WWE Gets Streaming Boost as Wrestling Fans Subscribe

WWE has been at the forefront of the media industry’s attempts to establish a business providing programming straight to viewers, without an intermediary like cable or satellite networks, while still maintaining lucrative TV deals. The company made all its content, including live events, available on the internet to paid subscribers in February 2014. Last year, WWE Network was the fifth-largest streaming service by subscriber volume, beating even HBO Now, according to Parks Associates Research. Only Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Major League Baseball’s MLB.TV ranked higher. – Brooke Fox, Bloomberg http://ift.tt/2a30NOt
