One AEW Pay-Per-View per quarter - Good move?

AEW has announced plans for PPV's through to 2021.

IN DEMAND AND AEW SIGN LONG-TERM, PPV OUTPUT DEAL


— AEW Commits to Provide Minimum of One PPV Event Per Quarter through 2021 —


NEW YORK CITY (December 3, 2019)—
In Demand, the leading transactional video-on-demand and pay-per-view (PPV) programming distributor, owned by Charter Communications, Comcast Cable, and Cox Communications, announced that it has finalized a deal with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) for a programming output deal that guarantees In Demand a minimum of one PPV event per quarter through June 2021.


“We’re huge fans of AEW’s exciting wrestling talent and events, and are pleased to partner with them as they continue to build their audience, marketing and distribution,” said Mark Boccardi, In Demand’s SVP, Programming & Marketing. “This commitment from AEW demonstrates that our programming partners see the value in a long-term relationship with In Demand, and with the pay- per-view platform itself. We’re able to offer our content partners the largest distribution reach in the PPV business, as well as customized marketing and promotional support.”


“AEW pay-per-view events are the best shows in wrestling, and In Demand is a perfect PPV partner for us as well as our fans,” said AEW President and CEO Tony Khan. “With In Demand’s vast reach and connectivity, we’ll be able to bring all of our AEW pay-per-view shows into the homes of wrestling fans throughout North America.”

I personally feel this a good move to begin with, maybe 6 a year if things go well. One also wonders if iN DEMAND will drop prices down from $50 to maybe the $35-$40 range, although If there are less it might not be such an issue.

What do you think?

Keeping ppvs special is a good idea... Way better than one a month (sometimes 2)... WWE ppvs are so often that they get watered down

Very good move.  This gives them time to properly build and promote it, so it has that special feel to it when it actually takes place.

As AEW only has one Primetime show a week, this is a good idea. It worked well for WWE in the 80s and early 90s.

Yeah slowly expanding is the best...  I could see next year 2021 they expanding to say 6 PPVs...  Then after maybe a full 12 months...   With that I would expect AEW to do some Specials either for TV or for BR-Live...
