Re: Whatever Happened To The WWE Network?

I thought Directv had a survey about the network just over a month ago? Asking if they would buy it to the customers They said something like the network will carry every ppv except WM. I have DTV and would subscribe to it. I hope many others will do as well.

Re: Whatever Happened To The WWE Network?

I don't see why WWE was/is so intent on getting their own cable network on the air... they already have their WWE Classics on Demand service, which already offers classic footage that the WWE Network promised to deliver and could easily be adapted to accommodate their Godawful original programming that they intend for the network, as well. I'm not sure if they could air live pay-per-views from it, but, still... even if they do manage to get this stupid "network" going, what would they do with their on demand service?

It's currently being repackaged but is still planned for release.

The Unofficial WWE Championship

The Unofficial WWE Championship is unknowingly held and defended at house shows, Monday Night Raw, Smackdown and Pay-Per-Views. When a champion is crowned, he defends his title every single time he competes in a singles match. If he is defeated via any decision a new champion is crowned and the trend continues.

Re: Whatever Happened To The WWE Network?

WWE is spending millions to get this Network thing to happen. 40 million all told, from a conference call and an article by a financial analyst in the Los Angeles Times.

Quote:
"You guys need to say more than you have," an exasperated Brad Safalow, an analyst with PAA Research, said on the WWE's second-quarter-earnings call last month. McMahon promised more clarity on the company's next earnings call. So far, WWE has spent about $40 million developing a programming service, according to its financial filings.
XFL lost 60 million for the company. So we are already in the neighborhood of "lost as much money as XFL" and the Network doesn't even exist.

Re: Whatever Happened To The WWE Network?

I love the idea of the network, simply because I'm gonna buy the PPV's anyway.

They also mention that they could have more non-PG programming, which could be cool.



I would absolutely pay $15 a month for it if it included PPV's

Re: Whatever Happened To The WWE Network?

The WWE Network went downhill as fast as Linda's political career.

The funny thing about that joke is that neither took off to begin with.

Re: Whatever Happened To The WWE Network?

Their "break even point" is 1 million subscribers. WWE Classics on Demand doesn't even get 100,000. Their top tier PPVs do like, 300,000 to 500,000, basically.

At this conference call they acknowledged the "huge cost" of the PPVs and then talked about "cannibalization." That is, people would go to the Network for 12 dollars instead of buying the PPV for 45. At 1 million people, they said that costs them 10 million dollars.

Well, how about you go to a 10 a year schedule and knock a little money off the cost? Say, make it a flat 40, 50 for Mania? If you'll lose the money anyway. The people who buy all of 'em would like to save 200 a year. See, right now 1 WWE PPV costs going to the top 4 movies of the year, buying the top 5 paperbacks of the year/downloading them or an entire month of internet. Nobody is gonna pay 45 dollars for the fuckin' PPV when they can watch it on the internet that I pay 35 dollars a month for. Over 600 dollars of cost, not worth, of PPVs a year basically forces me to stream and download and no I don't feel bad. WWE is screwing WWE on their pricing.
