WWE Network launches 24/7 for only $9.99 a month
If you think it’s clobbering time for non-stop wrestling, give me a HELL YEAH!
The thing we love most about CES is that there’s a poison for every kind of addict. Just few hours ago, the event became the ring for an epic announcement of the WWE network. Fellow wrestling fans, brace yourselves, because our favourite sports entertainment is coming to the web.
As Michael Cole would definitely app to that, this time the service will rock 24/7 live stream content with a huge library consisting all past content based on your demands.
The service features full access to all upcoming PPV events as well as to the whole archive of ones from the past and supports devices running iOS, Android, Kindle, as well as streaming will be available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox and Roku.
All of this comes for $9.99 a month and every wrestling fan would agree that compared to the $600 a year we pay for PPV events, this is quite impressive and worth it.
So far the WWE Network will launch outside the US in 10 countries including Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden and the UK, and will offer 24 hours service with mix of live and produced content, shows, pre-even and post-event shows and a daily studio show.
The library that we mentioned earlier will include more than 100 000 hours of content consistent of every single WWE, WCE and ECW event, as well as, of course, RAW and Smackdown. In the meantime, NXT will also be included as a one hour weekly show and that’s not all. The retired WWE legends will kick it old school once again via Legend House that will give the stage to the ultimate badasses such as Roddy Piper and Hacksaw Jim Duggan.
The service will hit the platforms in 720p HD (at least for now) and will offer an enhanced program guide in order to help users start over on the programs. Another tweak is that the service will allow the set of reminders for future events and will send notifications via text messages from the mobile apps.(Not that anyone would need a reminder, but still..)
In addition, the WWE Network service will include a second screen content support, so streaming from mobile devices to your TV will be possible.
The WWE Network is set to launch on February 24 right before WrestleMania XXX.
