We all can agree that streaming has been at its highest point over the past year, whether that’s new shows coming on to streaming services like Hulu and Netflix, or big companies like NBC, CBS and FOX making their own streaming networks. Whatever the case is, we are in an era where you can stream anywhere from multiple platforms, and some of these platforms are willing to go over the top. Speaking of over the top, Philip Michael discusses how the WWE Network is now putting its content on another streaming service.
WWE and Peacock
Now many of you know what WWE is. You probably watched it as a kid, or you’re still watching it to this day. WWE has become a multi-billion-dollar force in recent years. And guess what? WWE just cut a new deal. Their network (the digital network which helped boost their stock to unprecedented heights) will be integrated into NBC’s Peacock starting in March.
How will this affect other sports networks?
Over the next five years, WWE will have $670 million in annual revenue guaranteed. How crazy is that? So, for us WWE fans, we will still be able to watch all our favorite content, just in a different space from our beloved WWE Network. Maybe other wrestling or sports outlets will follow the same trend that WWE has started.
