Today, IMPACT Wrestling announced via press release that they are launching a brand-new subscription-based streaming service entitled IMPACT Plus. The app will feature a library spanning the company’s 17-year history, as well as monthly live specials.

“Anthem Sports & Entertainment is proud to partner with Brightcove on the development and launch of IMPACT Plus,” said Ed Nordholm, the current president of IMPACT Wrestling as well as the executive vice president of Anthem.

“As our subscriber base has grown, we have established the need for a more robust back-end technology, while looking to enhance our user experience and content offering. Starting this Sunday, we will be delivering a live premium event every month exclusively for IMPACT Plus subscribers.”

Plus will be available across multiple streaming devices, including online, iOS, and Android, as well as on Roku and Amazon Fire TV. The service will be available through subscription at a monthly rate of $7.99.

The streaming service will offer its first live special, Code Red, on May 5 at the NYC Arena in Queens, NY. Notable matches already confirmed on the card include a mixed tag match featuring Taya Valkyrie and Johnny Impact vs. Eddie and Alisha Edwards, and a tag match pitting Tessa Blanchard and Violette vs. Scarlett Bordeaux and Sonya Strong.

Subscribers to IMPACT’s Global Wrestling Network will migrate over to Plus, and the four major pay-per-views will also be available for purchase through the app.
