Ive seen something on Twitter about ITV offering it On Demand the next day - if this is true then this has changed the game again? Because then we effectively have what most UK fans would want - the show as close to live as possible, available for free, no streaming required  and hopefully non censored

ITV have announced changes to their original plans following feedback. This comes on the same day as AEW announced a deal for the Canadian market.

The show will now be available on demand from 7pm the next day, as well as being shown at 11:45pm Friday nights on ITV4.

They will also still air the 8:20am Sunday show too in addition to a 1 hour highlights show on mondays 11:45pm on ITV

I have to say thats a far greater option than the original Sunday morning offering - Tony has done well to renegotiate that

I'm glad they have listened to the issue and done something about it, but it's still not live.

If I give this show a chance and with Smackdown moved and my usual Friday watch of Impact that's going to be six hours less ad breaks to watch in 24 hours from approx friday night to saturday night.

Don't care what anyone says Raw was very good this week and Smackdown has The Rock, so it's huge they pull something out the bag later.

It's good to see they've acted so quickly and listened to fan feedback. Getting the new arrangement in place before the first show aired must have taken some fast negotiating. 

I'm fine with the new set up with ITV, not airing live doesn't bother me at all as I would never watch live anyway and I'm sure a large percentage of UK fans wouldn't due to the early hours time slot that would require. Most people probably wouldn't be watching until the following day when the episode becomes available through On Demand anyway. 

WWE and AEW combined makes for 9 hours of wrestling per week now so what I will probably do is series link the 11:45pm showing as I often won't get around to watching it until after that day anyway and that way I can skip through the ads. The one hour highlights show is a good idea too as with so much wrestling each week now there will be definitely be times when all I can squeeze in is a condensed down version, I wish WWE would do a decent highlights show for Raw and Smackdown.

I'm glad to hear they got shit sorted out for you guys. Dynamite was great. I can't wait to see next  week's episode. Unlike with WWE where I always feel like they could do something great... But they will probably screw it up, with AEW I feel like at any moment something game changing for the entirety of the industry could take place. Something on the level of like when Nitro turned Hogan heel to form the nWo.

To me Dynamite is the show to watch. NXT is good, raw and SmackDown might be great once in a while but usually bland  and boring. Dynamite has all the momentum.

There were technical issues with ITV on demand last night and AEW Dynamite didn't appear on the ITV Hub at 7pm as promised, I've checked this morning and the episode is now available on there but I last checked last night at nearly 10pm and it still wasnt there so again more frustration for UK fans with this ITV deal.

I ended up watching via a torrented version in the end which was a little strange as the whole 2 hours were filmed including the periods where the show had gone for a ad break, not sure if this was the version that went out on the FITE app. 

Apparently talks are ongoing to get Dynamite airing live over here. To be honest I would be happy if the show was available via the ITV Hub from first thing Thursday morning.

Yeah on the TNT app watching Dynamite had one silly issue, where the commentators were talking about the picture in picture during the commercial breaks, but the app just cut away for different commercial breaks and it made the programming seem a bit odd at times because there was no picture in picture for those commercials.

Understandable sure, but it made listening to the commentators at times seem a bit laughable.

It sounds to me like the torrent you watched showed what was on during the commercial breaks in the picture in picture they talked about.

In the version I was watching you could see what was happening in the ring during every single ad break, at times that was absolutely nothing so it was just a empty ring, other times it was talent just dragging out their ring entrances, Kenny and the Young Bucks grabbed a mic and just played up to the crowd a little, there was a break during the Pac/Page match and during that time Page just mostly sold on the canvas while Pac walked around the ring occasionally stomping on him, and yeah you could see everything that was going on during the split screen time.

There was a funny moment during a ad break while the Jericho and co match was going on, Jericho picked up a hot dog sausage that had been thrown into the ring and grabbed a mic and asked who it belonged to.

AEW needs a commentator like Bobby The Brain Heenan. I was rewatching the segment where Moxley attacked Omega and DDTed him through the glass coffee table, and I could just hear Bobby Heenan saying: "Look at that coward Kenny! He dove right through the table to avoid fighting Moxley!"

God I miss Heenan. Corey Graves looked like he might have been able to be that guy for a while when he was working commentary in NXT, but now with him having to parrot Vince all the time he's no where near as fun to listen to.

That said, I LOVE the team of J.R., Tony Schiavone, and Excalibur. but if I had my way I would replace Excalibur with an in-his-prime Bobby Heenan in a heartbeat. Then again, if we were going that far, I would replace J.R. with an in-his-prime Gorilla Monsoon, too.

AEW have announced that they will be releasing all of the dark matches on their YouTube channel in a show called AEW:Dark

This has gone down well with what seems to be all wrestling fans.

Personally im not THAT interested in dark matches because they re there purely for crowd filler but its wrestling content and if its good then ill watch it
