The WWE Network: It's Happening!
As every single wrestling fan should have heard by now the "groundbreaking announcement" last night was for the WWE Network. The Network is going live on Monday, February 24th and I have every intention of purchasing it that night. Why? It's a tremendous value.
First, let's take a look at how it works though. The Network will be a multi-platform streaming/on demand style channel. Think Wrestling Netflix. The cool part for me at least is that it actually will stream programming 24/7 so you're not just left to your own devices to find something to watch. When you fire up the app you can immediately delve into the on demand content or you can watch whatever they happen to be showing. It will be available on computers, iOS devices, gaming consoles, etc. giving you tons of flexibility in how you watch it.
Secondly, I mentioned it was a tremendous value. That's because you get WrestleMania along with every other PPV for $9.99 a month. That $9.99 month prices comes from a six month commitment so basically for the cost of WrestleMania on PPV you are getting half of that year's PPVs. That's a tremendous deal before you even get into all the content that is sitting there waiting for you to watch. Some may not be interested but there will also be original programming available.
All-in-all, unless you leave in the sticks and don't have access to high-speed internet or if your finances just don't allow it this is a must-have for every wrestling fan.
Don't take my word for it though, WWE has created an FAQ that will cover all the ins and outs of the WWE Network.
