Meltzer addressed this in the recent issue of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, writing:
“It’s actually become amazing about U.K. ratings on ITV4 since the announcement of Wembley.

Not only, as noted before, have ratings not gone up since the announcement, but they’ve actually declined greatly.”
ITV4 airs AEW Dynamite on the Friday after the show is broadcast and previously also aired AEW Rampage on the following Tuesday.
The show is also available on demand after broadcast in the UK via the ITVX streaming platform for viewers in the United Kingdom.

Viewers in the United Kingdom are also able to watch AEW weekly content live and on demand through the Fite TV AEW Plus subscription service.
As previously reported, DAZN entered into a partnership with AEW to bring AEW Dynamite, pay-per-views and other content to the service in 42 different markets across Europe and Asia.
The United Kingdom wasn’t listed in the territories that fall under this partnership.

It would also be reported that ITV were unable to broadcast AEW Dynamite live due to different advertising schedules.
It has also been revealed that AEW Collision will also air on both FITE and ITV4 when it debuts, with similar arrangements where it’ll air live on FITE but not on ITV4.
