Less than a year after securing a multi-year streaming deal with TelevisaUnivision, AEW fans were surprised to find the promotion no longer available on the ViX platform, marking the second international broadcast deal to dissolve quietly.

Despite no formal announcement from AEW or TelevisaUnivision regarding the termination of the contract, an observant eye on ViX’s support page revealed the removal of AEW content from the service.

While the page did not specify the exact date of the removal, clues within the HTML source code indicated the update took place on March 13th.

The collaboration between AEW and TelevisaUnivision was unveiled in July 2023 with the goal of bringing AEW’s weekly TV shows and additional content to ViX’s premium tier, catering to audiences in Mexico, certain regions of Latin America, and the Caribbean.

While financial specifics were not publicly disclosed by AEW or TelevisaUnivision, industry analyst Brandon Thurston estimated the deal’s annual value to be around $150,000. However, official confirmation on this figure remains elusive.

This recent development with ViX is not the sole instance of AEW’s international streaming partnerships faltering this year.

At the start of the year, AEW content mysteriously disappeared from DAZN, despite a multi-year agreement inked in January 2023, spanning 42 markets. Similarly, Thurston estimated the annual worth of this deal to be approximately $250,000, yet, akin to the ViX agreement, official figures were not disclosed by either party.

The abrupt end of AEW’s ViX streaming deal, coupled with the earlier discontinuation with DAZN, underscores the volatility of international broadcast partnerships and the challenges in maintaining consistent global distribution for wrestling promotions like AEW.
