WWE Network, the subscription streaming service of the wrestling promotion, is to be distributed by the Flow TV streaming platform in the Caribbean.
The deal with Flow’s owner C&W Communications, announced yesterday (September 1), will see all WWE Network’s premium live events and its entire archive library made accessible to subscribers to the Flow Sports packages on Flow Sports Extra Channel 4.
The content will be available via a dedicated WWE Network section in the Flow Sports app.
In addition, the Flow 1 linear channel will continue to broadcast live weekly episodes of WWE’s Raw, SmackDown, and NXT 2.0 (due to expand into Europe) output to all subscribers of Flow TV and BTC TV, the telecoms, internet, and TV provider in the Bahamas.
WWE joins a variety of other major sporting properties on Flow, including soccer’s UEFA Champions League, Europa League, and Bundesliga, cricket’s IPL, and athletics’ Diamond League.
Matt Drew, senior vice president of WWE International, said: “We are excited to expand our successful partnership with CWC into the future. By delivering our premium live events, starting with Clash at the Castle, as well as WWE’s massive content library, we believe it will be easier than ever for fans across the region to enjoy everything that WWE has to offer.”
Britta Reinhardt, chief commercial officer for consumer markets added: “Flow/BTC is delighted to be the new home of WWE in the region. This partnership is exciting news for our customers and will deliver thousands of hours of premium entertainment content across our markets.
“WWE has consistently ranked amongst the most watched content by our subscribers and now with additional access to WWE Premium Live events promises to deliver even greater value for our Flow/BTC customers.”
