“The FITE TV app keeps me connected to my favorite wrestling PPV's!"

SoCal Val, pro wrestling interviewer and ring announcer

About

FITE is the app that let’s you enjoy MMA, professional wrestling, boxing, and traditional martial arts right on the screen of your TV – when you want to and where you want to.

FITE is born out of our passion for fighting sports as well as our frustration of huddling over the small screen. At FITE, we believe that watching fighting shows on the big screen of your TV, or your friend’s TV, or any TV that’s WiFi connected, should be as simple as switching the TV channel.

If you’re a publisher or content owner evaluating cooperation opportunities, please email us at info@fite.tv.

For general support or if you want to share your FITE experience with us, please email us at support@fite.tv
