AEW Dynamite will not be airing live on the West Coast or Pacific Coast as previously expected and will be on a tape delay of 3 hours.
With US and Canada having 6 different time zones, broadcast and pay television networks in these countries shift programs in time to show them in different regions. In a similar way, AEW Dynamite will live in the East Coast between 8-10 PM Slot. But in the Pacific Time Zone(West Coast), which is 3 hours behind Eastern timings, Dynamite will air with the delay.
At present, WWE’s RAW and SmackDown air with no tape delay on USA network. This means that RAW airs between 8-11 PM EST time and at the same time(5-8 PM PST) in Pacific zone. However, as SmackDown will shift to Fox Network, it will also start airing with tape delay in the West Coast. Same will be the case going forward for NXT on the USA network.
AEW’s weekly show, Dynamite will debut on 2 October 2019 in 8-10 PM time slot from Capital One Arena in Washington D.C. Dynamite will go head to head against NXT in a true sense with the tape delay in the Pacific Coast. NXT has already begun airing live on the USA Network from this week with the first hour on USA and the second on the WWE Network. Next week it will be the same crossover before going forward with both hours on the USA Network.
For viewers on the west coast, there are a couple of options to watch AEW Dynamite in a live feed. The first option is to catch the show with DirectTV which carries an East Coast feed nationwide. Another option will be the TNT app over mobile, Roku, Firestick, Apple TV and web browser, which airs the live feed from both the West and East Coast feeds.
