USA TODAY - WWE is launching its own digital network, and for wrestling fans who are sick of forking over big bucks for every pay-per-view fight, it could be a godsend.
In an event at the CES 2014 conference that mirrored an Apple product release, wrestlers like Triple H and Shawn Michaels stood onstage and, instead of beating the living daylights out of each other, talked about the price points for a new digital content network. It was weird and fun.
The online network will cost ten dollars a month to subscribe, which, while slightly more than a Netflix streaming or Hulu Plus account, it WILL include all 12 of WWE's live events during the year, which would costs hundreds upon hundreds to order each on pay-per-view.
The network will also have over 300 past events on for on-demand viewing, PLUS some original content which all sounds hilarious, including Legends House, which is like MTV's Real World except presumably with (more) chairs being smashed over people's heads.
The network launches on February 27th.
