Tony Khan Reveals Cause Behind AEW Dynamite Technical Issues

Last night’s edition of AEW Dynamite was plagued with various technical issues on its United States feed. Viewers watching on both TBS and TSN were subject to audio glitches throughout the show, most notably during Jim Ross’ sitdown interview with Darby Allin and TNT Champion Christian Cage. At one point, the feed cut out causing the screen to go black for almost 20 seconds whilst the announcers were running down the card for this Saturday’s AEW Collision. The show’s international feed, most notably seen through AEW Plus on FITE, was not affected.

Following the event, AEW President Tony Khan took to social media to apologize for the technical hitches and to relay the cause behind them to fans. Khan explained that the issues were related to a new operating system being used at TBS and that as TSN used the same feed, this affected viewers across both platforms. He went on to reassure fans on the West Coast that the company was working on fixing the technical issues for the show’s broadcast on TBS West later that night.

“I apologize for the persistent issues at @TBSNetwork tonight with our #AEWDynamite feed,” Khan wrote in a post to his official X account. As I understand, there were issues at TBS with a new operating system; thankfully AEW’s international feeds were unaffected. We’re working now to put a clean feed on TBS West later tonight!” In a separate post, Khan added, “TSN played the US feed of the show tonight, which is why they had the same issues on their feed as well.”

The September 27th AEW Dynamite served as the final edition of the show before the inaugural iteration of AEW WrestleDream takes place this weekend in Seattle, Washington. Several announcements were made on the show regarding the upcoming pay-per-view event: Due to Adam Cole’s injury that will require surgery, MJF will now defend the ROH World Tag Team Championship against The Righteous in a handicap match. Ricky Starks vs. Wheeler Yuta was also made official for WrestleDream.
