WWE Network, a new 24/7 streaming network, will launch live in the USA on February 24 as the first 24/7 network delivered directly through over-the-top (OTT) digital distribution. The channel will be available on desktops and laptops via WWE.com, featuring all 12 WWE live pay-per-view events, now priced at more than $600 per year, for $9.99 per month with a 6-month commitment. WWE Network will also include original programming, reality shows, documentaries, classic matches and more than 1,500 hours of video on demand at launch.
OTT is broadband delivery of video and audio like IPTV but IPTV is delivered over a multiple service provider’s infrastructure, while OTT has no provider involved and comes over the public internet.
WWE Network will also be available through the WWE App on Amazon’s Kindle Fire devices, Android devices such as Samsung Galaxy, iOS devices such as Apple iPad and iPhone, Roku streaming devices; Sony PlayStation 3 and 4, and Xbox 360. The plan is to make the network available on additional devices, such as smart TVs, this summer.
