There are several ways to watch Saturday’s show, which kicks off at 8:00 pm EDT/5:00 pm PDT.

  1. Watch live on AXS with limited commercial interruption (AXS will also have a full day of NJPW programming beginning at 8:00 am EDT on Saturday).
  2. Canadian viewers can catch the show live on Fight Network.
  3. Non-US viewers can watch live on NJPW World.
  4. US viewers who don’t have AXS can watch the show live via Sling TV. They have a 7-day free trial, and AXS is available on both their orange and blue packages. Sling is available on on your computer, tablet or smartphone, and it works with Roku, Apple TV, ChromeCast, Amazon FireTV, & XBox One (this is how I am watching Saturday’s show).

As for Sunday’s show, it will be streaming live on NJPW World beginning at 8:00 pm EDT/5:00 pm PDT.

You can join me on Twitter (@AbbeyA) as I live both night’s of the NJPW US G1 Special (with a bunch of other really fun folks) beginning at 8:00 pm EDT on Saturday, and as always, I’ll have a full recap and review of the event as soon as it’s in the books.
