The ever fickle stock analysts are falling back in love with the WWE Network. After fears of the revolutionary over-the-top live streaming service peaking for the year and on the decline, many on Wall Street have turned babyface and see the opportunity for continued growth. Deadline.com has more at this link.
TalkSport.com has an article on WWE broadcasting their July 4, 2015 event from Tokyo live on the WWE Network at 6:30 AM EDT. They note it only improves the chances of WWE televising a pay-per-view from the United Kingdom. You can read their coverage at this link.
Richard Reacts: WWE’s stock price is up right now off the increased expectations. WWE is growing their Network by offering it free to new signups and impressively converting them into paid subscribers. Unlike the fickle stock analysts, we’ve remained consistent - the WWE Network is a good thing for the company and a good thing for the fans. TalkSport.com is correct in that WWE airing live from Japan improves the company’s chances of broadcasting a PPV from the United Kingdom, especially now when they have the ability to convert a live event to a pay-per-view with just a couple of weeks notice. The WWE Network is a game changer, one that benefits the fans.
