When asked about the launch of the WWE Network during the TV Summit at New York Television Week, Stephanie McMahon said, “We are looking at traditional and nontraditional distribution, and we’re targeting first quarter next year.”
CB’s Slant: This would put the WWE Network launch before WrestleMania XXX, which would make sense given that early 2014 is WWE’s prime marketing and moneymaking season.
Rumors have swirled around thus launch for two years now, but it looks like we could finally be at an end game for the channel.
As for the WWE Network’s pay model and cost to consumers, we’ll just have to wait and see.
