DirecTV and In Demand will broadcast AEW All In as a pay-per-view

In Demand and DirecTV have confirmed to Wrestlenomics that AEW All In on August 27 will be offered as a pay-per-view, according to separate spokespeople for the PPV carriers.

In Demand is the pay-per-view carrier for many U.S. cable systems. The price on In Demand will be $49.99 in the U.S., consistent with other AEW pay-per-views.

All In will be available on DirecTV channel 106 to the satellite service’s roughly 12 million customers for a similar price point, $50.

In Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, the event will be offered digitally on In Demand’s Prices will vary by country.

Dave Meltzer reported yesterday that All In will be on pay-per-view through cable operator Comcast, which works with In Demand and provides cable TV to more than 15 million homes in the U.S.

AEW has yet to confirm All In will be distributed exclusively through pay-per-view.

In addition to traditional PPV providers through satellite and cable television, it’s standard for AEW PPVs to be available digitally on Bleacher Report in the U.S. AEW PPVs are normally available internationally through the internet on FITE and other carriers.

I’ve reached out to FITE and hope to hear back soon.

I’ve asked and haven’t heard any information yet about the possibility of All In and All Out being offered to customers as a bundle at a lower price than buying the events individually. All Out is AEW’s traditional pay-per-view event on Labor Day weekend, taking place on September 3, seven days after All In.

Andrew Zarian previously reported All In will be a PPV on Bleacher Report in the U.S.

There’d previously been speculation that the event might be broadcast through a streaming service like Max or possibly other means.

While it seems unlikely at this point, it’s not impossible that All In couldn’t still be broadcast on a streaming service as well as on pay-per-view. After all, DirecTV and other carriers continue to offer WWE events, including Summerslam this Saturday, on pay-per-view, despite the events streaming for a far lower price on Peacock domestically and on the WWE Network internationally.

According to WrestleTix daily tracker, an estimated 77,333 tickets have been distributed for All In, and an estimated 71,932 tickets sold, as of yesterday, which should make the show one of the most highly-attended pro wrestling events in history.
