New Japan Pro Wrestling World (NJPW World) is a subscription-based video streaming service owned by New Japan Pro Wrestling. On December 1, 2014, NJPW and TV Asahi announced "New Japan Pro Wrestling World", a new worldwide streaming site for the promotion's events. All major NJPW events air live on the service, which also features matches from the promotion's archives, dating back to 1972. In 2015, King of Pro-Wrestling marked the first ever event on NJPW World to feature English commentary, provided by Kevin Kelly and Matt Striker. As part of a working relationship between NJPW and the Mexican Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL) promotion, NJPW began airing CMLL's Viernes Espectaculares show on NJPW World, starting July 9, 2016.
