The WWE Network has been hailed as ‘blueprint’ for other major broadcasters after shares in WWE rocketed last week.
Yahoo analyst Jeff Macke said WWE was performing “well ahead of expectations” in the stock market on his Trending Tickers show - and credited the success of the Network for helping WWE’s bounce upwards.
Noting WWE had taken the 24/7 linear channel and streaming service global and had amassed over 1 million subscribers by “hook and crook and discounts” in a year, Macke also suggested other entertainment giants would be well advised to follow WWE’s approach.
"WWE’s 9.99 a month mostly subscriber Network is sort of a rough draft of future offerings from content providers like HBO, Disney and other brands,” reported Macke.
WWE Network is currently being offered free throughout February for new subscribers - and the deal will include next Sunday’s Fast Lane supercard.
