/// WWE Network Will Stream on Connected Devices, Not Cable

January 9, 2014  |  Media Week

At the Wynn Hotel and Casino on Wednesday evening, wrestlers including Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin and WWE chief brand officer Stephanie McMahon dropped another bombshell in the streaming wars. The oft-announced WWE Network will in fact become reality on Feb. 24 at 11:05, for a frankly surprisingly low $9.99 a month, and it will include all of the network's pay-per-views, including WrestleMania. It will not be carried in cable subscriptions; it will simply stream on every device you own. Reading between the lines, it doesn't look like originals of Raw and Smackdown, two mainstays (and perennial ratings-getters) for NBCUniveral's USA Network, will be included in the deal–but old episodes will be available on the new network, as will pre- and post-show content. It's an undeniably gutsy move for the entertainment company and one likely to raise its profile, but it's also a costly one.
