Best of all – Episode 1 of The Count is FREE on FITE on November 27th and 28th. Episodes 2 and 3 of The Count will debut on Pay Per View on FITE, late Saturday night, November 28th following the biggest PPV fight event of the year.

FITE has an important weekend coming up as the exclusive digital carrier of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones, Jr. PPV fight presented by Triller on Saturday, November 28th, so launching this new series featuring Tyson and Jones as co-stars in the series made a lot of sense.

"We carry a lot of iconic events on FITE," said Michael Weber, FITE’s Chief Operating Officer. “when we met The Count principals from Branded Entertainment Inc. and RYU, and saw the Tyson-Jones tie-in, we felt it was meant to be.”

FITE, an international company headquartered in New York, has streamed more than 3,500 events in the last 5 years including shows from some of the biggest PPV sports and entertainment providers.
