Since All Elite Wrestling (AEW) was presented to the public, there has been a lot of talk about the agreements that this company has negotiated with multiple television networks, with the aim of finding a space for the weekly show they want to broadcast to the public.
The latest reports say that AEW has already achieved a television space in which to broadcast its events and shows. According to the Twitter user @fightoracle, Warner Media Group would already have the rights to broadcast All Elite Wrestling, both for weekly shows as well as pay-per-view (PPV). ProWrestling Sheet journalist Ryan Satin has also confirmed the news.
I heard the same thing over the weekend from a trustworthy source, but hadn’t been able to work on confirming yet since I’ve been sick since getting home.

The user assures that the weekly program will be broadcast on the TNT and TBS channels, both parts of the Turner Media Network conglomerate, part of Warner. This move would make AEW also on cable television, as is WWE with Monday Night Raw.
This user, who has been linked to previous AEW announcements, also clarified that Warner would announce All Elite Wrestling as one of its exclusives in the upfront that they plan to carry out next May 15 . The product of AEW would be part of several new features that the company wishes to present for this 2019 and early 2020.
Fightoracle speculated that AEW could transmit its pay-per-view on HBO. Warner has expressed his desire to open one of the most important channels in the United States (and the world through its platform) to a new audience, and the product that Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks plan to offer could fit into what is sought for the programming of the channels and platform respectively.
