History

The first service to stream Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) content on-demand happened in 2009, when the company launched its own 'TNA Video Vault'.[2] The service changed its name to 'TNA On Demand' in 2010 and ran up until around early 2013. The company also launched the 'TNA Wrestling Plus' YouTube channel - where users could rent pay-per-views and documentaries previously released on DVD.[3] In early 2017, Anthem launched the 'Total Access TNA' (later renamed 'Total Access Impact') originally for UK users after Challenge TV's TNA broadcasting contract had expired.[4]

On October 10, 2017 Impact Wrestling launched Global Wrestling Network with 1,000 hours of content from the Impact Wrestling libraries are available to subscribers but the network also includes tape libraries from the Fight Network, Border City Wrestling, Wrestling at the Chase and other sources.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

On August 14, 2018 Jeff Jarrett and his company Global Force Entertainment announced that it had filed a lawsuit against Impact Wrestling's parent company Anthem Sports & Entertainment in the District Court of Tennessee for copyright infringement over the GFW rights, as Jarrett owned all Global Force Wrestling properties since its creation in 2014. If the lawsuit by Jarrett is successful, Impact would need to immediately suspend the operations of GWN.[12][13]

On April 28, 2019, during its Rebellion pay-per-view, Impact announced the launching of Impact Plus which replaced Global Wrestling Network.[14]
