Triller buys Fite TV streaming service

Ahead of this weekend’s Paul-Askren PPV, Triller has bought the streaming service FITE TV.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Fite TV, a streaming service that has focused on combat sports and pro wrestling since launching in 2012, has been bought out by TrillerNet, parent company to Triller.

The move puts more major resources behind Fite, and also gives Triller a bigger in-house foothold in the streaming world, particularly for pay-per-view events like Saturday’s Jake Paul-Ben Askren fight.

“With our acquisition of Fite, we bring into TrillerNET their stellar technology, valuable customer and content partner base, and one of the most experienced executive teams in this space,” a Triller statement from Bobby Sarnevesht and Ryan Kavanaugh said. “The deal represents our ambitions to not only expand Triller Fight Club and grow Fite’s distribution relationships, but also to reimagine what, how and when premium music, sports and entertainment is delivered to today’s audiences.”

Triller also recently acquired Verzuz, which is a thing people on the internet keep talking about and I don’t know what it is.

As for how this news affects combat and pro wrestling fans, the ideal would be “not much.” Maybe some tweaks but the overall Fite service is very good, which is probably why Triller bought them out in the first place.
