They've mentioned on social media they've got more TV deals though hence my confusion.

There were rumours around a few weeks ago that Fight Network in Canada were looking into picking up several wrestling companies including ICW and PROGRESS, nothing official out yet though

Are you going to add ICW On Demand as a subscription service broadcaster?

It'd probably be better to add Pivotshare as it's the subscription service that hosts ICW, PROGRESS, CZW and SMASH, they are the only 4 wrestling channels listed in their sports section here.

They have a service for RevPro, IPW:UK & Discovery Wrestling in the UK as well.

Thing with Pivotshare is it would then mean all those promotions being shown worldwide on subscription. Is that right? Can anyone sign up to watch CZW or do they have blocks in place so it is only the US? I'm happy to add all those promotions to it but it will mean companies will be getting more exposure in places they may not in real life.

That is the difficulty with On Demand networks isn't. You can have two like CZW or Progress on pivotshare though the chance of viewer pick up in the US or UK varies. I suppose a blanket very small level across all areas could even it out for viewing figures, as opposed to creating continent specific versions. Just another RW issue that a FW dataset will not really matter around.

Not sure about other countries, but I'm in the US and I can subscribe to Progress and RevPro, and I'm sure the same goes for any of the other international promotions. Their website says they have global distribution across many platforms and they have a section dedicated to wrestling, but they don't say if there are any geographical restrictions.

Edit: Only thing I'm unsure of is if you can watch the shows live. If not, I don't know how to properly emulate that in the game. Although it might just be a minor thing that can be overlooked since the event will end up on the promotion's channel eventually.

Yup, plus you pay for the ICW in Yankee doodle bucks too.

Out of curiosity, I decided to contact Pivotshare about their range and got this email back.

"Hi Joe,

Thanks for asking. Other than closed countries such as Iran and North Korea, we don't really know of any countries where our services are not available. Thanks and best of luck!"

Excellent. Thank you for getting the information. Maybe I'll do their coverage very small in US and UK (seeing as it appears to be UK and US promotions using it), and tiny everywhere else just to start with. That way they don't get ridiculously over in other areas. We shall see how it goes!

Alternatively, Tiny everywhere as it is subscription. I shall see what numbers it throws up in terms of viewers.

EDIT: Just realised SMASH and AIW are also on Pivotshare so for now everywhere is set as tiny in terms of viewership.

I'd definitely go tiny, or maybe even try and make it less realistic, but more balanced. I remember one version of your mod had like ROH and other indies on IPPV which was set as a real broadcaster, which then cause a ton of indies to grow cult. It was later fixed and IPPV just scrapped, andit turned out to be a good diea.

I just think in RW mods you have to balance things out a bit, so it doesn't get overpowered, even at expense of realism. So I wouldn't even mind if those companies didn't have any deals, because deals with small buy-rates like this were usually hard to replicate in TEW terms, maybe it's different now.

Maybe make Pivotshare a Mediagroup and make seperate subscription Broadcasters for each Area?
Would not be the most realistic way of doing it but may be a good way to balance it?

Having done a quick couple of months sim to see viewership, at tiny worldwide it varies between 2,000 and 20,000 viewers depending on promotion.

I tried it the way Diablo80 said too, and there is little change in the viewership numbers for most (only ICW lose viewers).

I may just keep it as the one company for the beta release and then we can decide after a few others have played whether to keep it as is, or change it to Diablo80's idea.
