WWE adding more special Wrestlemania XXX content to WWE Network

See also

WWE is really firing on all engines heading into this Sunday’s Wrestlemania XXX as it drives fans to subscribe to it’s new digital video service WWE Network, which will air the big show from the Superdome in New Orleans live. Wrestlezone reported yesterday that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is having “late night meetings” with WWE Network content director Brian Singerman and other officials to add even more special content on the streaming channel this week to make it a more immersive experience for fans paying $9.99 a month for the Netflix-like service.

WWE Network already has a ton of WM related shows including the first ever live broadcast of Saturday’s WWE Hall of Ceremony and much more. You can read the whole schedule of announced shows on the Network here. Any new live shows that are added this week will be announced on Wednesday or Thursday this week.

This truly is a huge week for WWE and it’s pirate ship ride away from traditional pay-per-view distribution through satellite and cable TV with the WWE Network where subscribers get access to live events like Wrestlemania, which is the biggest annual wrestling show of the year. WWE Network launched on February 24 with a flurry of technical issues, which is a concern to both fans who have subscribed and those that are jumping on the bandwagon this week. The worst thing that could happen to the Network is to see it crash or suffer from serious lags during the live stream of Wrestlemania, and the company understands this but weeks ago they assured fans everything will run smoothly on Sunday.

Pro Wrestling Examiner’s Perspective: WWE Network is almost everything that WWE has sold it has, this wonderful ever-flowing well of wrestling content. That is this Examiner’s opinion and you can read more of that in this official review. The extra content this week just make it easier to take the risk and subscribe to the Network with that 6 month commitment.
