So how does WWE keep the network out of Europe??
I don't know about the rest of Europe, but in the UK they were all set to launch the channel through a variety of methods, SMART TV's, XBox, etc. But then Sky (who own the rights to show WWE in the UK) kicked up a stink 'cos they only signed a new contract with WWE earlier this year I think. I can understand their position, they've just paid out a load of money to have the rights and then Vince launches his own channel to take Sky's audience away.
The latest news I saw is that Sky were considering creating a specific WWE channel through their own service. There's no other details yet, such as how much we'll pay for that privilege, so we're all hanging on until we know something. I'd much rather pay WWE direct and watch through my Xbox, $9.99 (£6-ish) is an absolute bargain. We do get free PPV's through Sky though, I think we only pay for every other one over here.
