    Considering the situation there in this actually might work out for them if they can get people to check out episodes just by curiosity.

    Mods: You can move this to the "Guess this is the Impact Wrestling thread" if you want.

    Why don't they just sell their distribution rights to WWE so they can actually be seen by human beings on the WWE Network... for £9.99:wow:

    To simplify it, Anthem, a Canadian broadcasting company (started by guys from Winnipeg - hence the Jericho connection) owns The Fight Network as well as a bunch of other channels (Pursuit being another).

    The Fight Network probably shows 20 hours of various TNA programming a week. Runs Impact three or four times, an old PPV a few times, Xplosion a bunch of times, and some original shows made up of old clips. So without the ability to air that tape library, their programming block would look pretty empty, especially with them allegedly losing UFC rights recently too.

    Makes sense why they tried to sell to the AEW guys as well too. Wouldn't get them off The Fight Network most likely.

    15K subs is impossible. People sub to a personality, not a brand. They sub because they are connected to the performer who is talking to them. A platform like Twitch is not designed for programming with ZERO viewer interaction. They should start with a 1K goal, and add to that every week if they achieve it.

    And keep in mind their live show is only once a week, so it's parallel to a real streamer only streaming once a week, then putting the VOD replay on the rest of the time, and expecting to gain and not lose subs.

    When they first launched their twitch channel, they were doing a few live events and lots of first-run recap bits from Josh Matthews and it did no better than what they do now just replaying old TNA footage on loop.

    This will not earn them money, but in addition to having that bottom tier TV deal, it's a "hey, why not?" movement, and certain doesn't cost them anything at all to do.

    If people don't sub, won't they still get ad revenue as long as people tune in?

    Most of the money is in donations, bits, subs. For the pre-roll ads if you average 1K concurrent viewers for one hour, you are only gonna make about 10 bucks. Keep in mind half of your viewers are using ad-block to circumvent them.

    15K subs is 37K profit for them (Twitch takes half).

    EDIT: For subs, you make half, other half goes to twitch. Usually a third of your concurrent viewers are gonna sub to you. So 1000 concurrent, x 2.50, = like 800 per month. 1K on twitch is very hard to do, especially considering all the circumstances about schedule that I mentioned.
