On a non-gaming note. We will have a new channel coming but not to any cable service.
So at 9:30p.m Eastern from the Consumer Electronics Show, The World Wrestling Entertainment had a major announcement which was more of a reveal that the WWE Network will finally launch on February 24th 2014.
Along with the reveal of the network came the explanation of how it will be supported and where you can find it.
The key of the Network will be that it is a 24-7 streaming/ live content and on-demand library with scheduled shows invested into the lineup.
You will be able to watch the network through any of your mobile devices, tablets, PC’s as well as Roku and other stream boxes and your gaming console of choice.
The Network will be priced at $9.99 a month with a 6 month commitment. Which guarantees the subscriber every Pay-per-View for the year live. The first PPV to stream through the network will be the grand-daddy of them all WrestleMania 30.
The eight shows mentioned for the network will be as follows.
NXT, Superstars, WWE Legends House, WrestleMania Rewind, Raw and Smackdown Pre and Post shows, WWE Countdown, Monday Night War.
Other shows like The E produced Total Divas show were also shown to be on the network but whether it’s replays or they switch over will be known at launch.
This is extraordinary news as it will be the first ever network devoted to a business I have loved since I was a little kid. Now to relive classic matches and explore things I have missed or even never had the privilege of watching. This is what every wrestling fan and even performer has ever wanted.
If the cost and the ease that they mentioned stay true then you can count on the network being a huge success and I wish them nothing but the best.
