Default WWE Network

The new WWE Network will be coming to Rogers. WWE & Rogers signed a 10 year agreement to carry the online network as a pay tv channel. Rogers will distribute the channel to other providers across Canada. No idea what this means for WWE Network in Canada via video game systems or the WWE website as nothing like that was announced. Also no idea what this means for the VOD content WWE Network offers to subscribers.

Is a major slap to the face of Canadian fans. I already subscribe to Wwe network but if we don't get the same setup as the US by accessing on all platforms without being cable customer I'm canceling the WWE network because, I don't want any more of my money to go any cable company especially Rogers and don't want to spend money on WWE who treats it's Canadian customers like second class citizens compared to its US customers

I wonder if they plan to offer it to other providers? What will the price be?

Looking at the information given, it looks like Sportsnet 360 is gaining Main Event, but possibly losing NXT. That's a lousy trade, NXT is routinely the best hour of wrestling WWE produces.

Pretty unexpected outcome.

The WWE needs some competition - they are getting too greedy.

Somebody needs to start a WCW-like organization with deep pockets.

WWE has competition. Their competition just lost their TV deal.

Rogers will probably take Monday Night Raw off of Sports Net 360 and move it The WWE Network. This will force subscriber to add that channel which off course will not be available on Bell.

...they literally just said that SportsNet 360 is the exclusive carrier of Raw and Smackdown. It's not moving anywhere.

Anybody that wants it can still sub to it over the internet right now without Rogers. I know quite a few ppl that currently sub to it.

Is this channel going to be a live channel or just VOD content?

And you'll be FORCED to pay as a pay tv channel on top of that. I don't think Rogers will do that as those on Rogers I don't think wil want to pay more juswt to see RAW or Smackdown.

MCIBUS: T & A Wrestling is always good. TNA Wrestling was crap.

thenewdc: Both. You can watch the PPV's live plus their shows.

one good thing about this is if your cable company offers it then you might not have to sign up for 6 months
