WrestleZone.com recently broke news with its exclusive report on the WWE Network. In the website’s report, Justin Labar and his Chair Shot Reality team were able to confirm a previous report by PWInsider that the launch date for the network will be on February 24, 2014.
WrestleZone went on to report that the WWE Network will contain all editions of Monday Night Raw, WWE Smackdown, and all WWE pay-per-views that were ever produced. Although, the WWE Network will not be able via cable providers. The WWE Network will most likely be a Netflix-esque project in which the content will be available on computers, smart phones, and tablets. The expected price range is somewhere in the range of $10 – $12 a month. However, WWE may try to incorporate a six month deal at its launch with WrestleMania 30 included in the deal. Along with that, the WWE Network will have live streaming coverage, which will likely include every pay-per-view except WrestleMania.
In response to WrestleZone‘s report, WWE issued the following statement:
“In addition to not being able to confirm timing of WWE Network launch, WWE is still considering all options for distribution, pricing and role of pay-per-view.”
However, WrestleZone and Chair Shot Reality stand by their previous reports, but understand that the only thing WWE can confirm at the time is that WWE Classics On Demand will be gone on January 31, 2014.
